What is Restorative Yin Yoga?

Restorative Yin Yoga is a deeply relaxing and restorative style of yoga that focuses on longer holds of gentle poses. The goal of restorative yin is to calm the nervous system, allow the body to completely relax and release tension, and promote healing.

The sustainable gentle poses allow connective tissues like tendons and fascia to safely stretch and relax. The long hold times also give the nervous system a chance to calm down from its habitual state of fight- -to-flight. This makes restorative yin an excellent way to manage stress.

What to Expect in Class?

A Restorative Yin class is a very quiet, meditative practice. Most poses are done on the floor supported by a variety of props like blankets, bolsters and blocks to ensure maximum comfort.

Every class starts with pranayama, which is the yoga practice of controlling the breath through different techniques. You will then be guided through different poses, which you can expect to hold for 3-5 minutes. At the end of each session, there will be a guided meditation followed by spending time in a final resting pose.

The overall pace is extremely slow and gentle, allowing you to turn inward and focus on your breath while body realeases tension.

After class expect to feel deeply relaxed yet invigorated. The effects of restorative yin are both physically and mentally calming and you should feel a sense of peace after your session.

Who is Yoga for?

Yoga is for everyone. No matter your age, fitness level, or background, there is a form of yoga suitable for you.

Restorative Yin Yoga sessions are led by Mrs. Amani Leslie Msc, a qualified education professional and 200 hours registered yoga teacher (RYT) with the Yoga Alliance.

Amani combines her in-depth knowlwdge of biological sciences with her Master's Degree in Education and her love for yoga to bring you a deeply informed and holistic practice that benefits mind and body.
