“I feel so lucky to have discovered your yoga classes. I have searched a long time to find the right class and I have never experienced a class quite like yours. You have a unique way of creating an energising, relaxing and inspiring class each week. The chakra workshop was the most amazing class I have ever attended, I literally felt blissful afterward” Hannah, Brighton
14th September, 2-5pm, at Revitalise, Brighton.
An afternoon of slowing down, softening in to the moment and letting the tensions of the week melt away.
Yin Yoga is slow yoga, poses will be held for a few minutes to gently allow the deeper connective tissues of the body, such as the ligaments, to become lubricated, strong and increase mobility. These gently held poses help to stimulate Chi to flow through the energy lines of our body helping to guide ourselves back to balance.
Yoga Nidra is a form of guided relaxation lying down. It’s like an extended Savasana that helps to slow down your brain waves to take you to that state between being awake and sleep, in this dreamy state our nervous system can rebalance, our body can repair, our creativity can flow and we can experience true rest.

Saturday 13th October 10.30am – 1.30pm at the Yoga Garden, nr Horsham
Looking forward to being back at the beautiful Yoga Garden near Horsham to nourish ourselves this Autumn time.
In Chinese medicine the Autumn is a time to nourish the Lung energy. This helps us to have strong physical vitality, a powerful voice, strong immunity, bright skin and a healthy sense of self worth. It’s also about being able to let go, deal with change and go with the flow of life, being able to find the beauty of each moment.
We’ll be exploring this and other energetic aspects of this change in season.
Yin is a slow practice where poses are held from 3 – 20 minutes. This helps to stimulate and release our deep connective tissues. As we give a gentle stress to different areas of our body we also stimulate our meridian lines and our parasympathetic nervous system which helps us to feel at ease in a busy world. You can expect meditation, pranayama and Yoga Nidra too.
The practice is for all levels.
£35 advance bookings/ £40 on the day. Booking will be via the Yoga Garden website; https://www.the-yoga-garden.co.uk/workshops

Feedback from a yin workshop:
“Just to say: this was the slowest, deepest and physically effortless Yoga workshop ever. I felt exquisitely calm all day Sunday – in fact, the sense of quiet seemed to deepen even more. What a miraculous process!” Ruth
“Today more than at any other time in the history of humanity, people in the West are facing tensions & stresses beyond their control….Yoga, the oldest science of life, can teach you to bring stress under control – not only on a physical level, but on mental and spiritual levels too.” – Swami Vishnu Devananda (India)

How To Centre Yourself
A useful tool in times of stress.
1. Feel your connection to the earth, bring awareness to your feet and sitting bones, if you are seated. Straighten your spine as if pulling energy up from the earth right up to the crown of your head.
2. Breathe long slow deep belly breaths. Make the out breath longer and as you exhale let go.
3. Relax the middle line of your body; between your eye brows, your mouth, tongue, jaw and finally your belly.
