In this workshop, you will learn how to use the tools of yoga such as breathwork, mindfulness, movement, and meditation to down-regulate your nervous system. We all need to know how to do this because our stress responses are triggered constantly and get stuck in the on position. When you learn how to turn the stress response off, to soothe your nervous system and bring yourself back to a place of rest and restore, then you build resiliency. Resiliency is the ability to withstand and even thrive under the pressures and challenging of life. When we learn how to regulate your nervous system, you are in essence learning how to be in charge of your mind and body. The practices you will learn are invaluable and also really enjoyable. Come learn how to take care of your brain and body, how to practice self-care with love and compassion for yourself. You will leave with a handout of the practices we do so that you can develop a daily practice at home. The workshop will end with a yoga nidra guided meditation with a crystal bowl sound bath to further soothe and nourish your nervous system.
