Shin Yoga Early Evening Retreat

  • SOUL CENTRE 18 Huia Road Auckland, Auckland, 0604 New Zealand (map)

Join us for a 2 hour retreat away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We will spend 2 hours unwinding, slowing down, going inwards and spiraling out any tensions, and worries.

Finishing with a deep and rejuvenating relaxation nidra, and a warm cup of chai and delicious organic snacks from Willa's kitchen.

SHIN YOGA was born out of the need for a different type of Yoga. One that respects the body as profound wisdom, one that encourages embodiment, breath as spirit and living as being!

Shin Yoga is "sensing your body, breath and movement. It is a practice of bringing consciousness to each moment of moving" through yoga postures, pranayama and meditation. (Amy Matthews)

Shin Yoga is becoming the fluid, following the waves forms, recognising the blocks and releasing them.
"The universe consists entirely of waves of motion which spring from stillness and return to stillness" Walter Russel (American Polymath)



Yoga connects us to our centre, helping us find softness and fluidity in the places we are rigid. As we gain flexibility on our mats, we are also reminded to create space for more fluidity—and less rigidity—in our daily lives.

As we grow stronger in our ability to simultaneously open and support ourselves, we develop an ability to align instead of a determination to reach a finished alignment.

Drawing on the developmental postures of Shin Somatics, Skinner Releasing principles, Body Mind Centering, Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy and somatic practice Shin Yoga focuses on opening and lengthening the body and quietening the mind. Based on the founding principle of Yoga – to create balance - we begin with balancing the nervous system and endocrine system, using asanas and pranayama inspired for healing and inner reflection.
Help manage stress, learn to wind down and create a space to just BE in your body. This is a transformative practice.

Suitable for those new to yoga, or for long-time yogis needing a more embodied gentle practice. Fabulous for those recovering from illness or injury, those in the later stages of the life cycle, pregnancy or post-natal mums or those in relax mode. Shin Yoga moves gently through the postures with a focus on healing, restoration and revitalisation.

Shin Yoga moves towards deep and profound relaxation in body, mind and spirit.
