Yin + Yoga Nidra
$15 drop in or punch pass
This 75 minute class combines yin yoga and yoga nidra.
Yin Yoga calms and balances the mind and body, improves circulation, flexibility, and joint mobility, and promotes fascial release. Yoga postures are held for 3-5 minutes using props as needed for comfort and support. After 30 minutes of stretching, yoga nidra will follow.
Yoga Nidra produces profound relaxation in the body-muscular, mental, and emotional. During yoga nidra you will lie in a comfortable, propped position and be led through a series of verbal cues and visualizations to bring your mind into a deep state of rest and relaxation.
No yoga experience is necessary.
A Restorative Yoga practice can dramatically reduce the effects of stress on your body and your mind. In this 75 minute practice, you will be guided into a series of poses in which you are completely supported with bolsters and blankets. These supported poses allow you to find stillness in both body and mind. Leave feeling as if you have a new lease on life, completely relaxed and renewed.
Please register for this class to save your spot. Class size is limited to 8.
