Welcome to Yinspire
The home of Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Therapeutic Yoga on the Isle of Wight
My Yoga Studio is on the beautiful Isle of Wight at Rowborough – between Ryde and Brading – and hosts both Yin Inspired Yoga and Restorative Yoga with myself and my Yoga Therapy Practice.
Yin Yoga has been my passion over recent years Yin Yoga is a quieter practice, mostly floor based, less focused on exertion, and more focused on working with our lives, minds and bodies as we find them each day – maybe stress, anxiety, disappointments, aches, pains, bad backs, tummies.
My interpretation of Yin Yoga is a warm hearted approach, less about doing, more about softly being. without strife.
My classes major on Yin Yoga, but weave in some classic Hatha Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Pranayama, Mindfulness Meditation and elements of Yoga Therapy.
Much of our lives are Yang – busy, active, energetic, doing, outward. Yin Yoga helps us balance this with the Yin aspects of life – quieter, stable, passive, nurturing, inward, restorative.
Yoga for Stuff – My approach to Yoga is an accessible one, and most of my classes are suitable for dealing with “stuff” – be it physical issues like back, hips, shoulders or knees, or psycho-emotional concerns like anxiety or confidence, as a both a Yoga Teacher and a Yoga Therapist I can normally accommodate health concerns in class.
I am also a Yoga Therapist and offer Private Yoga Therapy Classes, specialising in Stress, Anxiety and Confidence; Back Complaints and Back Care; Rehabilitation and Adaptation; Digestive Health; Pain Conditions.
Yoga Therapy uses Yoga based techniques to promote Health and Well-being – physical, mental and emotional.
Beginners to Yoga are most welcome in my classes, we all started new once. Get in touch if there is anything you need to discuss first
In Person Studio classes, Private Classes and Yoga Therapy are both running normally, with added measures for our safety.
