Yin Stretch and Yoga Nidra Workshop in Bonita
Registered Yoga Teacher Bob Newman will conduct a Yin Stretch and Yoga Nidra workshop from 6:30 to 8 p.m., August 4, at Integrative Mindfulness, in Bonita Springs. Yin Yoga is a slow-paced, meditative style with poses, or asana, that are held for longer periods —often five minutes or more per pose—that apply gentle, sustained stretching to increase circulation and improve flexibility. Yoga nidra is an ancient systematic form of guided visualization and relaxation that includes sleep improvement and a profound sense of joy.
Since undergoing an angioplasty and two stents in 2012 after cardiologists found his main coronary artery was 97 percent blocked, the 73-year-old has completed several rigorous yoga teacher trainings and credits yoga and a healthy lifestyle for his fitness, happiness and passion for helping others. He has dedicated his life to raising awareness about yoga and the practice’s ability to aid in recovery from illness and transform lives.
