What does it mean to rest? This is the question we will explore during this half-day workshop. By delving into the embodied anatomy of the nervous system and ancient restorative practices we will open the possibility of better understanding our individual rest responses. Finding and creating practices that we can use in our everyday lives for seeking balance and restoration. Each of us will have a different way to find relaxation - there is no 'right' way to relax.
After two long years of covid many of our bodies are less balanced, less 'regulated' and possibly quite stressed. More than ever, we need an opportunity to seek pathways for restoration in order to regain energy, connection and peace.
And what better time to gather in a practice of rest than midwinter? A time when latent energy is at its most potent and all things are hibernating preparing for spring. It is a time for regenerative practices.
What you can expect:
*Gentle movement to connect us to our nervous systems (as they are now)
*Invitational somatic scan
*Workbook and discussion for generating embodied knowledge of rest
*Restorative yoga practice
All are welcome, practices will be accessible and varied for each body.
