Sound yoga is a gentle but powerful way to help reduce physical, emotional and mental stress and tension and to connect to your own natural rhythm. Sound yoga is a combination of mindful yoga with sound, using tibetan singing bowls, sound massage, sound relaxation, and sound meditation. Using singing bowls during yoga, we experience an amazing effect. The healing sound vibration travels deep into our muscles, fascia and organs, massaging them while we are holding the pose. The heart rhythm is calmed, we relax deeply and feel inner joy. We will practice asanas, meditation, relaxation, breath and massage with the support of sound. Perfect for beginne
Restorative Yoga and Deep Relaxation
Saturday, 11th January, 14.30 – 16.30pm, €25
A perfect antidote to stress, this gentle practice combines mindful movement, restorative yoga and deep relaxation. Slow yoga strengthens the body and steadies the mind. In this practice, the relaxation response is triggered, helping the nervous system to recover from daily stress. Restorative yoga uses props in the form of blankets, bolsters and blocks to support the body during stretches. This frees the muscles to completely relax allowing for deep release. The skill of mindfulness will be developed by paying careful attention to the breath and to the sensations experienced.
This workshop is an excellent practice for those needing some downtime from a busy lifestyle. In fact, deep relaxation has been shown to help with many health issues, promoting well-being in body and mind.
