This class is medicine for the soul. A mix of yin yoga & yoga nidra under the energy of Mother Moon in her full illumination.
TPY yin yoga can help you truly unwind through a combination of floor based yoga poses (asana) to help open your body physically and energetically so you can release tensions and worries.
The sequence of relaxing poses use the support of bolsters, blocks and blankets and are designed to rid the body of tension and stress. Long holds (two to five minutes per posture) help you work deeper into the physical body, enabling you to lengthen and juice up your connective tissue, increasing flexibility. And as your body starts to soften and relax, you can turn your attention to the mind to see what you can let go of there too.
You don’t need to be flexible to practise yin yoga; it is perfect for beginners who can’t touch their toes as well as advanced yogis wanting to deepen their practice.
You will then effortlessly float you into your yoga nidra practice - yogic sleep (or as Mel likes to call it, supervised adult napping) The healing practice of yoga nidra is an immensely powerful meditation technique, and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain. This systematic meditation takes you through the pancha maya kosha (five layers of self), leaving you with a sense of wholeness.
The mix of these practices activate the parasympathetic nervous system (the part of your nervous system that controls rest and digestion), allowing you to enter a deeply cellular state of relaxation.
Also, if you suffer from any of the following you will benefit from this class;
• insomnia or sleep problems
• tension headache and migraine
• overthinking, worry, constant thought
• high blood pressure
• adrenal fatigue
This class offers a beautiful experience to guide you deep into yourself and is a great way to take of your life and rest awhile.
