It’s all about balance! Celebrate the upcoming equal split between day and night with this graceful balancing and grounding practise. Come and spend with us truly nourishing afternoon at the Yoga Nest.
The Autumn Equinox like Yoga itself is a point of union and balance between the Light and the Dark, between the more active and passive, between the Yang and the Yin. We will be moving from the Yang, Fire- active summer to the more passive, Yin Autumn.
A mini yoga retreat where you will indulge wiith fellow yoga students in Special Yang and Yin Yoga flow, Pranayma (breathing exercises) and Yoga Nidra practise ( the ultimate relaxation practice). You should expect to leave the studio feeling grounded, rejuvenated and completly relaxed.

Sun 16 September 2018 13:00 – 15:00
New lunch time classes at Old Street Gallery
12.00-13.00 Yang and Yin Flow
Join us for this beautiful union of yang and yin, effort and surrender.
The yang comes before the yin in this rejuvenating yoga practice. Nadia will get you moving and building heat through a few sun salutations and flowing practise then takes your warm body into some deep yin stretches for the hips, back and legs. Longer holds will allow you to go deeper into poses and increase both your strength and flexibility. As a result, we become more flexible, our joints become “juicier,” and energy blocks are removed, allowing the organs to function better. And as the prana works on the nervous system too, we become not only calmer but also more focused.
About the styles:
When these terms are applied to yoga, Yin Yoga is a slower practice where poses are passively held for longer, working on the deep, dense (Yin) connective tissues in the body which are difficult to energize and open. Yang styles of yoga are those with rhythm and repetition like Vinyasa Flow.
13.15 -14.00 Anti Desk Yoga
Anti Desk lunchtime class will be the best time of your day.
This yoga class is specially tailored to release the build up tensions of working in a office. A gentle yoga flow which looses the whole body especially the shoulders, neck, hips areas. We will be working on improving the posture,
lengthening the muscles, strengthening the mind by using a combination of breath and movement which will allow you to completely let go from the office and clear your mind.Expect to leave the class relaxed, calm and fully rejuvenated.
Great Yoga Nidra sessions and yoga for the office. fully recommended.
Nadia is our corporate instructor for a group of between 5 and 15 employees. We absolutely love her, she is a great instructor, giving people at different levels different poses, and she is really funny and lovely lady.
Expect to leave the class relaxed, recharged and calm.
IN THE SPOTLIGHT REVIEW:
The retreat in Andalusia is such a calm, relaxing & beautiful place in the Spanish mountains. Amazing views all round, surrounded by avocado, Lemon, Olives & many other fruits trees.
Nadia held classes at sunrise & sunset on the terrace & the only sound you could hear was the bird song.
There is also surreal & cool indoor Yoga studio with all the mats & equipment.
We ate tasty/nutritional home cooked vegetarian meals. Water is collected from the natural stream that runs through the mountains.
A place you will want to visit again & again.
I have been twice, hope to go next year too
