Yin Yoga for Ultimate Relaxation with Claire

Yin Yoga is one of the most relaxing and static style of Yoga that allows you to make a deep connection with your body and release hidden tension. A passive practice, Yin Yoga involves variations of seated and supine poses typically held, accessing deeper layers of fascia.

If you struggle with too many racing thoughts and crave for calm, Yin Yoga is perfect for you. Yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspect of things; yang is the changing, moving, revealing aspect. In the body, the relatively stiff connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, fascia) are yin, while the more mobile and pliable muscles and blood are yang. This class taught by a certified Yin Yoga teacher, Claire, will make you feel super relaxed.

Class 9 @ 6 pm:
Gong Bath & Meditation with Lara

Gong Baths are one of the most soothing, body detoxing holistic rejuvenating vibrational ancient tools. The Gong produces a strong sound wave, almost tangible to the touch, which stimulates the physical body by influencing the surface of the skin and every cell. It feels like a sound massage for the body and mind (great for those of you who like the idea of a massage, but don’t like to be touched).

The gong is a sacred and ancient instrument of healing, rejuvenation and transformation. On a physical level, the gong releases tension and blocks in the body, it stimulates a higher functioning of the glandular and nervous system, it increases prana, our vital life force and improves circulation.

This class will be lead by Lara, an experienced Yoga teacher and Gong practitioner.
