Yin yoga focuses on passive floor-based poses held for up to 8 minutes that allow the body to open up gradually while you work with your breath and explore sensation.

Claire Studd

Claire has been practising yoga for almost 20 years and teaching for 9 years.  What started as an antidote to the challenges of working in a senior corporate role in London became an obsession that gradually took over her life.  Inspired by the many positive changes yoga brought to her own life she wanted to pass the teachings on to as many people as possible and completed her initial teacher training with Triyoga in 2011.  After her training she embarked on a four year journey in Europe and Asia, taking additional courses and working at various yoga retreats.  Bikram and Ashtanga Yoga were the mainstay of Claire’s own practice for many years and she maintains a passion for the both the vinyasa method and the joy of sweat! She also embraces more grounding practices such as Yin yoga and completed a 100 hour Yin training last year.  With a passion to always be learning more she is currently studying for her 500 hour Senior Teacher qualification with Jason Crandell.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. IS THIS CLASS FOR ME?

Yin Yoga is a meditative practice of slowly and gently stretching the connective tissue of the body. The slow stretching increases lubrication of the joints, range of motion, energy flow within the body, and decreases tension and chronic pain. By holding poses for extended periods of time (generally 2-5 minutes, mostly seated and lying down poses) we create the opportunity for deep connection with ourselves and our bodies, unwinding long held tensions.

Q. WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

Bring a water bottle and your own mat if you prefer, or you can hire a studio mat for £1.

Q. WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE?

Please arrive 15 minutes before class so you have time to get ready and allow a prompt start.

Q. WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Cotton clothing is more suitable then stretchy synthetic fabrics, but wear what you feel most comfortable in that will allow your body to move and stretch freely. There are changing cubicles at the studio for before and after class.

Q. WHEN SHOULD I EAT?

Try not to eat a heavy meal at least two hours before class, but a light snack is fine if you need.
