About Yoga for Sleep
Yin yoga is a practice of deep embodiment, observation and re-patterning. The poses are experienced for a longer length of time (from three minutes upwards) allowing for gentle, lasting change to happen on a deep level both in the physical as well as the emotional and energetic body. Each pose is carefully sequenced and guided within the comfort limit of the practitioner who is always encouraged to honour their body, as such this is an accessible practice for all who attend and perfect for those who want to unwind from their day and enjoy a great nights sleep.
Given Yin Yoga is a nourishing, quieter and slower paced practice please have plenty of props to support you. Typically a bolster, Yoga blocks and blanket would be used but you can improvise with cushions, pillows, thick books and towels.
