Vin Yin Yoga, also referred to as Yin Yang Yoga, is a yoga sequence that combines Vinyasa Yoga and Yin Yoga. We start with a Vinyasa flow as the first half of the sequence and Yin Yoga as the second half. Vinyasa warms the body, invigorates and builds strength. After this, your body is ready to relax and lengthen during Yin Yoga to promote flexibility and deepen into stillness of mind. It is a great combination and something I frequently love to practice.
Miriam takes you through a beautifully systematic Yoga Nidra guided meditation, also known as dynamic sleep. Her deeply calming voice penetrates into your very soul, instilling a sense of deep peace and leaving you feeling incredibly relaxed, present and rejuvenated.
Yoga Nidra brings immediate physical benefits, such as reduced stress and better sleep and studies indicate that yoga nidra helps to stabilize blood sugar levels; alleviate PMS symptoms, depression, and anxiety; and combat PTSD.
Anyone can do Yoga Nidra. You lie down on the floor with a blanket underneath you and above you. You may also like to place a pillow under your head, a bolster/pillow under your knees and an eye pillow or scarf. Wear comfortable clothing – pyjamas is fine!
Are you ready to start a daily meditation practice but find you are struggling to start or just find it hard to get up and going?
In this 5 day course we come into the practice of Sadhana - a daily spiritual practice to bring not only consistency, but to nurture and support yourself which is immeasurable, your own sacred practice to rely on, a time to devote to yourself to find more balance and wellbeing into your life.
Mantra Meditation is one of my favourite meditation practices and this 5 day course will bring together a wonderful sense of community and presence.
A mantra is a syllable, word, or phrase that is repeated during meditation. Mantras are designed to give the mind an object to focus on. When you have an object of focus, it becomes easier to steady the mind. Mantras can be spoken, chanted, whispered, or repeated in the mind. Most mantra meditation techniques have two essential components: mindfulness meditation and mantra recitation.
Mantra Meditation helps to:

Restorative yoga is a gentle, slow, still style of yoga that involves long, passive holds in a series of 4-6 restful poses, the focus is not on stretching or strengthening but on releasing. We release tension in the muscles and gently stimulate the organs through long-held poses designed to support and comfort. To achieve comfort a variety of props such as blankets, blocks, bolsters, and eye pillows may be used. Restorative yoga is incredibly supportive for our nervous system and overall stress levels, reducing the production of stress hormones (cortisol and adrenaline), improving the function of our immune system, reduce muscle tension, help with insomnia, and so much more.
If for any reason you cannot attend this class don't worry I will send you a link to view the class at your own leisure for a period of 7 days afterwards.
Yin yoga targets your deep connective tissues, like your fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones. It’s slower and more meditative, giving you space to turn inward and tune into both your mind and the physical sensations of your body. Because you’re holding poses for a longer period of time, on average 3-6 minutes than you would in other traditional types of yoga, yin yoga helps you stretch and lengthen those rarely-used tissues while also teaching you how to breathe through discomfort and sit with your thoughts.
This type of yoga improves flexibility and mobility, lengthens your connective tissue, boosts circulation, and helps to reduce stress.
