This practice calms the nervous system, reduces worry/stress, and relieves anxiety. It improves the quality of sleep and the ease of falling asleep, it can be helpful for those who have insomnia.
The class goes for 45 minutes and is the is equivalent to 2-4 hours of sleep as the brain produces theta brain waves. To have a deeper practice, you are welcome to cover your eyes with an eye mask/pillow or clothing.
This practice combines Yin yoga and vinyasa yoga. Yin Yoga poses are typically held for longer periods, accessing deeper layers of fascia or connective tissue such as ligaments and tendons. This helps increases blood circulation, improves flexibility, and lowers anxiety or stress. Vinyasa meaning “flow” is great for connecting the body, mind & breath. Typically, vinyasa is practiced with one movement with one breath. These styles together create a balance and help improve the energy or “prana” flow within the body, mind, and spirit.
