Yin Yoga – Neck & Shoulders
Saturday 12th November 2022, 2.00pm – 4:00pm
Felda Gym, Dundalk, Co.Louth
In Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, there are 5 elements: fire, earth, wood, water, and metal. Autumn is the season of the metal element and the Lungs and Large intestine are the organs associated with this element.
So in this session we will target both the physical and emotional aspects of Autumn.
☯️ Physically, the meridian lines of the lungs and large intenstine are located in the upper body so our focus will be on the neck, shoulders and upper back.
☯️ Emotionally, the Lungs are associated with sadness, sorrow and grief and the Large Intestine is associated with letting go, both physically and mentally.
Just like the trees let go of their leaves in autumn, to create compost for the next spring and move forward to the next cycle, we too will focus throughout this session on letting go of what we don’t need in order to move forwards.
What can we let go of?
🔆 Unhelpful patterns of behaviour like doing too much, checking social media too often, not enough self care…
🔆 Possessions, we often have too much and buy things we don’t need. Can we reduce?
🔆 Thoughts. Such as a strong focus on the negative, trying to control things, feeling not good enough, comparing our selves to others.
🔆 Thinking we have to be happy all the time.
🔆 Regrets – framing things as “failure” when it didn’t come out how we hoped or wanted.
We will combine yin yoga postures with meditation, breath work and journaling.

My inspiration for this session is to provide you with an opportunity to slow down and reset bringing balance back to the body, mind and soul.
My sessions are always informative (I have 10+ years experience teaching), suitable for all abilities (I offer modifications) and light hearted (I like to have fun!)
Carve out and claim the time to care for yourself & kindle your own fire

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q.1 Do I need to have yoga experience or great flexibility?
No. Yin yoga is a slow paced form of yoga and most of the stretches will be done seated or in a supine position. I offer lots of modifications to suit all abilities.
Q.2 What should I wear?
Something that is warm and comfy. As the pace is slow you won’t be generating much heat. The room is cosy however!
Q.3 What should I bring?
I provide everything you will need in terms of equipment however if you would like to bring your own mat, please do or a blanket for relaxatioin.
Q.4 How do I get there?
