Workshop Description: Our class focus will be to fortify and bring nourishment to our Nervous System! This system is our ally in negotiating daily stress and is quite sensitive to environmental stimuli and overwhelm. We will build flexibility in our Autonomic nervous system with tangible movement exercise tools and energy holds to: Build and replenish energy reserves; Increase sleep & rest function: and support both the digestions of food nourishment and digestion of life's experiences. When our nervous system gets overloaded we move from a place of “ease to dis-ease” and sometimes to a place of "freeze." Our emphasis will be to bring soothing, regeneration, rejuvenation, Energizing and calming to our overall well being physically, emotionally, mentally and energetically.
An emphasis is on listening to our body as a guide while exploring these mind/body relationships. This class is a blend of standing, sitting and lying gentle and dynamic energy holds and exercises to support the balance, flow and alignment of our system. Our last 20 minutes is a restorative energy hold for deep relaxation.
No yoga experience necessary! Beginners are welcome and students who want to work with a deeper energetic subtlety and Mind/Body approach to their movement practice.
