Restorative Autumn Yin & Nidra

Restorative Autumn Yin & Nidra

Friday, October 4, 2019
7:30 PM 9:00 PM
October 4th, 7.30pm @ The Yoga Lounge, Upper Boddington. Limited to 6 places only.

There is a natural tendency during this time of transition to reflect upon what part of our own lives might be out of balance and how we can cultivate more balance mentally, emotionally and physically. A Yin Yoga practice is a wonderful way to regain some centering and embrace the changing seasons. In Chinese Medicine Theory Autumn is a time for letting go. To surrender. To release. To exhale.

We will explore postures and acupressure points to stimulate the lung and large intestine Meridian (related to the Metal element) which connects us to Autumn. Honouring transitions helps bring us into alignment with nature. It assists in letting go of habitual negative thought patterns and opens us to new potential.

The practise will end with a wonderful healing Yoga Nidra.

Yoga nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful meditation technique, and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain. While the practitioner rests comfortably in savasana (corpse pose), this systematic meditation takes you through the pancha maya kosha (five layers of self), leaving you with a sense of wholeness. No longer do you have to dread spending hours sitting on the floor waiting for liberation. Here are five benefits of developing a yoga nidra practice.
