Yin Yoga has become one of the most popular approaches to yoga as a deep antidote and personal support for body, breath and mind within today’s stressful, fatigued and goal-orientated world, and as an essential balance to a dynamic, muscular yoga asana practice.
Initially informed and stimulated by yin yoga studies with international teachers Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers, during the last 20 years of his 30+ years of yoga study, practice and teaching, Simon has researched, developed and refined the ultimate approach to cultivating yin yoga’s deeply effective physical, energetic and psycho-spiritual benefits. Simon emphasises an intelligent, anatomically-sound approach, with particular reference to the myofascial body, joint care, the energy (or subtle) body, and the incorporation of pranayama and meditation within the yin practice. Simon’s multi-faceted approach is profoundly restorative, revitalising and reintegrative, promoting health and healing at a cellular level.
