Feeling stressed, anxious, or like you need to unwind after a big day?
This class will help you downregulate the fight or flight in your nervous system, restore a sense of personal relaxation, and bring your healing functions back on line! Learn how Alternate Nostril Breathing can stimulate the right hemisphere of your brain and induce a parasympathetic response, physically decompress and unwind the stress out of your tissues, and finish up with a ‘Progressive Muscle Relaxation’ technique which has been proven to help improve vagal tone, reduce stress, and release tension from body and mind.
Stress is a part of life, and if received in healthy doses can actually make us more productive, give us a sense of purpose, and help us build strength and resiliency. However, when we are unable to ‘turn off’ our feelings of stress or anxiety, when they become chronic and are present with us most of the time, our nervous system becomes dysregulated, digestion and heart health suffer, immune function is lowered, our hormones are thrown off balance, repair and rejuvenation functions are impeded, our mental and emotional health suffer, and we’re left feeling that life is unsafe and out of our control.
Through practicing this routine, you can empower yourself to take back control of your nervous system and help your nervous system and your life come back into a place of peaceful balance!
