Please join our WhatsApp group using this link for updates: https://chat.whatsapp.com/HWttbOGcdArCbW5QP5Hqoz April hosts this weekly class at our studio in Road Town. We do just over an hour of restorative/yin poses and then follow it with a deeply relaxing sound bath using crystal sound bowls tuned at 432hz. About the sound bath: There is a growing body of research that sound therapy using singing bowls can benefit some mental and physical conditions. For instance, a study published in the Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine in 2016 found that an hour of sound therapy reduced tension, anger, fatigue, and depressed mood in participants. The vibrations from the bowls interrupt thought waves inducing deep relaxation. About Yin Yoga: Yin yoga is often described as a "quiet practice". Poses are held for at least 5 minutes and most all poses are either seated or reclining. Often props such as bolsters, blocks, straps and blankets are used to support the body in poses as needed. I always offer variations and alternatives. In the poses, it is the job of the student to find ease, as best they can, to reduce striving and be as present as possible with the shifting sensations that are occurring in body as they stay in the shape. For many of us, this is mentally challenging. There is a tendency that we all have for wanting things to be different to how they actually are. We want to go deeper, to do better, to compare, to compete. In Yin Yoga we aim to let these tendencies subside and try to bring our body and mind into the awareness of each present moment. This helps to calm the mind, reducing stress and mental fatigue. April has been practicing Yin Yoga since 2003 and teaching it since 2005 - she has a Yin Yoga advanced teaching certification from Norman Blair with whom she studied in London between the years 2003 and 2017. If you wish to read more about Yin Yoga I highly recommend Norman's book: https://www.amazon.com/Brightening-Our-Inner-Skies-Yoga/dp/0995547009
