Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra – 5.30pm
November 17, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:30pm on Sunday, repeating until April 5, 2020
Yin yoga is a deeply nourishing practice that works from a place of calm and surrender.
Postures are floor based and held for longer periods of time with the support of props, where we focus on finding a deep sense of stillness.
We target the deeper layers of the body – the connective tissue, joints, fascia and bones, allowing a freer flow of energy throughout the body. In a Yin class we breathe more, we rest deeper and we let go of tension and tightness.
Yoga Nidra is a relaxation practice often performed whilst lying in Savasana on the floor or in a comfortable seat.
It is a systematic form of guided relaxation that uses the whole body as a focus of awareness.
It quietens the mind and releases physical tension in the body, aiming to bring about a state of balance by leaving us feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
