Yin & Mindfulness
Hugh’s Yin and Mindfulness classes: incorporates Chinese Medicine and Mindfulness practice. He will focus on stimulating the body’s deep connective tissues targeting Chinese Medicine meridians to allow Qi (energy) to flow clearing blockages/stagnation. Cultivating healing, balance and nourishment physically, mentally and emotionally. Mindfulness is practiced whilst in the long stays in Yin poses 3-5mins, in order for cultivation of self-awareness.
Slow flow is suitable for all levels, with options and adaptations provided for all challenging poses. Like vinyasa, movement follows breath, however poses are held longer. This allows one to mindfully map and safely align the body, and then sit deeper into the pose. This practice is a non-judgmental and nurturing way to understand, accept and explore individual limitations and to challenge and expand comfort zones. The slower pace of Slow Flow, allows time for reflection and deeper understanding of self, before rushing to the next pose. In this space, a connection with self, the mind, the koshas (bodies), breath and spirit can be cultivated and yoked. In mindful reflection, a light is shone on patterns of thought and reaction, providing valuable insights for life on and off the mat.
