Yoga for Stress Management: A Yin and Yoga Nidra Workshop
SUNDAY, OCT. 21st
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Join Fedora for a two-hour deeply relaxing Yin and Yoga Nidra workshop to counter any seasonal stress you may be experiencing. Yin Yoga is a restorative style of yoga that uses long-held, passive poses to nourish the connective tissues in the body, promoting greater physical flexibility, organ health and peace of mind.
The first hour will be spent in a soothing yin practice where poses will be held from 2-7 minutes to support ease, rest, and restoration. We will then move into an hour of Yoga Nidra, also known as ‘yogic sleep’, a deep relaxation practice that works directly on the energetic body inducing a state of wakeful calm and deep rest.
Students will participate in an iRest Yoga Nidra which has been shown to be effective for stress management and in treating PTSD, insomnia, depression, and anxiety.
All Experience Levels are welcome. Wear warm, comfortable layers and bring a pillow and blanket. Investment is $25 or by donation based on need.
You can also donate any amount you wish via cash at the door.
*** Please note that we are capping this workshop at 14 participants, so we will be working on a first come, first served basis. Your payment of $25 automatically reserves your spot in the workshop.
