Join Sheri and Kat for this 2 part series to learn techniques and yogic philosophies to help you manage the day to day stress and calm your nervous system so that you can function at an optimal state every day. Our goal is for you to leave this workshop feeling balanced, calm and with new tools under your belt to take home with you.
Sheri will guide you through a series of poses using 3 sizes of Tune Up Fitness balls that directly impact the muscular and connective tissue systems. An effective method of conscious relaxation is accessed through compressing and straining these systems with the therapeutic balls which directly affects the nervous system helping to elicit a deep relaxation response. With specific placement of the Tune Up Balls and diaphragmatic breath techniques we are able to lull the nervous system into parasympathetic dominance from sympathetic drive hence moving our being into profound relaxation.
Kat will bring in the ancient yogic philosophies of the Yamas and Niyamas. Yoga is so much more than a physical practice, it is a way of living and we can think of the Yamas and Niyamas as guidelines, ethical disciplines and observances to help us live the most fulfilled and balanced life. Unlike many other guides to ethical conduct they are not meant to limit us from living life, but rather open life up to us. Joy is our birthright and we can cultivate more of it into our day to day.
The sanskrit word Yamas directly translates into the word “restraints” and includes non-violence, truthfulness, non stealing, non excess and non possessiveness. The direct translation of Niyamas is “observances” and includes purity, contentment, self-discipline, self-study and surrender.
By mastering the practices of the Yamas we will notice time freeing up and suddenly feeling as if we have more room to breathe. The day to day starts to feel lighter and easier, everything becomes more enjoyable and our relationships with ourselves and others feel more harmonic. As we dive deeper into the practices of the Niyamas we are able to move into a subtle realm, a place that feels like home, a place where we can not be disturbed and we feel at peace with ourselves and the world around us.
During the workshop we will explore the above mentioned practices via intention setting, physical practice with Tune Up Fitness balls, meditation, and customised Yoga Nidra. The fusion of yogic philosophy and addressing accumulated life stress in our physical being has the potential for acknowledging emotions that are locked in our tissues. When we allow the emotions of our life experience a pathway out of our body we directly affect the state of our whole being by gently shifting into the true meaning of peace.
