In Yin yoga as well as in Yoga Nidra and Reiki we are exploring the concepts of surrender and release while we are opening up to guidance from beyond. Making our way through layer upon layer of habitual holding patterns of emotional history deep inside our tissues, muscles and cells. Releasing emotional tension, freeing stagnant or blocked energy.
We take the time out to listen to our body closely, to understand the transformative possibilities of being present, and to experience mindfulness principles on a physical level. To let the body guide the mind to the ultimate experience of peace. To cultivate a loving-kindness attitude to ourselves, and from this place of abundance offering it to the world. There is so much more to Yin yoga than only the physical stretching and rejuvenation. Allow Yin yoga to be an art, a philosophy and a way of live. If you’re up for exploring some more of this with us, this is your course.

Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is a beautiful and powerful meditation technique that is becoming increasingly popular as a strong and effective antidote for our modern stressful lifestyles. It is one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain. While the practitioner rests comfortably in savasana (corpse pose), this ancient systematic meditation technique takes you through the pancha maya kosha (five layers of self), leaving you with a sense of wholeness, rejuvenation and deep relaxation.
In Yoga Nidra, the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions. The practitioner is guided into a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping that is conducive to deep emotional and physical healing, rewiring of the brain and deep self-exploration. Yoga Nidra is an effective and efficient way to access the “rest and digest” parasympathetic state of the nervous system and has been found very successful in reducing stress, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety.
Yoga Nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation, while still maintaining the full consciousness. It helps to rest, restore, de-stress, increase awareness, undo bad habits and bring awareness to deep rooted conditioned behavioural patterns, it helps bring insight into our true calling and will help with bringing our life into alignment with our truth. Thirty minutes of Yoga Nidra practice is said to be equivalent to three to four hours of deep sleep.
The health benefits of Yoga Nidra include:
Reiki is an energy healing art with its roots in Japanese origin. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word ‘Rei’ which means “Universal Life” and ‘Ki’ which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not a massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using guided life force energy. Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things. Reiki practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen the energy in themselves and help others.
It is believed that a person’s Ki or energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance. A Reiki session can help remove energetic blockages, ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional. A Reiki session is usually very pleasant and deeply relaxing experience and is often utilised for one’s personal general wellbeing or for healing specific mental, emotional or physical conditions.
Reiki can be conducted either hands-on, in which several parts of the body are lightly touched by the practitioner’s hands to direct the energy there, or hands-off, where the hands are held slightly above the body. In addition, as Ki is not limited by distance or time, distant or remote Reiki healing is also possible without the client being physically present.
