Yin Yoga 45 minutes
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. Students hold these poses between 2 to 6 minutes each, allowing ample time for deep-seated patterns of tension in the body to begin to release. In addition, the slow pace of Yin helps to calm the nervous system and provides students with an opportunity to slow down, rest, and revitalize.
Yoga Nidra 30 minutes
Part two is devoted to the ancient meditation practice of Yoga Nidra, where students lie comfortably on the floor and are guided using body, breath, and awareness techniques. The result is a profoundly restful meditation in which students approach a state similar to sleep while retaining a sense of wakefulness. With the use of setting an intention Yoga Nidra can be an excellent way to manifest positive change and counter stress and prevent stress-related illness. Students of all experience levels are welcome.
