Welcome deep calm and reset your nervous system with this restorative practice. We will begin with a few gentle Yin Yoga poses followed by Yoga Nidra. Yin Yoga is a slow paced yoga that is mostly done on the mat. Each pose is held for a few minutes, targeting the connective tissue and joints. Yoga Nidra is done in savasana and includes a series of guided meditations to lull your body into awakened sleep.

It's an invitation to detach from daily troubles and full release into deep relaxation. We will end the practice with some short journaling and tea.

Dress comfy and bring a journal. All props are provided and all levels welcome.
