Restorative Yin & Sound at the USC
Important notice: Activities at the USC during this Pandemic are under strict conditions. Read the Rules and Conditions carefully.
In a demanding society there is often very little space or attention for oneself. This makes us easy targets for stress and exhaustion so that we are distracted from what we truly want, feel or are. That’s why, at the USC, you can participate in a variety of activities to achieve a better balance and coordination between mind and body.
Certain registration rules apply to our group classes and fitness training, which can be found on this page. Read them carefully.

This course is on offer in Unit 1 and 2.
In this course we take relaxation to the next level. During eight weeks, we will travel through our body, finding the places where tension resides and practicing with restorative yin postures to help to let go of this tension. Restorative yin, as the name implies, is a softer, more therapeutic form of yin, which is focussed on healing and restoring our body. In this course, Aurora will teach you different poses that you cannot only enjoy during class, but also take home to practice yourself. Using pillows, bolsters, blocks and blankets, you will be able to find that deep relaxation within yourself.
Every week, we will end the class with a soft, restorative sound bath, in which Aurora will guide you into a deep savasana using the healing power of sound (by using crystal singing bowls, wind chimes, alloy singing bowls and ocean drums).
Note: due to the Corona regulations, please make sure to bring a (big) towel to cover the bolster. If you are able to bring your own blanket, this would be amazing too!
