What's On

Yin Community Yoga 

Welcome to Luxurious Yin Yoga! Join us for an evening of relaxation and rejuvenation as we dive deep into the practice of Yin Yoga. This event is perfect for those looking to unwind and unfurl after a day of work.

Yin yoga works deeply into our body with passive, longer-held poses. It targets the deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues – ligaments, joints, bones, the deep fascia networks of the body.

Join us and indulge in some luxurious self and community care ✨

Equipment supplied, but if you have a your own mat and bolster bring it along.

Tuesday 9 April, 6.30pm to 7.30pm | $12 or bring a friend and pay $6 each
