Yin Yoga Workshop with Elles Theulen
Yin Yoga is a quiet practice of long held, passive poses to induce calm, release the joints and restore the vital organs, making us feel light, open and refreshed.
In this series of workshops we will explore the beneficial effects of yin yoga poses on the deeper tissues that surround the joints to increase mobility. Each workshop will also highlight a set of meridians that is influenced by the shapes we take.
The workshops start with an introduction to its particular theme, followed by a full yin yoga session to experience the theory in real time.
The series is designed to include all elements of yin yoga. However each workshop is a balanced unit in and of itself, so they can be done individually just as well. They are suitable for all abilities, though some experience of yoga is recommended.
Elles is a mature yoga teacher who has trained extensively with Sarah Powers, one of the founders of yin yoga. She brings together a thorough understanding of our anatomy and the healing potential of bringing awareness to the body and mind.
