Description:  

Mike will be hosting an evening dedicated to the experience of restorative & yin yoga. Both of these practices are still, instrspective & deeply nourishing with all the postures performed for 3-5 minutes from a lying down or seated position with the support of props such as bolsters, blocks & blankets. 

 

Restorative yoga places the body into a deeply relaxing position that helps to activate the para-sympathetic nervous system which is activated during states of sleep & meditation. This can help us to restore a sense of balance to our often very busy and hectic lives which can often highten stress & tension. 

 

Yin yoga places the body into deep static stretches that help to stimulate the deeper connective & fascia and can be very powerful in releasing tension to the hips, hamstrings & lower spine. Yin yoga is a wonderful compliment to more active forms of practice (eg Ashtanga vinyasa yoga or vinyasa flow) and to other forms of exercise such as running, swimming or cycling. 

 

This workshop is open to all levels from absolute beginners to experienced practitioners Mike will guide you through a sequence that interweaves both practices that is safe, enjoyable & deeply relaxing. Modifications & alternatives will be given for each pose which will conclude with a peaceful Yoga Nidra (Yogic sleep) leaving you feeling calm & grounded ready for the weekend ahead. 

 

This event has a maximum number of 12 people please book early to secure your place
