Writing is one way of releasing emotion that we hold in our bodies and is a great companion practice to Yin Yoga.
Yin Yoga is slow paced style where the postures are held for longer periods of time to create a moderate stress on the connective tissues of the body with the aim to improve circulation, joint health and flexibility. We use bolsters and blocks for support to encourage a deep physical surrender. This slow approach is inherently meditative and encourages quiet self reflection, self compassion and relaxation.
With Yin Yoga we lay the foundation of openness in our bodies to let held emotions arise and then we journal with writing prompts. These prompts are designed to guide and support, allow for connection, reflection and sharing of writing, if desired.  
This session is suitable for all as no experience with yoga or writing is necessary. Please bring a willingness to participate, your favourite pen, a journal and a water bottle. Please dress in layers for your comfort as the studio will be regular room temperature.
If you have any questions about the session or are wondering whether this offering is suitable for you, please email thenesthotyoga@gmail.com.
