Huelya will take you into an intimate exploration of your body through specifically selected Yin style poses followed by an extended Nidra session. Your awareness will expand with each pose reaching its peak in the Nidra part. After Nidra is complete, Huelya will lead an informational session exploring the benefits and history of Yin and Yoga Nidra.
Yin Yoga is a calm, intense, and relaxing practice with long-held poses, usually 2-5 minutes, in as much stillness as your body allows. It consists mostly of passive stretches, and includes some active strengthening poses. The main goal for the physical body is to work the connective tissue – tendons, ligaments, and fascia – and ultimately have a therapeutic effect on the joints. Yin Yoga also works deeply the energetic body by using poses that work certain meridians – the energetic channels in the body.
Nidra is a very deep form of relaxation and awareness expansion, a real treat after the intense Yin yoga practice.
If you only feel called to attend the Yin & Nidra Immersion, feel free to do so. The immersion part ends around 4:30pm, where we will take a break before starting the learning part.
No previous Yoga experience needed, but having taken a Yin Yoga class is recommended.
