Relax, Rejuvenate & Rebalance
This candle lit restorative yoga class is a perfect way to unwind and close out your working week so you're fully recharged & ready for the weekend ahead. In restorative yoga, otherwise known as the art of relaxation, the body is fully supported by props in passive yoga poses to gently stretch, relax and open the body, adjusting the nervous system and resting the adrenal glands to melt away physical and mental tensions and promoting deep release, rest & relaxation in the mind and body. They also assist the body’s processes of healing injuries and recovering from illness by releasing tension that would otherwise impede recovery. Taking place in a calming setting of candlelight and soothing music, this yoga class is the ideal opportunity to take your mind off your busy life & indulge yourself.
Open to all ages & abilities - No experience necessary.

Bathing In Stillness
A Yin Yoga & Yoga Nidra Workshop
Sunday 6th May | 11am - 12.30pm

Stacks Image 27132
A special Sunday workshop to indulge in the quiet and gentle practice of Yin Yoga and soak up the transformative power of Yoga Nidra.
Yin Yoga is a healing practice of long-held poses where muscles completely relax & surrender to allow us to access the deeper layers of the body. It works on releasing constrictions in the connective tissue, ligaments, and tendons that support the hips, pelvis and lower spine. It also stimulates & opens the energy meridians of the subtle body, often described as a “needleless acupuncture session” for the body!
This nurturing workshop will take you through a specific series of seated & supine poses. Aimed at improving joint mobility, cultivating flexibility and help you heal yourself by releasing deep seated tension, breaking up blockages and thus encouraging easier flow of energy around the body, moving you out of negative emotions. You’ll discover balance and find a deep peace in your body & mind.

After the physical part of the practice you will release yourself totally with a Yoga Nidra Meditation. Yoga Nidra, or Yogic Sleep, takes you into a deep state of relaxation & ease which shifts the nervous system to a restorative and healing mode. It brings an incredible sense of calmness, quietness, and clarity.
Sooth, restore and relax deeply in this bliss bubbling Sunday yoga workshop.

Come and enjoy!
