Welcome to Essential Wellness And Lifestyle

Yin Yoga

In yin yoga, we aim to apply a small healthy amount of stress to our joints and connective tissue by relaxing muscles and holding poses for an extended period of time. This practice also helps to regulate the body's flow of energy (chi or prana) and also works on the meridians in the body. Yin yoga can be a very calming practice and is perfect for any level of yoga student. 

Benefits of a regular Yin Yoga practice are:
  • Calms and balances the mind and body
  • Reduces stress and anxiety
  • Increases circulation
  • Improves flexibility
  • Releases fascia and improves joint mobility
  • Balances the internal organs and improves the flow of chi or prana

 "I wanted to write to you and let you know how much I’ve been enjoying my Yin Yoga classes with you. After having two children in a relatively short space of time, relocating several times before finding our feet on the Sunshine Coast, and running my own business, my body  and mind were in desperate need of a gentle and effective reset. Your Yin Yoga classes have helped me to find this. The regular lessons with you have quickly grounded me and reconnected my mind and body. Your knowledge of alternatives and supporting props for every position, means that I find a sense of achievement in each class and I can see progress. I look forward to my ‘me time’ with you every week. I leave with my body restored and refreshed and my mind calm and positive. I cannot thank you enough for your patience and kindness. ps I love my relaxation at the end! I always feel so Zen 😊" - Heidi

"Lyn is just the most amazing Yoga teacher! Her yin yoga classes are great for the soul - I come away feeling deeply relaxed but also energised. Lyn personalised her approach for me due to my back injury and within just a few sessions my sciatica disappeared. I can’t recommend her highly enough. We also take our kids (3 & 4 yrs old) to her for a family yoga session once a week and they have the time of their life. They love engaging in her well planned and thoughtful activities, and regularly practice what they have learned during the week. Highly recommended!! - Simon

"Thanx Lyn so much for the lovely gentle and easy to understand yin yoga intro class on Zoom!!
For a relative newbie it was great to be able to participate in my own environment, I could really relax without feeling intimidated (by others watching me be uncoordinated! 😬😁) and still being able to have posture corrected by you personally. 😊" - Anne-marie

"Lyn is an excellent teacher of Yin Yoga. My wife and I had a private class that was so good, I didn't want it to end. She explains the postures clearly and offers marvellous insights into their mechanisms that show a deep understanding and make the class very interesting. The class was calming and would be within the capacity of most people, young and old. The yoga room is light filled and has lovely water views. This was a special experience." - Greg

"I had a wonderful experience at Lyn's beautiful Yoga studio recently. I fully enjoyed the Yin Class and felt nurtured and rejuvenated. Lyn is a great yoga teacher with much to offer students. I highly recommend Yoga with Lyn Russell." - Angela
