This is a unique opportunity to experience Yoga Tune Up therapy balls self-massage in the safe and supportive ambience of a restorative yoga class with the psychobiological perspective of Somatic Experiencing.
We will journey into our body and nervous system, to create regulation, de-stress, relax and reset our energies to feel resourceful and empowered.
Relaxation is a very important ingredient in our lives, but we don’t give it enough attention. There is an art to it, because, unlike a nap, the properties of relaxation done mindfully, paying attention to sensations, it’s a bottom up approach to healing from trauma and regulating the nervous system.
There is a whole lot of research about the benefits of working with the body with gentle, supportive and precise proprioceptive-interoceptive care, regulating our hormones and vagal tone.
Here is one of my favorite lists of reasons to aim towards a regulated system that Irene Lyon created:
A healthy human system tends to:
-Come down from stress naturally.
-Go to sleep peacefully and wake-up in the morning feeling rested and refreshed.
-Absorb healthy nutrition for all the cellular needs (think about cells in your gut sucking up the good vitamins and minerals) and also excrete toxic waste products (um, poop!) with ease and frequency.
-Repair and regenerate your cells and body tissue at a harmonious speed that isn’t too slow and isn’t too fast, but is JUST right for your own unique needs.
-Think and create with crystal clear focus and not always be stuck in a ‘brain-fog’.
-Be productive in the projects, work and tasks you do on any given day.
-Steer away from harmful people who create chaos and strife in your life.
-Parent with greater ease, better boundaries and more empathy (even in those really tough times)!
-Engage in meaningful relationships that nurture and provide safety for you.
