Yin Yoga with Imee
Yin Yoga helps us take our foot off the accelerator helping to calm the nervous system by bringing the body and mind closer connected to be less reactive, “neutral mind”. The practice
uses traction & compression during long holds to Deeply stimulate the body’s ability to hydrate, and replenish our deeper tissues.
Restorative Yoga with Janice
A restorative practice relies on the use of props(blankets, bolster, straps and blocks) and prolonged holding of a few simple poses to achieve a deep level of relaxation. This unique style of yoga helps us slow down the pace of life and replenish our nervous system. Stillness of body helps us achieve a closer stillness of mind helping to quiet and soothe. The practice helps foster an expansive body awareness & level of mindfulness as we learn to rest within the postures growing more aware of where we hold tension, stress & pain and learn to let it go. Restorative is open to all, no yoga experience necessary!
Divine Sleep or Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation that systematically guides and relaxes you at every level of being including your physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual layers (called the 5 koshas).
Through the use of breath awareness, body scanning, healing music and nature imagery, Divine Sleep invites you to become aware of each layer of being without needing to change or fix anything. This is true meditation where there is nothing to do but to ‘notice’ — supporting you in feeling empowered and whole just as you are.
This contemporary practice is based on ancient yogic wisdom and meditation to make a powerful tool for modern day life.
Class will begin with a little description of the technique, followed by genlte Qi Gong warm -ups to help move energy and help us deeply relax (we need energy to consciously relax!) Then you are invited to lay down comfortably with support or not or even sit if preferable and take in the practice.
