Introduction to Kundalini Yoga
Yin by Candlelight
Join Desiree for a soothing, nourishing evening Yin Yoga practice illuminated by soft candlelight. A quiet, introspective, and often profound practice, Yin Yoga is more of a ‘work-in’ than a ‘work-out’. Each posture is held for longer than usual, allowing our connective tissues (and our minds) to soak in the full benefit of the practice. This peaceful practice is for everyone – all you have to do is show up, slow down and surrender.
This class is suitable for:
- Beginners looking for a gentle introduction to yoga
- Practitioners of more dynamic styles of yoga seeking a balanced practice
- Avid sportspeople looking to complement their active lifestyles with restful recovery and recuperation
- Individuals leading fast-paced lives who wish to practice slowing down and being in the moment
Mindfulness Practice in Yoga and Meditation
Paying attention means listening, watching, noticing, without comment- it doesn’t mean judging, criticizing or feeling guilty. We need to see just the way we are, not to feel buried by everything that’s wrong or to induce more bad feeling. The breathing process is carry out by the automatic nervous system, meaning that we breath without having to do anything consciously. However, the way we breath directly corresponds to our emotions: stressful or fearful states are usually accompanied by short, shallow breathing, high in the chest; whereas peaceful and relaxed states are accompanied by longer, deeper breaths centre in the belly area. Benefits of Meditation: Meditation can give many practical and spiritual benefits, such as greater peace of mind, better concentration and the ability to relax from the stresses of modern life.
