Yin Yoga with Sound Massages and Tuning Forks
HOW IT FEELS
We will start the class with some pranayama (breathing tecniques) to arrive in the space.
This will be followed by a yin yoga journey designed to say goodbye to the fire element of summer to then approach more grounding, calming poses to welcome autumn and the slowing down in pace. In yin yoga, a pose is held up to 3-6 minutes.
Each pose has a rebound in between of a few minutes. A rebound means bringing the body in a neutral position to benefit from the asana you just practiced. In these moments you will enjoy a variety of massages performed either with singing bowls on your body or tuning forks. These massages induce more grounding, calm and reinforce the energy flow (chi) in your body.
The session will end in a calming and relaxing yoga nidra meditation (30-40min), to integrate your experience.
Tea and snacks for after class will be provided.
Allow yourself to detach from your thoughts, fully relax, by diving into your body’s different layers and by activating your consciousness through the senses. Yoga nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full awareness. In a world where the mind is always busy on the to dos, this practice will have the benefits of reducing stress, anxiety and calm the monkey mind. This systematic method of relaxation has been proven to be as recharging as 4 hours of sleep.
Gina (Yin Yoga/Yoga Nidra/Sound Healing)
Gina has stumbled upon all things Yoga and meditation in 2015, while googling methods to improve sleeping patterns, as she has the tendency to be quite a night owl, you know… Her practice made her build trust into the various processes of life, the low and the high rides, guiding her out of places of grief and a burn out. She has travelled extensively for the past 10 years, and let the practice shape her journeys around the world. She made it her mission to show in her teachings that it’s OK to slow down, it’s even necessary, in order to evolve and grow. She is a certified yoga teacher and merges her classes with yoga nidra, shamanic sound healing, tuning forks and yin yoga. Gina has been working in the CBD industry since 2017, founding the first plant medicine infused classes in Zurich two years later, sharing her deep knowledge about it with the aim to take away people’s potential fear about the plant, and encouraging an intuitive use of natural remedies for a deeper practice, pain management or anxiety relief. In 2021, Gina has expanded her studies by attending an additional advanced yoga nidra training and by going more in depth on the use of tuning forks.
