embracing quiet - a yin & restorative yoga workshop
saturday 25 february | 14.00 - 17.00 | The Life Centre, Islington, N1 8QH
Eastern traditions recognise that true wellbeing comes from balancing the opposing energies of yin (calm and cooling) and yang (energetic and fiery). Modern, city culture which often promotes striving and acheiving over resting and reflecting can make this balance hard to achieve.
This workshop will seek to redress the balance. In the initial yin practice (a largely floor-based practice - not a downward dog in sight!) poses are held for 3 minutes or longer allowing muscles and connective tissues to gradually release. We will then drop into deeper stillness through restorative poses. With the body supported by props, but before the edge of stretch our nervous system can drop into a deep relaxation so we return to our lives a little more balanced, revived and refreshed.
Places are £35. Open to all levels.
