For 75 minutes Lily will take you slowly through a deep Yin Yoga practice to restore Qi (chi) energy flow throughout the body, then transitioning into a relaxing Restorative Yoga practice which unwinds deep tensions helping you slowly let go of stress.
David will then guide you through a 30 minute Yoga Nidra practice—known as yogic sleep—a meditation and conscious relaxation practice that induces total physical, mental, and emotional relaxation.
Lily will open and close the evening with traditional Chinese music played on the Guzheng, accompanying the Yoga Nidra relaxing guided meditation to finish the evenign.
