In Yoga, the body, breath and mind are seen as a union of these multi-dimensional aspects of each and every human being. The system and various techniques of Yoga cultivate the experience of that union, leading to greater integration of being, internal peacefulness, and clarity of the mind. It is a system that is designed to cultivate health and happiness, and a greater sense of self-awareness and higher consciousness.
Yoga cultivates health and wellbeing (physical, emotional, mental and social) through the regular practice of a range of many different techniques, including postures and movement, breath awareness and breathing exercises, relaxation and concentration, self-inquiry and meditation.

Many of us are familiar with the terms of Yang and Yin, movement and stillness, stress and relaxation or even energy and lethargy. In this fast paced world where we continue to grow and develop ourselves, our careers, our relationships and our lives, we often spend most of our days in our Yang or stress state and very little taking the time to find space for Yin and relaxation.
Restorative Yoga is a long, slow and deep variation to complement your daily life and yoga practice. Guided through an hour of relaxation, using props to bring you into supported bliss where you de-stress and rejuvenate. This provides a deeper opening within the physical body and the opportunity to challenge your mind to find stillness through following, noticing and observing the shifting of energy within the body.
We specialise in Yin Yoga at Inna Essence. A Yin Yoga class stretches and targets both the deep connective tissues between the muscles, and the fascia throughout the body. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility as the postures stretch and exercise the bone and joints. It also helps to regulate the body’s flow of energy.
A slow, long stretching class where you get a chance to quiet that noisy mind and release tight connective tissues safely. Great for flexibility, focus and improving breathing.
Morning Yin wakes up the body & removes excess connective tissue that builds in the stillness of the body over night. Moving the Chi energy through & removing blockages.
Evening Yin is about reversing the effects of the day on your body and preparing it for rest. Allows for your spirit to rest in your heart.
