SUE POPE (200 RYT Yin Yoga – Yinspiration)

Yoga Alliance

I’ve practiced yoga on and off for over 15 years while raising my family.

In 2012 I discovered Yin Yoga and fell in love with it.  This led me to complete my teacher training in 2013.

Yin has given me a deeper understanding of body awareness and the importance of honouring the fact that every body is different.  It’s not how the pose looks, but how it feels!

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is suitable for all levels and body types.

Postures are mainly seated or lying on the floor and are held for 3-5 minutes. This allows the muscles to relax, enabling a deeper stretch to work the connective tissue/fascia of the body, especially around the joints.

This gentle approach releases tension and calms the mind creating a feeling of deep relaxation.
