Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra Workshop with Lon Gibbons

Saturday 28th of May

16:00-18:00

£25 for Members and £35 for non Members

Stress is a normal and essential part of life. Resilience is a measure of how we handle stress. Restorative yoga practices like yin yoga and yoga nidra are excellent stress management skills, vital for building and maintaining physical, mental and emotional resilience. The nervous system is designed to react and then recover. It is how well we can switch between these two states that is the key.  These slower and more relaxing techniques have a calming effect directly on the nervous system and allow a more easeful switching on of the parasympathetic response. Practised regularly, they build resilience by widening the ‘window of tolerance’ between reacting to and recovering from a stressful or traumatic incident.

Yin yoga is slow, with poses being held for 2-5 minutes, giving time for the body and mind to relax. Some props may be used to ensure comfort rather than effort. Yoga Nidra is a very deep relaxation practice, usually practised lying down, which takes you to the liminal place between being awake and being asleep, a healing space. 

Lon has been teaching these practices for over 20 years.  Whether you may be new to these techniques or already familiar with them, do not miss two hours of nourishing and relaxing yoga. Learn ways to continue building resilience through your own practice at home and gain life-long skills of self regulation. Please come wearing warm layers and bring eye shades, so you can allow comfort to deepen your experience.
