Autumn Equinox Yin Yoga - This Sat 23rd Sept 4.30 - 6.30pm
Autumn equinox is a time for new beginnings, a punctuation point between seasons and a call for self-care.
This Yin Yoga class is perfect for literally everyone! Perhaps you have been sitting at a desk all week and your neck and shoulders are feeling it? Or you've been hauling around young children and your back is sore? Maybe you are feeling a little overwhelmed, lacking energy or stressed and are in need of some spa like rest? Or perhaps you've been working out too hard at the gym or just finished running the Harrow Half Marathon and need some deep, releasing stretches?
Whatever your reason for coming to Yin Yoga, it will leave you feeling wonderfully open, rested and like new. During this restorative, floor based class we'll begin with controlled breathing (Pranayama), then move through Yin and Restorative poses, wrapping up our practice with a long & deeply nourishing Yoga Nidra or "yogic sleep".
Yoga Nidra is a powerful antidote to our modern day, stressed out lifestyles where our nervous system tends to be in a constant state of 'fight or flight'. It brings us to that place between sleep and consciousness where deep emotional and physical healing can take place. It is a fast track way for us to switch over to our "rest and digest" parasympathetic nervous system, which is where healing happens.
This practice is designed to restore the nervous system and help release deeply held tensions from the body and mind. We'll use props to support the postures, while gently stretching and strengthening the body.
These classes take place only now and again, so make sure you don't miss out! Your body and mind will thank you. Book here.
If you haven't yet made it to a class & are still not convinced that yoga is for you, then be sure to take a look at the reviews!
I look forward to seeing you on the yoga mat soon.
