ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Yin yoga works on the 5-elements of nature as understood in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is a deeply focused and facilitated practice where you drop inwards to feel and release deep tensions held within. Through the process, as you still the mind and let go, you will experience greater clarity and a deeper feeling of inner peace, thereby enhancing your general sense of well-being and vitality.
As nature all around us is going through its natural process of change, all peoples who live from the earth instinctively know that the ‘nature’ within them follows the same patterns. Humans go through the cycle of seasons within themselves; the elements are recreated within us. What is happening outside is also happening within us all. Therefore at each season as there is a change of the energies, it is really beneficial for us to tune in and align to these changes.
Winter is a time to hibernate, to go deep within ourselves to conserve our essence until the spring. It is not a time of waste and extravagant behaviour. It is a time to sit in stillness and deeply reflect on who you are, where you have come from, and where you are going in the world before you re-emerge to sow new seeds in spring.
Winter relates to the Water Element, so we focus on postures that relate to the Kidney and Bladder meridians, along with intention yoga nidra to bring a greater fluidity and flow to life.
In the season of Winter, problems in the Water element can be experienced as brittleness of the joints, dryness and thirst, frequent or infrequent urination, lack of flow in thought processes and emotions, along with feelings of fear and being overwhelmed.
Attending this workshop you will experience and learn practices you can take away to support your health and well-being in Winter.

“Jane’s Yin Yoga Workshops offer a deep connection with not only yourself, but the season. They allow contemplation, opening and deep relaxation. A melding of the mind, body, spirit and environment. For me, they have become anchor points in the busyness of the year”. Lisa E.
“The wonderfully nurturing Yin Workshops with Jane are perfect for tuning in to the energy of the season, and my own desires and needs. Jane creates such a safe and reassuring environment in which to really let go of the external and completely nourish body, mind and soul. A quarterly treat!” Rachel
