Workshop: Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra

In this 2-hour workshop, our yoga instructor José will take you on a journey into ultimate relaxation of body and mind. This afternoon truly is a gift to yourself. We spend more time in supported restorative yoga poses

and experience what it feels like to really slow down and approach our body from a place of kindness. Deep relaxation creates space in the body, breathing and the mind. From this relaxed state we dive into Yoga Nidra: ‘The sleep of the Yogi’. So relaxing!

When? Sunday November 24th from 15:00 to 17:00

Fees? 20.00 for members, 25.00 for non-members

Workshop Flow & Yoga Nidra

Treat yourself to a wonderful afternoon with a Flow & Yoga Nidra session: a blessing for your body and mind! On Sunday August 29th, our yoga instructor José will lead you into a relaxed yoga flow where you turn into your body and just let the energy flow. During the second part of the workshop you will fall into a full relaxation with Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is also called the Yoga of Sleep. This term does not quite cover it… although during Yoga Nidra it may seem as if you are sleeping, you are actually very alert and present, balancing between a waking and sleeping state. In this state you can connect with your subconscious. Through the guided relaxation, breathing exercises and visualizations you enter a deep state of relaxation and tranquility. In this state, experiences and fragments of memories are processed, muscle tension and stress in the body decreases, and blood pressure and heart rate drops. This has a incredibly healing effect on body and mind. Come and let yourself be surprised by this unique yoga experience!

Join us on August 29th from 15:00 to 17:00.

Fees are €20 for members (€25 for non-members). Registration via info@in-tension.nl.
