Huelya will lead a workshop style session exploring the benefits and history of Yin Yoga and how to teach the practice to others. If you are a yoga teacher, this is an amazing opportunity to not only learn how to share Yin Yoga with your students, but to experience it power and benefit for yourself first. After the workshop part is complete, Huelya will take you into an intimate exploration of your body through a Yin Yoga class followed by a Yoga Nidra session. Your awareness will expand with each pose reaching its peak in the Nidra part.
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.
