Great way to stretch the psoas a major hip flexor muscle. Connecting the upper and lower body, you are using it every day to walk unknowingly. Emotions such as sadness (shutting off) and or shortness of breath with poor posture can tighten the muscle, causing problems in our physical, emotional and thought bodies. Back pain, fatigue and emotional imbalance as some of the indicators.

YIN YOGA

  • Uses long-held, floor-based poses to stimulate and nourish the major energetic channels (meridians) that are housed in the core of the body, strengthening the quality of prana in the body, as well as assisting to mobilise stagnant prana, directly affecting organ health. The sequences and poses used in yin yoga target the 'yin tissues' in the body - tissues which are denser and more internalised in the body such as bones, ligaments, tendons and fascia. Practicing yin yoga assists with developing flexibility in the physical body, whilst at the same time, developing clarity and wakefulness of mind. Yin yoga also creates a 'holding space' to deepen yogic practices such as pranayama and meditation.

Feedback: I have found yin yoga beneficial is the following ways: I've gained more flexibility and have become more open in my heart energy. The universe has gifted me finding you as a teacher. I took up yoga for exercise, improve my flexibility, to find balance and increase energy allowing me to flow. I would recommend Terri as your yoga teacher. September 2015 Wayne Stickel

Feel so much less stressed after being to yin yoga time for being still, opening and being aware of my physical body, emotional body and my busy crazy thoughts. With each breath I become more present, time seems to stand still and class is over and it seems such a short time when in fact it has been 75mins. Feeling grateful, thank you Terri for a wonderful class each week. Namaste... For we are one! One Love! Beautiful music and wonderful knowledge you share... Thank you x September 2015

Shoelace pose: Great  pose for compressing the meridian lines of the Liver, Spleen and Kidney organs and pulling on the outside of the hip along the GallBladder line.  Forwarding forward will pull on the Urinary Bladder meridian line. Physically the hip joints are externally opening. Shoulders can also be internally or externally rotated dependant on the position.
