Yin yoga works on the connective tissues of the joints. The Yin yoga postures are done, and held, at a slow relaxed pace, thus enabling connective tissue and, in turn, the joints, to open and rehabilitate. Eventually, this enables the body to function as it should.
It is important for most people’s wellbeing to feel physically strong and healthy. This feeling can be gained by a lightness in the body and freedom of movement in the joints.
Any type of person, in any kind of occupation, will rarely retire as a result of a muscle injury. It will more often than not be a joint problem, ie back, ankle, knee, etc. These problems are the ones that stop people from doing what they want and love to do. Also, as we get older, stiff joints are what makes us stoop and shuffle!
What will Yin Yoga do for me?
If you are young, your joints are probably working as they should! In which case, Yin yoga will keep them working as they should … and more!
If you’re older, and you have any aches and pains – maybe you make that noise your parents used to make when you pull yourself out of the chair - Yin yoga will slowly enable you to stand for longer, correctly and more upright, sit for longer, more comfortably without shuffling around, and sleep better, with more comfort.
All these things will come naturally over time, without any thought.
Like anything that is not used or exercised, your joints eventually become shrink wrapped and the connective tissue shortened. Therefore Yin exercise, which works joints and connective tissue, will keep you more upright and stronger as you get older.
Yin yoga is also a great way for sportspeople, whatever your sport, to aid peak performance.
Your back and joints are your biggest asset, so they need looking after!
If you study other types of yoga, Ashtanga in particular, our instructors Neil Richardson and Vics Lark have found from experience that Yin yoga is invaluable, not just for the reasons already mentioned, but also for opening up the body and the hips especially, allowing you to go further into the postures and deepen your Ashtanga practice.
Yin yoga will be beneficial to all, young and old, so it is never too late to start.

We have made some changes to our class timetable. In particular, Vinyasa Flow yoga and Tai Chi times have changed, and the Monday night primary led Ashtanga yoga has been split into two classes, at 18.00 and 19.30 due to demand.
