About The Event
Heart Coherence Breathwork
This popular breathing technique offers more detail about the ways that breathing exercises promote relaxation. With the help of biofeedback, the approach attempts to coordinate breathing with heart rate, slowing and steadying breathing to slow and stabilize the heartbeat.
The method was developed based on the understanding that slow, deep breathing increases the activity of the vagus nerve, a part of the parasympathetic nervous system; the vagus nerve controls and also measures the activity of many internal organs. When the vagus nerve is stimulated, calmness pervades the body: the heart rate slows and becomes regular; blood pressure decreases; muscles relax. When the vagus nerve informs the brain of these changes, it, too, relaxes, increasing feelings of peacefulness. Thus, the technique works through both neurobiological and psychological mechanisms.
About Yin Yoga
Yin Yoga stretches and targets both the deep connective tissues between the muscles and the fascia throughout the body. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility as the poses stretch and exercise the bone and joint areas. It also helps us to regulate the body's flow of energy.
Yin Yoga is a beautiful deliecious practice that helps us heal both our heart and out mind. It allows us time to sit within ourselves, to just be still and to notice what the body and mind are telling us.
It differs from Vinyasa Yoga yet is the perfect complement! By having a Yin and a Yang yoga practice, you are creating a beautiful balance within your energy systems and a unique sense of calmness you will feel both physically and mentally.

No matter what your age, meditation is one of the easiest ways to improve your health. Research at the Medical
College of Georgia found that meditation lowered blood pressure and reduced the risk of heart disease and stroke.
Additional studies have demonstrated meditation can reduce chronic pain, decrease levels of stress and pain in
cancer patients, and reduce symptoms in patients with fibromyalgia.
Other studies have indicated meditation may reduce the levels of cortisol, a hormone that in high levels can weaken the immune system and slow down healing. Results from a small study conducted in 1998 with patients suffering from psoriasis lesions indicated meditation can speed up the body’s natural healing process. Some studies have even suggested meditation can help in the prevention of Alzheimer’s Disease.
