Nourish: Restorative & Slow Flow (4 Weeks)
Amidst the business of life, we need to learn how to pause and find moments for conscious relaxation. To make time to rest the body and the whole being—nourishing the adrenals, soothing the nervous system—allowing for restoring and re-balancing.
Over three weeks, we’ll drop into body, mind, spirit to find the spaces between effort and surrender. By making space to slow down and find stillness, we allow our system to release into its great integrative power.
Throughout the course, we’ll explore conscious relaxation and what it is to cultivate a deep, inner stillness. Through this stillness, we have the opportunity to deepen our understanding of what guides our actions.
In the Nourish Workshop we will Explore:
- Ways to replenish the nervous system
- Practices to move out of the fight or flight cyclical response and learn to nourish adrenals
- Slow and fluid sequences to cultivate sustainable power from the inside out
- Restorative postures that can be woven into your practice and teachings
- Meditation to refill mind, body, spirit
- Ways to integrate introspective movement into personal practice and teaching
