A Deep Therapeutic Immersion

Join Yulia for this special 6-part immersion into the therapeutics of Yin & Restorative Yoga. Over 9-hours of expert tuition you will explore ways to bring balance to the physical body using simple supported and held postures which shift the nervous system into its parasympathetic mode (ie. relieve stress). During the 6-part immersion you will:

  • Explore ways to bring balance to the physical body using simple supported and held postures which shift the nervous system into its parasympathetic mode (ie. relieve stress).

  • Practice simple and effective techniques such as pranayama (breathing exercises), interoceptive exercises, yoga nidra (deep relaxation) and simple meditation that can be easily applied in daily life.

  • Understand what fascia is, why conventional stretching is not always effective and how to use ‘ball rolling’ to release tension and pain.

  • Experience the connection between your breathing and various restrictions/tensions in the body.

  • Learn how to free physical tension using the breath and use basic mindfulness technique in postures.

  • Gain a familiarity with Yoga Nidra and its benefits.

The Fire Element (Spring & Summer)

Following a transition between Spring and Summer seasons - the domain of the Earth Element - we enter the next phase of the Summer season (4th May - 20th July). The Fire element is energy at its most expansive and radiant, helping us find what truly fulfils us and to find joy. We are the Elements and so we are the element Fire. Fire is light, dynamic, moving, full of spark, vitality. It is creation and transformation of energy of any kind. To be “on fire” is to be full of excitement about life. To be “all fired up” is to be propelled by enthusiasm about something. Fire is a life principle, just think about the Sun! Fire is creativity and spontaneity in action. Not only it governs four meridians and organ systems instead of two, ALL of the meridians are located on the arms, chest, and shoulder/neck. These are the areas we would explore in the Yin and Restorative postures. A healthy human being needs warmth, love, joy, and compassion, so this immersion is also about exploring the mental emotional qualities of the Fire element through mindfulness, breathing, intention, yoga nidra and mantra. The Fire practices are suitable for practice outside of the Summer season when the Fire energies may be out of balance.

About Restorative Yin Yoga

The essence of Yin and Restorative Yoga is surrender. To balance the heat-building, dynamic, strengthening "yang" side of a Vinyasa Flow or Ashtanga Vinyasa practice, Yin and Restorative Yoga focus on postures that release tension and lengthen the muscles by the means of supported passive holding. In a Yin style, poses are held 3-10 minutes per side in order to release the fascia (the 3-D connective tissue). The Restorative poses use many props (placed according to each individual body) and can be held for 10-15 minutes, but are essentially very similar to Yin. As well as Yoga, the practice draws upon techniques from MFR (Myofascial Release) and Structural Bodywork, as well as the energetics of the Traditional Chinese Meridians and acupressure points. The elasticity of our connective tissue diminishes with physical activity and aging, which makes Yin essential for injury prevention and joint health. Since a Yin Yoga practice often includes several long, seated forward bending postures, it also restores energy and calms the nervous system. Restorative practice initiates deep relaxation of the body, mind and spirit.
