1.30 to 4.30pm
MoreYoga & Yoga Evolved present GIN YIN (workshop & gin distillery experience)
Many of us lead fast-paced, demanding and intensely stressful life-styles. Gin Yin combines two of the great ways to relax, Yin Yoga and high quality gin! A restorative Yin workshop with a touch of gin to help slow things down, relax and unwind.
In this workshop, we will look at a number of classic Yin poses designed to help to open up the body and calm the mind, alleviating anxiety and reducing stress. 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!
We will continue the gin experience at local micro-gin distillery Half Hitch, where you’ll learn more about the gin that we tried earlier including production techniques and a bit of history about Camden’s centuries long love affair with gin. We’ll then kick back, relax and enjoy a well-earned gin and tonic – a chance to connect with fellow MoreYogis and make new friends!
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!
PLEASE NOTE: 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 we are happy to provide non-alcoholic alternatives, if requested in advance.
