Powerful Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra

  • DDL Capoeira School, Streatham 136 Streatham High Road London, England, SW16 United Kingdom (map)

Yin Yoga is a slow, mindful practice during which lying and seated poses are passively held for 3-5 minutes. Long-held poses help to overcome restrictions in the fascia and other connective tissues, significantly improving range of motion. The stillness and quietness of this practice enables the nervous system to switch into 'rest and digest' mode and the mind to become completely engrossed in the present moment. Yin Yoga is a perfect counterbalance to Yang, active, competitive and fast-paced lifestyle many of us lead. 

This workshop will be stronger in terms of intensity of the poses, but we'll be maintaining the principles of yin: stillness, awareness and acceptance. This will give us an opportunity to observe the mind's reaction to challenging situations. As usual, it'll be a full body practice yet we'll take care of the often neglected parts of the body, such as feet and ankles.
