Self-Care Saturday Yin Yoga Workshop
It's not always easy to find time for ourselves. Time to take care of ourselves. Time to rest, relax and restore. There's no better time to do that then now, as we transition from summer to fall. And there's no better way to do that than a yin workshop.
It is the perfect time to draw energy inward, lending us time to pause, reflect, take stock of and process what came of the summer growing season.
Join us for a yin workshop on Saturday 15 October, 2-4pm, led by Virginie Firth. You can join the workshop in person at Lumi Power Yoga or in-person via Zoom.
During the workshop you will:
Find time to pause, slow down and nurture yourself
Re-balance in the busyness we are so used to
Release physical and mental tension
Breathing (pranayama) exercises to calm and still the body and mind
An extended yin practise where you will enjoy supported poses for between 3-7 minutes
Use of props to help support and release your own unique body so you can find stillness and comfort in each pose
Finish with a long and lingering surrender in Savasana to relax your entire nervous system

I've never tried yin before, is the workshop suitable for all levels?
It doesn't matter if you're an experienced yin practitioner or beginner, this workshop is suitable for everyone.
Virginie started her yoga journey out of joyful curiosity. Her practice soon became a time of deep, meaningful and powerful connections to her body, mind, heart and the present moment. Yoga enables her to create space for new possibilities, and to reach and connect outwards through assisting and teaching.
She qualified as a Lumi yoga teacher and discovered that the wonderful "yang" of vinyasa flow can be balanced with a calmer, restorative "yin" practice. She is passionate about the power of yin practice and the benefits it can bring.
