Xenia Pestova Headshot Oct 2019

Xenia Pestova Bennett

Xenia creates bespoke sessions to calm and balance anxiety and stress, including with yin yoga and qi gong

Summer Evening Yin Yoga for Organ Health

This block of online Zoom sessions combines classic held yin poses with breathwork and Qi Gong approaches, introducing traditional meridian theory practices in order to access deeper organ health. We will work on loading and activating deep tissues in our bodies through sequences of calming and grounding exercises. The sessions are especially designed to balance our nervous systems, elicit our "relaxation response" and enhance energy circulation, blending in approaches geared towards detoxifying and strengthening inner organs.

Time: Wednesdays 8, 15, 22 and 29 July, 6:15-7:15pm

Cost: £20 for all four sessions
