Yin Yoga & Gong Bath with Alex Belcourt and Pauline McCrann
Saturday 7th April 2.30-5pm. Cost £35
Join Alex and Pauline for a journey through yoga and sound. Yin Yoga involves long, slow holds of floor postures which stimulate the connective tissues in the body, untying knots of tension and relieving physical and mental stress. The Gong has been used for thousands of years, and is very powerful for relaxation, for relieving stress and fatigue, along with many other conditions in our busy lives, which can often lead to the lack of balance and harmony in the body. You do not need to have any prior experience of either yin yoga or sound healing to participate in this workshop.
