Yin Yoga & the individual treatments explained:
Yin Yoga is a slower-paced, more meditative type of yoga. In Yin Yoga the poses are held for a longer period of time (up to several minutes) to target the connective tissues (such as the ligaments, joints, bones and the deep fascia networks of the body) rather than focusing on the muscles. The poses are held with the muscles fully relaxed, allowing time and gravity to deepen the stretch and target the fascia.
Energetically, Yin Yoga improves the flow of chi that, according to Chinese medicine, runs through the meridian pathways in the connective tissues of the body. Improved flow of chi can improve organ health, immunity, and emotional well-being. It stimulates the self-healing ability of the body. Yin Yoga creates more space in body and mind.
Yoga Nidra is a deep relaxation technique and a type of meditation. While practicing Yoga Nidra you come in a state between sleeping and waking. The body is completely relaxed and the awareness is turned inward by listening to a guided meditation. In practicing Yoga Nidra the deeper layers in the body and the subconsciousness can be reached. Yoga Nidra results in deep relaxation and expands your self-awareness. It stimulates the self-healing ability of the body.
Shiatsu massage (30 or 60 min)
Shiatsu is a Japanese massage technique where pressure is applied especially through the thumbs, fingers and/or hands. It stimulates the body's self-healing capacity, working on physical, mental and emotional balance. Shiatsu massage is performed on a massage table without the need for the patient to undress (comfortable clothing is advised).
Reiki treatment (30 or 60 min)
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. It is done by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. A Reiki treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit. It is a healing technique creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, balance and wellbeing. Reiki supports the selfhealing capacities of the body.
