how to support a hyper-mobile student in a yin yoga class

Should Yin-yoga be all passive stretching? Is passive stretching bad? Why are there various opinions on this subject? Because we have varying human bodies! In this workshop we explore the natural range of tissue types, from our vikings, to our dancers and every one in-between. Prone to over stretching and injury our hyper-mobile students will need our support and attention more than we may realise!

Yin literally changed her life (and her surfing!), and she is now on a mission to get the world doing Yin though her classes and 50-hour further training Yin course.
