Yin & Nidra Yoga is for you.
Hi, I’m Narelle. As a PE teacher & wellness coach I know the importance of staying healthy both mentally & physically.
As a mum of two children, one who was diagnosed with autism 3 years ago I’ve come to understand the importance of REST and making sure my cup is full to be able to continue to hold space for my son and the rest of my family.
I’ve practiced yoga for over 20 years. I started to practice Yin & Nidra Yoga three years ago for its restful benefits and to heal my mind and body after living in constant stress mode. I completed my teacher training in Yin & Nidra yoga last year. Over the past 12 months, I’ve been sharing my knowledge and passion of REST and Yin & Nidra in regular classes in Geelong and online.
The Yin yoga sessions are perfect for all levels of fitness and abilities. Whether you’re starting out, have an injury or have practiced before I’ll give you options to make sure the practice is safe.
Yin Yoga is a quiet practice that slows down movement and focuses on a spiritual connection with your mind and body.
Yin Yoga involves holding deep poses (shapes) for longer periods of time. A pose may last a minute or 2, or even up to 5 minutes. By holding shapes your body’s tissues lengthen and release, leaving your muscles feeling as though they have been relaxed or massaged.
This practice can improve your range of motion and help strengthen and heal reoccurring injuries. Yin Yoga can correct habitual posture problems, leaving you balanced and in control. It also releases stress, worry and unease.
The slow movements encourage you to sit with your emotions and learn to accept them. The stillness in Yin Yoga is meditative and restorative. It offers a chance to connect to your mind, body and spirit.
Yoga Nidra is a sleep-based, conscious GUIDED 20 minute meditation. I promise it will feel like 10 minutes. Your body sleeps while your mind is awake taking in the guided instructions. It’s complete REST for both your mind and body.
Nidra Yoga is a great way to let your body rest and balance your rest-activity cycle. You get all the benefits of meditation, as well as sleep.
Practicing Yoga Nidra for just 20-minutes is equivalent rest for your body to an extra 2 hours of sleep. Getting to sleep and staying asleep is also improved with a regular Yoga Nidra practice.
If you’d like gentle movement and sleep based meditation to help you feel calmer, stronger and more connected with your mind, body & spirit then
