The Art of Chilling Out
Jan 24, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm| $30 Early | $35 Day Of
Your nervous system is a collection of several individual systems that regulate your body’s voluntary and involuntary actions. Within this complex network of nerves exists the autonomic nervous system, which works as your body’s natural gas and brake system. The body has evolved to physically process and react to stress, but has not yet evolved to deal with stress on a chronic level. And today, unfortunately, many of us are experiencing chronic levels of stress.
In this two-hour workshop, we’ll discuss the causes of stress, the body’s response, and how various poses—both active and restorative—affect the body. We will end with a full hour exploring restorative pranayama, supported poses, and the practice of Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep.
A dedicated yoga practice can be a fantastic toolbox for stress management. The Art of Chilling workshop is for anybody looking to create or expand theirs.
