Yoga this Saturday!
Weekly yoga practice to complement your training, designed to improve flexibility and boost recovery. Suitable for all levels, complete beginners welcome.
Every 4 weeks, yoga at Thames includes a form of guided relaxation. This Saturday
Christine will take you through a practice of yoga nidra, also known as ‘yogic sleep’. Yoga nidra can be described as the state of consciousness that lies between wakefulness and sleeping. The practice usually begins with a body scan and specific breathing in order to trigger the body’s relaxation response, which is key for optimum recovery. Yoga nidra also includes imagery and/or visualisation to tap into the feeling state of the mind. As you drop more and more deeply into a state of ‘lucid sleeping’, your brainwaves begin to change. Brain activity and thought frequency slow down, giving both the body and the mind an opportunity to recharge – a perfect opportunity to finish your training week and set you up for the week ahead!
