About The Happy Cat Yoga

About me:

My name is Marsine and I have been practicing different types of Yoga for many years.

I fell in love with “Yin Yoga” during COVID lockdown when I was struggling with injuries and poor mental health.

I discovered that Yin is a powerful healer and it got me through a very difficult time in my life.

My practice now is about giving myself time for selfcare and nourishment, so that I can feel a sense of wellness and ease in my body and mind.

Inspired by one of my own Yoga teachers, I finally found the courage to become a Yoga teacher. Yoga really did change my life and I felt a powerful calling to bring it to my local community.

And that is how Happy Cat Yoga was born.

About Yin Yoga:

I describe Yin Yoga as a “medicine” that works on many different levels…your mind, your body, your soul.

I believe that Yin Yoga meets you “where you are” and heals you in the areas of your life that you need it most.

Yin Yoga is for everybody - and all abilities and ages (over 16) are welcome to attend my classes.

First of all, know that my teaching style is very gentle and nurturing. 

Yin Yoga is a slow, soothing and passive style of yoga. Each pose is either seated or lying on the ground (on a mat). We use bolsters and blocks to support your body and we let gravity do its work.

You don’t need any level of physical strength or fitness for Yin Yoga and my classes are designed to provide options for people with all abilities and body types. 

My motto is: “different bodies, different rules”. 

Yin yoga is meditative and slowly builds your willpower and mental resilience - we hold the poses for 2-5 minutes so that we reach the deep connective tissues, bones, joints, fascia, and ligaments in the body. 

The stretches can feel quite strong and challenging but I will guide you and help adjust the positions for you, and I will remind you to listen to your body and do what is right for you. 

Yin Yoga works on stimulating different acupressure points from Traditional Chinese Medicine.

The more we work our fascial system and deep tissues, the less dense and tight our bodies become as we age. Movement and stretching in Yin Yoga will hydrate connective tissues in your body and literally help slow the aging process.

After a class people tend to feel more released, relaxed and it can improve your quality of sleep. 

If you do Yin Yoga consistently you will notice the long term physical benefits, finding more ease in your body and mind.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions at all.

Much love,

Marsine xx
