Yin Yoga with Laurence Chehab-Fabry

  • Tuesday, 7 September, 18:00 - 18:45

For most of us,  the current times rhyme with a hectic daily life. Work, couple life, family, friends, hobbies, overloaded plannings, it is not uncommon that we no longer even take the time to connect with ourselves and to rest. It is however essential for our body, our mind and especially for our nervous system, to release the pressure of everyday life, breathe and relax.

Yin Yoga is precisely the activity that will allow you to refocus on your well-being, to find more serenity. The deep stretches, slow and long held poses encourage you to be mindful of your body and mind and to relax in full awareness. You will feel a mental and physical calming effect, welcome in a society that suggests us to always be on the move. Your energy will just find a better balance.

In a studio setting, accessories (blocks, bolsters, straps ...) are often used to help hold the poses with no counterproductive resistance. If you own some of these usual yoga accessories, keep them handy for our meeting. If not, let’s be creative and look at all objects around us with curiosity to find the best suitable: pillows, sofa cushions, pants belt, a pile of books,… will be of great assistance.

Meet Laurence on the mat for this relaxing and restorative YIN YOGA practice.

  • Certified Yoga instructor in 2013, Laurence trained for more than 700 hours in Asia and elsewhere and was particularly blessed to deepen her understanding of Yin yoga & Meditation with Sarah Powers and Jo Phee. She has been teaching regular weekly classes in several yoga studios since 2014, in Geneva since 2018.
