Uniting two powerful ways to relax: Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra.
Yin Yoga – This practice involves postures that deeply lengthen muscles and connective tissues encasing joints and all muscle, thereby helping to improve joint mobility and overall flexibility.

In addition, the slow pace of Yin helps to calm the nervous system and provides students with an opportunity to slow down, rest, and revitalise.
Yoga Nidra – The final part of the class is devoted to this unique style of guided meditation, often translated as ‘yogic sleep.’
In Yoga Nidra, students lie comfortably on the floor and are guided in placing awareness on different focal points, including parts of the body, the movement of the breath, and the contents of the imagination. The result is a profoundly restful meditation in which students approach a state similar to sleep while retaining a sense of wakeful awareness.
