About the Event
A one-off session taking participants on a blissful journey through some deeply releasing Yin yoga poses and on to a relaxing and rejuvenating Yoga Nidra ("sleep of the yogis").
The yin part of the session involves longer held physical poses with plenty of use of props and personally tailored options, with restorative poses and gentle movement between the longer held poses. This provides an overall experience of calm, cool yin energy (rather than heat-generating, faster moving yang energy), using Traditional Chinese Medicine meridians, and allowing the fascia (connective tissues wrapping our organs and muscles) to release.
The nidra part of the session is not a physical practice, just involving finding a comfortable place to find stillness - again props are always an option - and allowing the body to completely rest while the mind follows the nidra technique into an effortless state of complete "non-doing".
No previous yoga or yoga nidra experience needed. All are welcome.
