In this class, we will practice in the most traditional style of Yoga, from which we will embrace the essence of Yoga, initiating movements from the inside out, waking up the energetic, emotional and mental body, with elements from the ancient art of Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga. This is a holistic practice that includes Pranayama (breathwork) and Asanas (body postures), with Elli guiding us through the benefits of each Asana, explaining what's happening in our body in real time. The practice closes with an ultimately relaxing Yoga Nidra.
Yoga Nidra, which means “yogic sleep” in Sanskrit, is a deeply restorative meditation-based Yoga technique, done lying down, which gives the opportunity to ground, revitalise and restore physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. You will be guided and supported to experience an alert, yet profoundly relaxed state. It is said 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra is as restorative as 3 hours sleep! The science of Yoga Nidra involves a change in the pattern of your brain waves, in particular the alpha and theta waves, which will be trained during each session. With consistent practice, the altered brainwave function ultimately leads to a stress-free life and a liberated way of being. Healing Indian Mantras and melodies of Indian singing bowls will be guiding us through relaxation. This practice is highly recommended for those suffering from stress, anxiety, insomnia, trauma and fatigue
