GIN YIN - Yin Yoga & Gin Tasting Experience
Time & Location
About the Event
Gin Yin combines two of the great ways to relax, Yin Yoga and high quality gin! Enjoy a fun Gin tasting experience where you will be guided through sampling some exciting Gins & Gin cocktails, followed by wonderfully stretchy outdoor Yin yoga session (during which you can enjoy your favourite G&T) to help slow things down, relax and feel the summer festival vibes.
Yin Yoga offers deeper access to the body targeting connective tissue, fascia and ligaments with the aim of lubricating and protecting the joints. In order to target these Yin tissues we must first learn to relax the surrounding muscles. A small amount of alcohol may help to facilitate a sense of calm (in some people), in turn this may help you to achieve the physiological state required to relax more into the poses and achieve the maximum benefit from the practice. You will leave this workshop feeling grounded and revitalised and maybe with a new appreciation for gin!
Gin is an excellent low calorie choice and is made from juniper berries and other natural botanicals which are full of antioxidants and can help fight illness, improve circulation, reduce bloating and fluid retention and may help keep you wrinkle free – when drunk in moderation, of course. In fact, gin originates from the Middle Ages where it was first developed as a form of herbal medicine!
It is not compulsory to consume gin to be able to partake in the workshop. You will still benefit from this without the aid of alcohol and I am happy to provide non-alcoholic alternatives, if requested in advance.
Please let me know if you have any allergies or intolerances.
This will be an outdoors event (weather permitting) so please dress accordingly. Please also bring your own mat and blanket.
