International Yoga Day, celebrating by sharing a yin yoga class with these wonderful yogis, the view from my round yoga mat! Heart opening with a rolled blanket or bolster under the thoracic spine. Legs straight or in Butterfly pose. Hold for 3-5 minutes

Cheeky Unjay (@unjay1967) playing beautiful music for savasana for all the International Yoga Day activities last weekend, and then guiding everyone into a deeply restorative Yoga Nidra session.

Come and join us again at the new upstairs studio #TheLoft @TheYogaCentre on Saturday 22/7/17 - Unjay and I will be running a Explore Yin Yoga and the Chakras 2 hour workshop combing sound, mantra, yin yoga, discussion and meditation.

Blessed to have such a lovely group of keen yogis celebrate International yoga Day with me at The Yoga Centre's brand new upstairs studio "The Loft". This is Low Dragon Pose, a yin yoga pose to deeply stretch the hip flexors and quads.
Hold for 3-5 minutes each side, breath deep and get as comfy as you can with blankets under the knees, blocks or bolsters to support the body.
