Stretch, relax… and purrrrr like a kitten

sleeping-cat2

In the Stretch and Relax class (Tuesdays Preston 8 – 9) our class will have a focus on ‘Aspects of the Cat’ from stretching like a tabby after a nap to roaring like a lion (some snoring like a little kitten is included too)!  This session is designed to stretch out the body in calming and detoxifying ways in order to bring the mind and body into harmony and balance prior to a guided relaxation called Yoga Nidra – which is known as ‘yogic sleep’.  This method of relaxation is very therapeutic and even 15 minutes (which is all we have time for in class) is remarkably rejuvenating.  We always finish with some ‘wake up stretches’ to ensure that we all leave the class feeling refreshed.
