Self-Care Sunday Yin Yoga Workshop
In this autumn-themed workshop, the goal is to slow down and switch off from the busy day-to-day routine, finding some time for self-care. As well as doing long-held, floor-based postures from yin yoga, we will work with myofascial release techniques and yoga nidra to help you leave the workshop feeling relaxed and restored.
Join us for a yin workshop on Sunday 08 October, 2-4:30pm, led by Rebecca Law. You can join the workshop in person at Lumi Power Yoga or in-person via Zoom.
The objectives of this workshop are to:
Release tension in the body via a sequence of long-held, floor-based postures (up to 5 minutes). We will use props (including bricks, blankets and straps) to find the unique level of support required for you to get your best stretch
To supplement the physical postures, we will work with tennis balls to release muscular and myofascial tension - think of this as an opportunity for some self massage!
Following the autumn-themed yin sequence, we will snuggle up and settle into a Yoga Nidra practice, a form of yogic sleep. The goal is to cultivate a deep state of physical and emotional relaxation.
Using yin yoga philosophy as our lens, we will reflect on the importance of rest to balance out the fast pace of our hectic day-to-day lives.
Props we'll be using include:
Tennis balls (or apples/potatoes, if you're joining from home)
If you're joining the workshop from home and don't have these props to hand, you can get creative with whatever materials you have available. See our blog on building a home practice for ideas about how you can substitute props.

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.
Rebecca's goal is to empower students, both physically and mentally, via their yoga practice. She is a firm believer that if you can breathe, you can practice yoga. She encourages yogis to let go of the need to be 'perfect' in favour of developing a compassionate practice that respects and nourishes the body – and the South Asian roots of the yoga teachings and traditions – in an authentic and accessible way.
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.
