For all levels; no yoga experience required.
The patterns of anxiety, insomnia, PTSD, and chronic stress are wired into us by the mind, brain, and body. The gateway to pattern change is the autonomic nervous system, which links closely with the belly brain, immune system, and connective tissue matrix. Learn to create balance in these systems through breathing exercises, mindful yoga, postural tools, deep tissue work, and restorative poses, and explore how to balance the nervous system, quiet the mind, energize the body, regulate emotions, and develop stress resilience.
In this workshop, you also learn
- The neural principles that underlie progressive change
- The three key ways to build stress resilience
- How your enteric nervous system is a game-changer in emotional balance
- A template for creating your own therapeutic practice
- How to turn on your emotional “dimmer switch.”
