Friday 29 June, 8.15 - 9.45pm
Join us for a 90 minute yin yoga practice with the beautiful sounds of the Cello and the Indian Dilruba, played live by Chendo. To compliment the cello and dilruba, Carolyn will lead a yin yoga practice focused on the heart. Chendo will also weave through ambient electronic sounds to make this a one of a kind set. The combination of long, deep yin holds and live musical magic is pretty mind-blowing. It might cause emotions to arise - allow them to come. When we release we relax. It will be a journey.

Yin yoga promotes the healthy flow of energy along the bodies meridian lines (energy channels), in a similar (but less extreme) way to accupuncture. This yin sequence is designed to encourage the flow of healthy heart chi, or energy, around the body. When heart chi/energy is balanced we feel full of vitality, able to enjoy healthy relationships and experience inner peace and harmony. When heart chi is out of balance we can feel sadness and joylessness.
Our bodies respond to the relaxing tones of the dilruba and the cello on a physiological level. Science shows relaxing ambient music can reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol. This reduces muscular tension in the body, and enables us to release and relax into the postures and into healing relaxation.
During the practice you will be guided into meditation and invited to drop into your heart consciousness. Allowing yourself this time and space often leads to insights into the self, and enables deep healing to take place.
Bring warm socks and comfy clothes you can stretch in. Mats, bolsters and blankets all provided.
