Winter Solstice Mindful Yoga, relaxation & Yoga Nidra

  • Skelsmergh Community Hall (map)

Tuesdays* 6.45 - 8.15pm
Skelsmergh Hall, Kendal, LA9 6NX

In our last class before the Christmas break there will be restorative yoga and an extended yoga nidra to help you feel rested and ready for the holidays.

Nes Bear shares a yoga practice which helps to reintegrate body, breath and mind. to develop strength and ease in the body and relieve stress and tension. 

What makes this yoga practice different from going to the gym or a fitness class is that the movements are intended to encompass more than physicality. The class will help to increase strength and flexibility — but done in a way that also encourages useful patterns of thought and behaviour. Without struggling or straining or striving. Instead body and breath will be calm, balanced and measured without self-judgement.

The class will help you to attain daily body and mind function with the breath as our guide- to help you be able to safely and easily tie your shoes, pick up your child, reach the jar on the high shelf, to get up and down from the floor easily, to stay calm and focused under stress. A practice that incorporates various natural movements, yogic mindfulness and breathing exercises will prepare you to be able whenever you need it — at home, at work, on the road or in an emergency.

All classes end with a relaxation. Poses, movements and sequences will be given with variations depending on what suits your body and mind that day. All poses and sequences will be done with the breath as guide in order to support the spine and promote relaxation.

All abilities and bodies welcome
