YIN

ABOUT YIN WITH DIVINE FLOW

We like to say YIN is everyone’s best friend. A practice that offers tremendous space for rest and renewal. Yin encourages tissue resiliency, improves joint mobility and helps to reduce stress from daily life.

 

You will find yourself in stationery held poses during our 60min class. Poses can range from 3-7 minute holds meanwhile helping you to tap into the parasympathetic nervous system and create balance and ease. The act of carefully taking a posture and tending to your body’s unique set of needs for the duration of the hold is a form of self-care and meditation.

What are the benefits of YIN?

Yin offers a much deeper access to the body and mind. During each pose we work on positively manipulating the connective tissues. Connective tissue responds best to a slow, steady load, with the aim to make the body a little longer and stronger.

Yin is also good if you are feeling an imbalance in your energy. Really tired? Or if you have too much energy and you are overstimulated Yin is a great practice to cultivate balance and release physical and mental tension.

Is YIN right for me?

This is a class that absolutely everyone can benefit from. If you are looking to reduce stress or anxiety we work directly with the nervous system. Are you keen to gain more flexibility?

This class is one of the most popular classes for stiff bodies in all age groups. We encourage everyone to try this class. Come and rest your body here.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A YIN CLASS WITH DIVINE FLOW?

Arrive to unwind. Collect your props that are needed for this class and set up your space whilst awaiting your teacher to guide you. This 60min class is an opportunity to deepen your meditation practice in a calm environment.

 

During the evening we keep the lights down low and practice by candlelight this helps to set you up for deep rest before bed. During the day we also provide optional eye silk pillows for you to use.

Laural Furze

Laural’s journey with yoga began 10 years ago when her now husband introduced her to the Asana practice.

What started as an initial form of physical exercise eventually expanded beyond the physical leading to a deeper understanding of herself.

Yoga has since been a consistent ritual in Laural’s life and continues to help her feel more at home within herself, while also giving her tools to help navigate the challenges that come along with everyday life.

Laural has worked in the fitness industry as a personal trainer, group fitness coach and nutrition coach for the past 6 year, giving her vital education and an understanding of human anatomy while also exploring human behaviour and mindset through helping others on their health and fitness journey.

Finally after many years of ignoring the call to teach the opportunity and timing aligned to dive deep into becoming a yoga teacher and sharing this wonderful practice with others.

Laural also weaves her background in music through her yoga classes, often incorporating crystal sound bowls, vocals and mantras to help students drop into a deeper state of relaxation and self enquiry.
