Mixed ability Vinyasa Flow Yoga and Yin Yoga. Vinyasa Flow is a sequence of asanas (postures) which flow from one to the other, co-ordinating breath with movement. Improves balance, posture, strength, stamina, flexibility as well as many other benefits. Yin Yoga is usually floor-based, Postures are held for a few minutes. It targets connective tissue and fascia which increases the circulation around the joints which as we get older is hugely beneficial. It also increases flexibility and although it can be challenging it quietens the mind allowing you to observe restrictions in your body and enter a meditative state creating an inner peace and calm.
