Yin + Rest
Jul 16, 2022 - Jul 16, 2022

Please join us for a 90-minute restorative practice of Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidrā. The intention of this workshop is to help you relax, unwind, and rejuvenate, and connect with a sense of inner peace and joy.

Matthew Lyons will guide the workshop, beginning with a practice of Yin Yoga. The focus is the deep connective tissue of the body. Access to joints, fascia, ligaments, tendons, and muscles to bones, rather than simply the muscles themselves. Yin Yoga promotes mobility and suppleness of the joints, fascia, and connective tissue. The practice of Yin involves moving into various poses and holding them for a short period — usually 3-5 minutes per pose. Instead of using active muscle strength to move through or hold in a pose, as you would in a Yang asana practice, in Yin you are asked to move to the point of resistance in a pose and then release. The depth in each posture will gradually become deeper with time — whether that’s during class or over days, weeks, or months. Yin Yoga is a practice suitable for all levels — from first-time yogis to experienced practitioners. No yoga experience is needed

After spending about 45-50 minutes with Yin, you will gently transition to a practice of Yoga Nidrā, a gently-guided meditation. Yoga Nidra is a centuries-old meditation practice, often referred to as yogic sleep though going to sleep is not the intent of the practice. Through the use of breath awareness, body scanning, healing music, and imagery, you will are invited in the practice to simply become aware of your experience and sensations without needing to change or fix anything. This is a meditation where there is truly nothing for you to do but notice — supporting you in feeling empowered and whole just as you are. Additionally, experiencing this practice can feel like two to three hours of deep rest to your body. No yoga or meditation experience is needed, and all levels are welcome.

No special apparel is needed or required, but comfortable and stretchy attire is suggested.
