Feel stiff in the morning

Feel depleted in energy from your current exercise programme

Feel stressed or anxious
Then you may benefit from regular Yin Yoga practice. Yin offers deeper access to the body targeting connective tissue, fascia and ligaments with the aim of lubricating and protecting the joints.
The class will be lead by Jamie Rylett. A lifelong martial artist, Jamie discovered yoga as the perfect vehicle for correcting imbalances within the body caused by years of Brazilian JiuJitsu training and competition. He quickly realised that the benefits of yoga practice went way beyond the physical and that regular practice brought with it a unique feeling of calmness that carried over into his daily life. Wanting to explore this ancient art further at its source, Jamie set off for India to complete his 200hr multi-style TTC. It was during this time that he discovered Yin yoga and became inspired by the work of Paul Grilley. Immediately upon returning to London he bought every Yin book he could find, then returned to India to complete a 50hr Yin TTC with Maheshwara Manfred Lehner and Shakti Simone Lehner, both of whom are certified teachers under Paul Grilley. After staying in India to teach for Lotus Yoga, Jamie returned to London to complete an additional Yin and Yang 50hr TTC.
Having taught at some of London's top studios, Jamie is now working to spread the Yin yoga gospel and make Yin accessible to everyone, regardless of age, experience or fitness level. '
