Yin and Pin Sessions

Are you tired? Stressed? Experiencing tight muscles? Overthinking? Or maybe just looking to find some balance?

Time to reset and restore. Yin and Pin merges two of the most ancient Eastern modalities: Acupuncture and Yoga, both bring balance to your life and enhance your wellbeing.

Deep Relaxation: promotes deep relaxation and activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which induces a state of calm and rest allowing for deeper healing and rejuvenation.

Energy Balance: enhances the overall balance and harmonisation of the body's energy system.

Enhanced Circulation: enhances circulation, oxygenation, and nutrient supply to various organs and tissues, supporting optimal function and healing.

More about Yin & Pin workshops

This low-cost, double-modality, wellness session will run over 1.5 hours. All you need to do is commit and turn up in comfy clothes and a blanket. Book with a friend and save, or book yourself a series pass for all 3 sessions within a series and save.

In a group of limited numbers, you will start by engaging your body deeply with gentle yin-style yoga for half an hour, Following this, you will make yourself comfy with your mat and blocks/blankets (provided by us) and have five acupuncture needles carefully and gently placed at special acupuncture points to reinforce and deepen the yoga work. During the acupuncture and for the next half an hour the yoga instructors will carry you through a restorative, calming, and deeply relaxing body scan meditation and Yoga Nidra.​ This is a beautiful, shared and safe space for healing and the perfect way to regularly anchor back into your best self for the season.


About the acupuncture

The five acupuncture points used during the Yin and Pin session are selected to access four special nerve locations on the hands, feet, and head; They are found to regulate and calm the parasympathetic nervous system. The traditional understanding of these ancient points is in their ability to settle the heart-mind axis and regulate the qi (chee) energy.

The acupuncture given in this special setting offers a natural balancing influence on the body. They work by either encouraging lightness in mood, in support of people struggling with daily heaviness, or by anchoring and calming people who may be experiencing anxiety and struggle to quietly settle within themselves.

All the acupuncture points for Yin and Pin are entirely safe and not generally painful. During the session (after the needles have been placed), the acupuncturist will be available and on hand for ongoing support if any discomfort or concerns arise. However, acupuncture for the purpose of emotional regulation and nervous system relaxation is thankfully a very enjoyable experience.
