A slow-paced yoga style, with poses held for longer – often seated or lying down – Yin yoga has a meditative approach. A goal is inner silence as postures create an interconnection between body and mind. Increase flexibility and strength through poses that work with connective tissues whilst increasing circulation in the joints. No experience necessary.

Peri, post or menopausal… no one knows the experience better than those of us living the (hormonal) highs-and-lows every day. And whilst high-profile campaigns have increased visibility to some extent in recent years, day-to-day activities and support seems patchy and a little ‘secret’.
Join our weekly session for yoga postures to support with muscle and joint pain, improved sleep, managing ‘hot flushes’, and bringing a sense of peace when overwhelm and anxiety flare. Information around nutrition, lifestyle and HRT options will also be available.
Most importantly, there will be space to develop relationship and community with others (stay for lunch in Milk & Honey cafe afterwards if you can!)
