Yin Yoga


This class is taught by:

Sam Goddard

My first Bikram yoga class was in April 2006. I loved it. My very first class was tough- the challenge, the heat, the discipline, the energy and the 26 postures. I knew I had found something very special. I also knew that one day I would to teach Bikram Yoga. That day is now here. Bikram Yoga is amazing both physically and mentally – the lower back pain that I had suffered for several years has disappeared, my stress levels have eased and I generally feel so much healthier. The most amazing benefit I find from Bikram Yoga, is that no matter what type of class you have, or how you were feeling to begin with, you always feel good after you have worked hard for 90 minutes, through 26 postures and two breathing exercises. I briefly tried other styles of hatha yoga when there was no Bikram studio in Brighton and although I enjoyed it, I realised how many more benefits there are from Bikram Yoga. As soon as CJ’s studio opened, I was straight through the door for the very first class! When the time was right for me, I made the life changing decision to go to Bikram Yoga Teacher Training. I left my career and job as the Area Manager for Sussex within a public sector department to fulfil my dreams of becoming a Bikram Yoga Teacher. This was a huge decision, but definitely the best decision I have ever made. I am honoured to be able to teach Bikram Yoga to you all especially as I know how it will help others get the benefits from this amazing yoga practice. Improving you back pain, joint issues and a whole plethora of body issues.
In our busy, active lives we all have a lot of yang energy around us and need a bit of yin to complement this, provide balance and remain healthy. Yin yoga is a slow, deep practice of yoga that really allows our body to slow down, rejuvenate and release physically, mentally and emotionally - improving inner silence, awareness and reducing stress and anxiety. The postures are passive, mainly on the floor, yet Yin is still challenging! Postures are held for a long period, often 3-5 minutes or more, applying moderate stress to the connective tissues working deep into the bones, tendons, fascia and ligaments. The focus is mainly on hips (where we hold a lot of emotional tension), pelvis, inner thighs and lower spine as well as shoulders. We use props to ensure support and comfort allowing us to relax into the postures, increase circulation to our joints and improve the flow of qi (subtle energy) through our body. . The room is not heated.
Please bring 2 towels or a towel and a blanket to use for padding/support!
