Yin for Stress @ Yoga Hub Camden
We all experience stress from time to time, but when we don’t deal with it is when it starts to become a problem. There are dozens are different ways to manage stress, but if you’ve yet to find your solution join Grace this Saturday for a yoga workshop with a difference. Yin yoga helps the body relax by using props to support the limbs in certain poses.
Sometimes when the mind is stressed, stillness only seems to heighten our awareness of it. Yin yoga can be a challenging practice, but learning to overcome our mental chatter is something we can get better at. It’s an essential skill we can then take off the mat and into the world and our daily lives. You can expect to feel relaxed and grounded, more able to spot and release negativity and unhelpful thought patterns, and more confident in your ability to deal with them in your yoga practice.
Saturday, 18 August from 1pm – 3pm @ YogaHub Camden. Registration is priced at €25 and can be done here
