CULTIVATING CALM

with Holly Harman

Escape the daily hustle and join Holly for a calming and restorative workshop to explore yin yoga, yoga nidra meditation and tips on how to reduce stress in our lives.


Yin yoga is about finding stillness in the body. Longer, static holds enable us to access yin tissue – fascia and connective tissue. On a mental and emotional level, the practice allows the body to drop down into the parasympathetic nervous system, and therefore becomes deeply healing and nourishing. Yoga nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful and accessible meditation technique that focuses on cultivating multiple levels of well-being.


To round it off, the workshop will explore coping mechanisms and ways to reduce stress we can integrate into our daily lives.
