Yoga to Soothe the Nervous System Workshop
Take some time out amidst this busy and hectic life to pierce the chatter of the mind, ease tension in the body, and find an integrated-balanced sense of being. You will soothe the nervous system with restorative postures. Use slow breath centric movement to burn off excess tension and cultivate a sense of groundedness in the present. To close practice, you will be guided through an extended yoga nidra practice to offer a deep sense of inner relaxation and tap into new sources of energy.
