DEEP RELEASE IMMERSION – an extended Yin Yoga practice + Sound bath journey
Sasha & Martina invite you to join them for a nurturing and grounding workshop, which will combine the nourishing practice of Yin Yoga with a deeply relaxing Sound Bath journey.
2020 has without doubt been a challenging year. As we move towards the festive season, we offer you the opportunity to slow down and allow time for deep healing. There will be an invitation to set an intention for the year ahead and to let go of what no longer serves you.
In the Yin postures we will primarily work on postures that balance the Kidney + Bladder Meridian pathways, which relate to the water element in the Chinese 5 element system. As move into winter and towards the end of the year, we can benefit from allowing ourselves time to slow down, let go + to tune into our inner wisdom.
Yin yoga postures are floor based and held for 3 – 5 minutes. Yin yoga works the body on many levels – Physically: the deep layers of Fascia through slow stretching are released. Energetically: The Meridian pathways (energy channels from Chinese medicine model) in the body, which are close to the surface of the skin are stimulated and this can release stagnant or stuck Qi (energy) Meditative: Yin yoga is a practice which creates space for stillness and therefore it is meditative in quality and can help cultivate a settled mind.
At the end of the Yin Yoga practice you will be encouraged to settle into a supportive Savasana to experience a blissful one-hour Sound bath led by Martina. A sound bath is a form of sound therapy where the gongs and other instruments are played in a therapeutic way to bring relaxation and healing. (The term gong bath means that you are bathed in sound waves.)It is a simple yet profound way to connect with the core of our being and tune our body at the cellular level through the gentleness of its resonance. It requires nothing but receptivity to be fully experienced, but it has to be experienced in order to be completely understood.
When the Gongs are played, the sound vibrations immediately quiet the mind, allowing relaxation in the whole body and beyond.
