What is Yin Yoga?

 

Yin Yoga is a quiet and contemplative practice that incorporates principles of traditional Chinese medicine with poses (asanas). All poses are floor-based (this means lying or sitting down) and are held for longer periods, between 3-5 minutes or longer. 

 

Yin yoga helps stretching and lengthening beyond the muscles into tissues, such as our connective tissue (fascia). It improves flexibility, boosts circulation and reduces stress levels that will help you find deep relaxation and sleep at the end of your day.

What is auricular acupuncture?

Auricular acupuncture dates back to approx. 427BC and is a technique that uses points on the ear to bring about changes

in the body.

In this session we will be using the NADA protocol which involves the placement of up to five small, sterilised, disposable needles into the following points on the ear:

Sympathetic - to calm,

Shen Men - to reduce anxiety,

Kidney - to calm fear,

Liver - for detox,

Lung - for letting go.

The NADA protocol has been proven to help:

Addiction and substance misuse

Post-traumatic stress syndrome

 

Mental health

Anxiety management and panic disorder

Smoking cessation

Weight loss

The immune system

Calm the central nervous system
