Yoga Nidra

Yogic sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping. In Yoga Nidra the practitioner remains in a state of light withdrawal of the 5 senses (pratyahara) with four senses internalized, and only hearing still connects to any instructions given. The unique practice of yogic sleep will be accompanied with yoga and meditation and allow a maximizing of the restorative power in the body.

Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga

Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga hold the key to unlocking the full potential of a holistic and comprehensive yoga practice, both on and off the mat, is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. It is a completely different experience than most contemporary yoga. Restorative and Yin Yoga - is an experience, not a class. Not just a style of yoga but a journey.
The benefits of restorative yoga reach far beyond the heightened relaxation response and soothed nervous system.
The practice is characterized by long, static holds, using floor-based asana for muscle relaxation and myofascial release, allowing for a meditative focus, encouraged practitioner to dissolve in the principles of stillness, spaciousness, and quiet.
Deep meditation practice, different techniques and possibilities will be detailed, explained and experienced.
