In our world, our sympathetic nervous system are incessantly on high alert, overriding our ability to return to a peaceful state. Long term, this stress on your nervous system not only robs you of being happy and present, but often leads to serious health issues.* Your sympathetic nervous system will take the lead for as long as necessary to get you through danger, but past traumas and constant stimulation don't allow our bodies to ever fully relax. This class allows your parasympathetic nervous system to return to balance and calm, allowing space for the joy and creativity you deserve.
In this class, we focus on our breath, intention, calming all the reflexive muscles that are part of the fight or flight system, mental perspective, physical and emotional safety, and appropriate-for-the-individual alignment. Your neck, shoulders, and hips will get lots of attention. You will find peace and calm during class, feeling both lighter and grounded post-class. Every class ends with a guided meditation and significant shavasana, or rest period.
