Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is an invitation to let these tired bodies and minds rest. Slowing down to receive the breath and using deeply nourishing and nervous system resetting postures to release tension in the body, mind and heart. As we give ourselves permission to slow down we begin to feel what is really happening in each moment and learn to relax into each pose using our breath to soften and release tension. Lani will guide you on a journey through the body into the Heart as together we create a gentle space of exploration and compassion.

“We don’t use the body to get into the pose, we use the pose to get into the body” ~ Bernie Clark

This is a chance to drop very deeply through the body into the Heart, to reset your often frazzled nervous system and offer a safe haven for whatever it is that is moving through you right now.

Or book in for a private 1:1 Yin Yoga session with Lani where you’ll have your own special sequence created to nurture, restore, re-balance.

Using physical poses held for a little longer we give space for the body, mind and heart to release stress and tension often stored in the deeper layers of the connective tissue & mental & emotional bodies. Letting go the need to arrive anywhere we allow ourselves to unravel in our own time and way flooding our entire system with compassion, kindness, gentleness and self-acceptance.

We rest between each pose so we can become aware of what is it that we’re experiencing right now, and to observe the beautiful effects of fresh qi moving throughout us. For me yin is the embodiment of slowing down and listening from the inside out – the way yoga was always intended to be practiced.

Benefits of Yin Yoga:

  • Calms and balances the mind and body.
  • Supports the regulation of the autonomic nervous system (rest, digest & social engagement).
  • Reduces stress and anxiety.
  • Increases circulation.
  • Improves flexibility.
  • Releases fascia and improves joint mobility.
  • Balances the internal organs and improves the flow of chi or prana.

Embracing life in all its beautiful humanness Lani will gently guide you on a journey through the body into the Heart. All classes are infused with a touch of mysticism blending classical yoga, mindfulness and somatic practices to encourage you to explore the mind body connection, to feel each movement from within, to breathe, to accept, to let go and to feel free within the body.

In a culture that often values outcomes and doing and constant movement Yin Yoga provides an opportunity to slow down, reset and reconnect bringing balance and a sense of being at home within ourself.

In a public class you’ll experience the magic of a group journeying collectively into the heart space. And in a private or 1: 1 session you can ask questions and receive a practice tailored for your needs. Either way allow Lani to create a beautiful space for you to experience the joy of slowing down and tuning in.
