BOOK WINTER SOLSTICE
Yin, Ritual + Meditation
Winter Solstice marks the shortest day of the year. It is traditionally a time to celebrate, give thanks and take time for inner renewal. When we flow through life, observing the natural cycles, we become attuned with nature. We can start to plant out seeds and put our dreams in place for spring.
Winter Solstice with Kat
Winter is the most Yin season. It’s the perfect time to snuggle in for a yin practice with the cooler climate and shorter days. Celebrate Winter Solstice with Kat as she takes you on a journey through yin, ritual and meditation. Over the two-hour experience, Kat will gently guide you into a space for self-reflection whilst you marinade in the yin shapes. Supported by seasonal essential oils, soothing music and finishing with a guided visualisation, you will drift away feeling nourished.
If you love Yin Yoga and energetic philosophy, this workshop won’t disappoint. It is beginner-friendly as well, and everyone is welcome.
What you will need: Yoga mat, bolster or cushion, yoga block, blanket and water. (Bolsters and blocks available at The Studio if you do not have your own)
11 am – 12:15 pm

Join me for a four-week series at Twisting Peacock Yoga – Intro to Yin. I’ll be breaking down the basics of Yin Yoga is an easy and down to earth way. You will have the chance to explore, play and see what works for you.
Week 1 – Intro to Yin
In the first week, we will go through the how’s, what’s and why’s behind the physical theory of practising Yin. In each shape we’ll observe:
- Target areas
- Connect with ‘sensation.’
- Be fascinated by fascia
- Pay attention to our skeletal variations
Week 2 – The Archetypes
For week two, we explore the pose archetypes/families developed by Yin’s founder Paul Grilley. It’s also time for a prop party! Props are not a weakness and can assist in our shapes. We’ll use blocks, bolsters, straps, blankets and the wall.
Week 3 – Prop Party!
For week three, it’s also time for a prop party! Props are not a weakness and can assist in our shapes. We’ll use blocks, bolsters, straps, blankets and the wall to show you how great props can be. They are all about helping us to stay awhile with less effort.
Week 4 – The Energy Aspect
To finish off the series, we will explore the more esoteric layers of Yin. I’ll share how energy shifts & changes & how the Yin shapes can assist in directing the flow.
- Introduction to the Meridians lines
- Why energy is interesting & important
- Observe the shifts within yourself
