Spring Renewal Yin + Yang + Nidra
Just as nature enters a cycle of renewal, growth and expansion, so does the energy within us. Join myself and Alex Ure for a cleansing, renewing and nourishing 2-hour Yang, Yin and Yoga Nidra masterclass.
Come out of hibernation with a Yang and Yin practice focused on cleansing our liver and gallbladder meridian lines targeted through our hips and lower back. Finish this practice with a guided yoga nidra session to set a new intention for Spring, and to cleanse our minds of old thought patterns. Expect plenty of hands on adjustments from your teachers and leave feeling renewed in body, mind and soul!
Open to all levels. Bring an eye pillow if you have one and a small thin pillow for under your head.
