A perfect antedote to a busy week (and life) these sessions work with the deep connective tissues in the body and the energy meridians (as in traditional chinese medicine) and are connected to the season and elements. Yin yoga is a meditative form where postures are generally floor based and held for a few minutes. The muscles are soft so that you relax into the posture and focus on simply being rather than doing with the aim of balancing the energy flow through joints and organs in the body. Yoga nidra is yogic sleep the deepest form of guided relaxation, where you are guided to truly relax the body and yet still be aware. You are guided to listen into your heart for anything you may need to tell yourself. This can be a deeply transformative, healing experience. The yoga nidra is accompanied by the shruti and flute and is followed by tea and homebakes. £15 in advance, £18 within 7 days Please click on dates above to book or call/text Annie on 07778865666
