This mini-retreat will focus on releasing tension held in the body and calming the nervous system to leave you feeling refreshed and renewed for the New Year. Coupled with salt therapy and the beauty of the cave, it will compliment the events of the night. Be prepared to lose track of time and let go of the outside world in this special overnight retreat that includes yin yoga, yoga nidra, gentle yoga and guided meditation.
Yin Yoga's emphasis on inner stillness promotes a deeply meditative experience. Yin Yoga consists of a series of passive floor poses that are typically held for 3-5 minutes to release the body's chronic holding patterns and help recapture ease of movement. Yin yoga poses apply gentle tension to the connective tissues - the tendons, fascia, and ligaments - with the aim of increasing circulation in the deeper tissues and improving flexibility in the body.
Yoga Nidra, known as yogic sleep, is a powerful experience of progressively relaxing and restoring physically, energetically, mentally and emotionally that naturally opens us to accessing our intuition and deep restorative peace. The practice of Yoga Nidra activates the relaxation response and deactivates the stress response, improves sleep and promotes physical healing all while laying comfortably on your back in shavasana.
