Shift your inner state to one of deep relaxation, peace and equilibrium through sound, vibration and yin yoga asana.
An accessible series of Yin Yoga asana will be synchronized to the serene sounds and deep therapeutic vibrations of Ancient Tibetan Singing Bowls. Vibrational sound therapy (also known as sound healing) is an extremely powerful and non-intrusive method to release stress and reduce physical pain and tension. The deep vibrations and healing energy of the Ancient Tibetan Singing Bowls will deepen and enhance the effects of the yoga asana.
If you are new to Yin Yoga, this workshop will provide a wonderful introduction to this nourishing practice. It’s a gentle form of yoga where passive floor based asanas are held in a relaxed state for 3 to 5 minutes at a time. These long holds and slow pace are deeply nourishing- by emphasising passive stress on the deep connective tissues, Yin Yoga is therapeutically used to improve flexibility, and to mobilise and strengthen our joints, ligaments and deep fascial networks. It also enhances the free flow of prana throughout one’s body by directly stimulating the nadis. The experience of Yin Yoga is soothing and calming. It unlocks deeply held physical and emotional tension and cultivates patience and stillness – qualities that help us work towards meditation and deep relaxation.
*No prior yoga experience is required*
**Please bring a yoga mat and a large towel (e.g. beach towel or large bath towel) to this workshop. It is also nice to cover your eyes at appropriate times during the workshop. If you have an eye pillow bring it along, otherwise a small face towel, handkerchief or clean sock will do the trick!
