Yin Yoga & Yoga Nidra

  • YogaNation 8 Conway Street Red Deer, AB, T4P 0N1 Canada (map)

Yin yoga is often described as the other half of a yoga practice. In relation to Yoga, a Yang practice is a faster practice, affecting muscles, making them longer and stronger. A yin yoga practice is a slower, deeper practice affecting the connective tissues of the body. Yin Yoga encourages the body to slowly and mindfully enter yin poses using the breath to stimulate the flow of chi(energy) and remain highly focused on the sensations promoted by the pose. The lengthy posture steadiness and stillness allows one to develop passive yin qualities of surrender, allowing full nourishment to the body’s meridians and joints. Join us in a relaxing environment to cleanse the mind and body- a perfect ending to your day.

Stressed? Anxious? Tired? Tense? Insomniac? Or do you just want more in your life? Then YOGA NIDRA is for you.

Yoga nidra or "yogic sleep" is a state experienced during meditation.

It is said that 30 minutes of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to four hours of deep sleep. In today's busy world, it is more essential than ever to give the thinking mind some time out and allow the body and mind time to rest.

*Suitable for beginners
