Releasing through Stillness. Immerse in Restorative and Yin Yoga.
“When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself. When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world. Your innermost sense of self, of who you are, is inseparable from stillness. This is the I Am that is deeper than name and form.” Eckhart Tolle
Join Jen for this 2 hour masterclass to release stress and tension by becoming quiet and still.
Yin Yoga is primarily a floor-based practice that often utilises props such as blocks and bolsters to support the body and create a sense of ease. By moving through the postures with softness and finding stillness in them at approximately 50-70% of one’s stretch depth, the connective tissue of the body called fascia is targeted. A recognition of the crucial role that fascia plays in the human body is relatively new to science. It was only within the past 10 years that we have learned that this connective tissue that runs throughout the entire body and encases the muscles actually sends out signals and communicates with the greater body. By hydrating and stretching the fascia, we can gain a greater range of motion that lasts long-term and build strength and resilience in the tissues and nervous system.
Restorative Yoga is bliss! On a physical level restorative yoga targets our nervous system, our digestive system, and also has a direct impact on all the internal systems within our body. Through down-regulating the sympathetic nervous system and up-regulating the parasympathetic nervous system, you will release stress and chronic stress to support your body’s natural rhythms and cycles for repair and healing. This down- regulation will help you slow down the incessant mental noise to allow you to ‘go beyond’ the thinking mind into a state of deep relaxation and stillness.
