Full Description

Let go of your to-do list and incorporate self-care into your life, to generate the energy you need to live your life fully. Refresh your practice, cultivate confidence and self-acceptance, and learn powerful tools for balance and connection with your true self. This highly experiential workshop presents the ways that simple, non-competitive yoga practices can be targeted to reduce chronic tension, and systematically relax the physical body, the emotional body, and the mind. We explore the lesser-known gem of yoga, breathwork, which plays an essential role in grounding the body and quieting the busy mind. Through a unique sequence of deep stretches, coordinated with breath, you will nourish and balance the body and calm the mind. We will end the workshop with a progressive relaxation practice—Yoga Nidra—the antidote for lifestyle stress. Once you’ve experienced it, you can take home hands-on self-care skills to balance, restore, and tap into new sources of energy.

In this experiential workshop, you will learn techniques to help:

• reduce stress and anxiety
• increase vitality and well-being
• address chronic tension and pain
• soothe the nervous system and reduce insomnia
• develop sustainable and holistic self-care

Perfect for beginning and experienced students alike, this workshop is highly inclusive and open to anyone. No previous experience is necessary.

Yoga Nidra is a research-based transformative practice of deep relaxation and meditative inquiry often translated as yogic sleep. It is a yoga practice that focuses on systematic relaxation of the body while the mind enters a state of deep, meditative awareness—like dreaming while fully awake. In this ultra-relaxed state of consciousness, the mind is focused, fully alert, and receptive, as the body releases into the physiological relaxation response where deep healing, regeneration and rejuvenation can happen.
