Yoga House | Let’s take some rest

*|MC:SUBJECT|*

Dear Yogis, 

How are you doing? We are here for you.  

This week we look at the importance of getting some rest in your day. That’s proper rest, not the ‘rest’ you get from coming face to face with exhaustion. We list some great classes to help with this and look at their benefits. 

Our online schedule is still in place and we love seeing so many of you maintaining your practice virtually. Once the doors of the studio reopen, we have four beautiful workshops to end the year with. Teacher Imir has a wonderful Yoga Teacher Training coming up if you are looking to deepen your practice and explore a new life with yoga. 

And finally, we help you out with a fabulous Christmas gift idea!

TIME TO REST 
During a time when we are spending more time in our homes, you would think finding time to rest would be easy. However, this may not be the case for many of you. Juggling working from home, families and the continuous stress of what is happening in the world just leads us to collapsing on the sofa. Binge watching TV, constantly scrolling through social media is not actual rest.      ,
 
For many of us, we live in a constant state of Go.  Our minds race and even when we do restful activities, we can’t shut off. This Go state is when the sympathetic part of our nervous system is fired up in fight or flight. Stress hormones are flooding our system and our rest and repair nervous system (parasympathetic) is closed down. Over time, this can remain closed, with our bodies unable to switch back into rest and repair. This is when burn out can happen leading to chronic fatigue and other issues. Rest is highly important.  

Yoga offers many benefits to the body and caring for the parasympathetic nervous system is one. It good to start listening to your body and working out what style of yoga is best suited to your mind and energy levels at that time. 



Here are some relaxing classes
on offer at Yoga House 
Yin
In Yin classes you hold seated and floor based postures (often supported by blocks, bricks and bolsters) for longer periods of time. In this time we work towards finding ‘the edge’ the place where you are challenging the body but can soften into the pose without pushing, finding stillness, and surrendering. Going deep, working with the breath, noticing the subtle sensations in the body, releasing. 
This practise allows the deep tissue (fascia) to become more fluid and soften,  promoting mobility in the joints and releasing stress in the body while the stillness promotes calmness in the mind.  
Thursdays | Yin/Restore | Sasha | 7pm
  
Nidra
Yoga Nidra  is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the “going-to-sleep” stage. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and you becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions. Yoga Nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness. Guided meditation performed in Savasana.
Monday | Yin/Nidra | Alice | 8pm
 
Alchemy Bowls/Sound Healing
Healing with sound is believed to be one of the oldest forms of healing known to man and dates back to ancient Greece when Pythagoras was the first known person to prescribe music as medicine.
Our entire body, down to our very DNA is crystalline in structure and we each vibrate at our own unique frequency. We are made up of over 70% water, our cells are filled with fluid so sound frequency is an amazing tool for healing at a cellular level.
When we are out of rhythm, dis-ease and disharmony in the body can manifest. The Alchemy Crystal bowls can work with these imbalances and blockages of our energy channels and help restore balance within the body once more.
Fridays | Yin & Alchemy Bowls | Kasia | 6pm
December 18 | Workshop | Details Below
Kasia is hosting a Sound Session on her IG Live channel this Saturday 21st November 5pm 


 Gong Bath 
A gong bath is an immersive sound experience. It’s called a ‘bath’  because sound waves ‘wash’ over you as you relax and enjoy the melodic journey. The harmonics will effortlessly lull your mind into a meditative state, while the vibrations revitalize your body and help to release tension. By the end, you’ll feel supremely relaxed, calm and happy.
