Who can do Yin yoga?
Yin yoga is subtle, deliberately slow & very accessible for all ages & abilities. Really, we don’t care how the pose looks from the outside, only how it feels for you & the benefits you are enjoying.
This type of yoga is great for anyone who wants to completely relax while also working the deeper tissues of the body.
Yin yoga is a great complement to your other sports & activities because it stimulates healthy, hydrated joints & releases tension & knots.
This yin class is for all levels & abilities; complete beginners are very welcome & will easily be able to follow!

All the mats & materials you could possible need are free to use at Radiant Light Yoga but absolutely feel free to bring your own.
Who can do it?
Firstly, this class is intentionally led at a relaxed & slow pace ensuring it is accessible to everyone. It is specifically sequenced for more mature bodies & there is time to learn about what you are feeling & ask questions.
Secondly, there is no such thing as being good at yoga; it’s not a performance & there are no perfect yoga poses, not in this kind of yoga. There’s only comfort, relaxation & a focus on what you are feeling as you work on what your body needs.
Also, poses are individually varied & adapted to your unique body & ability so it doesn’t matter how flexible you already are. If you work with what you’ve got you will still get all the benefits.
What is a class like?
Based on simple Yin Yoga poses, this is a soft & deeply relaxing sequence of poses that we do sitting & lying on the mat. Therefore, there is no need to get up & down or balance on one leg; we also avoid poses on the knees so it’s ideal if you have issues with your knees.
We use bolsters & blankets to support your body in each long-held pose, making you very comfortable while you work on a particular area of the body. In addition, we hold the pose for 2 – 5 minutes allowing the pose time to work its intense & vital magic on your body.
Furthermore, you are encouraged to listen to your body & enjoy what feels right for you because only you know how it feels. We take the time to focus on feeling the changes in your body after each long-held pose.
What to wear & bring?
It’s a good idea to wear clothes that you are comfortable in & allow you to move. Since you won’t be working up a sweat, you can bring layers to put on in case you feel cold; maybe a long-sleeved top & socks. In Yin Yoga, when the body goes into regenerative mode, you may feel cold.
If you have your own mat you are welcome to bring it. However, all the mats, blankets & yoga equipment you’ll need are available in the class; no need to bring anything but yourself.
Often, it is lovely to have an eye pillow or a scarf for over your eyes at the end of the class as you sink into Savasana.
