DESCRIPTION Focus Sleep
This sleep centric workshop caters to those who have a hard time falling asleep, those who have restless sleeping patterns, as well as those who might oversleep, yet do not feel restored or rested. We will focus on learning how to get your body and mind prepared for a sound sleep by softening and releasing the various tensions, stagnations and agitation that have built up throughout your day.
The goal is to create and foster the proper conditions to receive a restorative night’s sleep:
I will be teaching simple yet effective stretches that you can do before going to bed, aimed at hydrating your joints and relaxing your muscles, providing inner nourishment and deep relaxation at the level of the body.
I will also share some specific breathing techniques and meditative practices that you you’ll be able to do in your bed whenever you need it, providing internal comfort and peace at the level of the mind.
As usual, my therapeutic yoga workshops series are not designed as quick fixes or magic solutions. The goal is rather to give you the appropriate yoga tools to take home with you, so that with regular practice and a little bit of discipline, you can reap the full benefit desired.
Yalda Younes is a certified yoga teacher from the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai (500+ hours), India, where yoga is mainly taught one-on-one as per the Krishnamacharya lineage. The strength of this method is the ability of the teacher to use appropriately, safely and intelligently different tools of yoga to adapt them to each individual, rather than asking the individual to accommodate herself/himself to a fixed idea of yoga.
However that doesn’t mean that one-on-one is the only way of learning yoga. When teaching in a group setting, Yalda gives personal care and attention to every individual in the group, while at the same time fostering a sense of community and generating an environment that is supportive and comfortable.
Yalda Younes is also a contemporary flamenco dancer who has taught dance for over 2 decades hundreds of students in Lebanon and France, an experience which rewarded her with refined body awareness, sharpened observation skills and empathetic pedagogical methods.
