Yin Flow and Yoga Nidra with Steph

Yin Flow & Yoga Nidra class to get you ready for sleep and reduce stress. This weekly yoga practice will nurture and nourish the system on all levels. In class we practice a combination of postures to promote a restful night’s sleep, stretch the deeper yin tissues, strengthen the immune system and soothe the nervous system – bringing balance to body, heart and mind. You will also learn practices that can be used off the mat and in daily life to support you in times of stress or intensity. Such simple yet exquisite practices whereby we can experience deep relaxation and relief from stress, and experience true health, vitality, resilience, and well-being.
What is Yin Flow Yoga?
Yin Flow yoga is a slow, flowing, floor-based Yin class, moving into held postures. This practice invites you to release tension in the body and mind, as you move and then surrender to gravity.
Yin yoga has something to offer everyone. If you’re interested in the physical practice of yoga, you’ll enjoy the added flexibility and joint health you feel. But if it’s the emotional and mental benefits you seek, you’ll also find techniques to increase your mindfulness and decrease your stress. It is a slow-paced style of yoga with mostly floor based postures held for longer periods of time. Yin flow yoga targets the deep (yin) connective tissues of the body: ligaments, tendons, joints, bones and fascia.
Yin and yang yoga styles move energy throughout the body and help improve physical, mental and emotional well-being. But yin yoga offers two components that yang lacks: a focus on stillness and an emphasis on longer, deeper stretching of the tissues that surround your body’s moving parts. While most yang styles move quickly and focus on muscle tissues, yin moves slowly and stretches more deeply into the body, lubricating tight joints and strengthening the connective tissues in your joints.
A perfect complement to the yang styles of yoga and our external yang worlds.
Some of the yin postures are followed by more dynamic (yang)
counter postures to move stagnated chi (energy flow) and to create a balanced and a complete yoga practice as we flow with Yin. One big difference noticed by Yin students is the long-held, passive nature of the postures. This gives time for a deeper journey to unfold. A journey into the meditative aspects of yoga, a bridge to living life mindfully.
What is Yoga Nidra?
All relaxation is good. Some is super. Yoga Nidra is a superb way to reduce stress and improve your health. It’s a practice based on a lucid, sleep-like state of relaxation and focuses specifically on alleviating both the mental and physical manifestations of stress, so you can live a better life.
Yoga Nidra is a technique of total relaxation that empowers you to attain your full potential as a person. Through practicing this powerful relaxation technique, you will be able to succeed in many undertakings in your life that you might not have thought possible. This is because your body is not a machine. It needs rest so that your cells can rejuvenate and be ready again for the next day. Sleep gives the physical body that much-needed rest, but in terms of mental rest, sleep is oftentimes simply insufficient. This is especially true if you have a lot of stress and anxiety in your daily activities. With your mental health compromised, your ability to perform well and succeed in any activity is likewise reduced. It’s due to the fact that the brain is the center of your body’s central nervous system (CNS), and responsible for all of your cognitive abilities.
Yoga Nidra is also called Yogic Sleep because it induces deep relaxation and sleep to promote a person’s well-being and mental health. This in turn empowers a person to bring forth their full potential and increase the chances of excelling in anything they do. Incorporating this deep meditation technique into your life and practicing regularly will bring about a greater sense of restoration and mental willpower in order to feel healthy and happy, and to be fully capable of achieving your goals.
Yin soothes and clams us. It gives inner peace as well as freedom within the body and mind. These are such important aspects for a healthy life and a nice balance both emotionally and mentally. No experience necessary, everybody can participate. You just have to be willing to do something good for yourself.

Dancing Free with Emilie

Dancing Free is a free movement session incorporating somatic techniques.
Dance for your well-being, happiness and mindfulness in these fully guided sessions designed to unleash the natural movement within your body. Often we are clenched and taut with the tension of daily life. If you want to release tension and dance for the fun of dancing – then this is the session for you. The use of somatics and dance can aid us to lead a more authentic and spiritual life.
We will always begin with a relaxing and meditative body scan (one of my favourites!). As we enter a ‘conscious’ state, sessions will lead into guided free movement. No hour will be the same as pre-prepared themes will allow us to explore something new every week. With the addition of some somatic based exercises, we will end with free movement before retiring for a short relaxation.
