February 20 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Thursday, repeating until Saturday, October 31, 2020
“I’m Nicky Edgar a qualified Yin and Vinyasa Yoga Aligned Teacher and have started Yin classes on Thursday evenings at the Paekakariki Memorial Hall at 6.30pm.
I teach a modified Yin yoga class, this usually consists of longer held passive poses (asana) that mainly work the lower half of our body, with a combination of gentle flow movements with our breath. Each class starts with a meditation and pranayama (breath) and finishes in a wonderful savasana to completely let go and restore.
I have found that this combination strengthens, lengthens and restores our whole body. With the use of props: straps, bolsters, blankets and blocks, students can modify the poses to suit their own individual bodies. Whether you are a beginner yogi or more experienced or recovering from an injury you get the benefit of each asana.
Yin and Tonic: a calm, quiet space for the body, mind and spirit.
50 Shades of Yin: using straps to bind us in the poses to get deeper into the connective tissue.
Yin and Restore: with the assistance of bolsters and blankets to restore and help re-connect ourselves with our mind, body and spirit.
Yin and Yang: the first half of class is more yang in nature, flowing sequences that elevate our heart rate, only to unwind at the back end of the session with a yin sequence. (Note: this class is not available at the Paekakariki Class)
All sessions the sequencing is intelligent, working the body in a way that is safe and not injurious.
My aim is that students come away feeling centred, better listeners to their own needs and wiser as they get to know themselves better from the inside out.
Classes resume on Thursday 16th January 2020. This first class of the year is a Koha donation. Following classes $12 per session. I will offer a 10 session card for $100, this can be paid into my bank account and you will be issued a ticket.
All levels welcome and bring your own mat please.
