Yin Yoga - a mindful practice

Yin Yoga is a quiet practice. Simple but not necessarily an easy practice. It allows you to slow down and connect with your inner landscape, using your breath and stillness. In this practice the postures are mostly on the floor and held from anywhere from a minute upto 3 minutes for beginners and longer if you have been practicing for a while. Yin yoga targets our deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues — ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep networks of the body — rather than the muscles. Yin Yoga works the physical, energetic and mental bodies. Energetically, yin yoga improves the energy flow, enhancing the flow of chi/prana in the organs. To be healthy, we need healthy organs as well as healthy muscles.

Some benefits of a regular practice:
  • Mind and body balance and calmness - a space to connect to the stillness within us

  • Reduction in stress and anxiety 

  • Increases circulation and improves flexibility

  • Fascial release

  • Greater joint mobility

  • Balance to the internal organs and improved flow of chi or prana through meridian stimulation

Vinyasa Yoga - a mindful flow

The term vinyāsa refers to the alignment of movement and breath. Vinyasa refers to a specific series of alignment of movement and breath that are frequently done between each asana in a series. Thus turning static asanas (poses) into a dynamic flow.

Benefits of a regular practice:
  • Calming - The steady cycle of inhales and exhales provides you with a calming, mental focal point.

  • Purification of body -The continual movements, from one pose to another, gives you an added cardiovascular benefit creating internal heat. The increased circulation and sweat leads to purification of the body.

  • Increase muscle strength & flexibility - the routines, whether they are slow paced or fast paced are a great workout for your body.

  • Brings you to the present - Yoga opens you up to this moment, which is all there is and which is the doorway to experience truth and real happiness.​

Yoga Nidra

 

Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation that systematically guides and relaxes you at every level of being including your physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual layers. This contemporary practice is based on ancient yogic wisdom and meditation to make a powerful tool for modern-day life.

Yoga nidra activates the parasympathetic nervous system (the part of your nervous system that controls rest and digestion), allowing the practitioner to enter a state of ultimate relaxation. Healing practices like yoga nidra can help alleviate stress, depression, and anxiety by repairing and restoring the body on the deepest, cellular level. Yoga nidra, also known as “yogic sleep” is also a wonderful alternative to sleeping pills to anyone suffering from stress-induced insomnia.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative yoga is a therapeutic style of yoga that promotes deep relaxation for the body through supportive poses. The more the body is supported the deeper the relaxation can be experienced. In full relaxation, there is no movement, no effort and the mind is silent. 

Restorative yoga helps to engage the parasympathetic nervous system allowing for improved digestion and the reduction of muscle tension, chronic stress, fatigue, blood pressure, serum triglycerides, and blood sugar levels. While the body relaxes in restorative yoga poses, health is promoted throughout all of the organs, tissues, and body systems.
Through regular practice of restorative yoga comes the blissful juicy moments of a balanced mind, body and spirit.

Pranayama

The regulation of the breath through certain techniques and exercises. "Prana" is Breath or vital energy in the body. On subtle levels prana represents the pranic energy responsible for life or life force, and "ayama" means control. So Pranayama is "Control of Breath."
