Date: Friday the 18th of May 2018
Price: £20 per person
Location: The Cheadle Village Hall, Brook Road, Cheadle, Cheshire, SK8 1PQ
Mike will be hosting an evening dedicated to the experience of restorative & yin yoga. Both of these practices are still, introspective & deeply nourishing with all the postures performed for 3-5 minutes from a lying down or seated position with the support of props such as bolsters, blocks & blankets.
Restorative yoga places the body into deeply relaxing positions that helps to activate the para-sympathetic nervous system which is activated during states of sleep & meditation. This can help us to restore a sense of balance to our often very busy & hectic lives which can often place us into a state of high stress & tension.
Yin Yoga places the body into deep static stretches that help to stimulate the deeper connective tissue & fascia and can be very powerful in releasing tension to the hips, hamstrings & lower spine. Yin yoga is a wonderful compliment to more active forms of practice (eg Ashtanga vinyasa yoga or vinyasa flow) and to other forms of exercise such as running, swimming & cycling.
This workshop is open to all levels from absolute beginners to experienced practitioners. Mike will guide you through a sequence that interweaves both practices that is safe, enjoyable & deeply relaxing. Modifications & alternatives will be given for each pose which will conclude with a peaceful Yoga Nidra (Yogic Sleep) leaving you feeling calm & grounded ready for the weekend ahead.
