About the event
Stress gets stuck in our bodies. We often try to use cognitive strategies to "think" away our response to difficult and challenging life experiences. This often causes us to keep replaying the stressful circumstances in our mind and makes things worse! What often helps the most is helping our bodies to complete the stress response cycle - so that our bodies return to a regulated state after stress.
This workshop will focus on physical practices to help you release built up stress in the body, and provide an understanding of the stress cycle and how to complete it. Creating a practice over time that honours the role of your body in the stress cycle, and how to return it to equilibrium, will help to build your capacity and resilence to stress. This workshop will bring all of the previous four workshops together to create a "nervous system practice" that strengthens the parasympathetic (calming) response of the body.
This one and a half-hour class draws on principles of neuroscience, mindfulness and the science of the subconscious. You will learn about how your body and brain operate, including how to master your nervous system so that you can more quickly and easily interrupt and recover from stress.
It will include mindfulness and nervous system techniques that you can integrate into your every day life. Each session will also include a deep rest immersion, which uses guided visualization & a calming sensory environment to guide your brain into a state of rest, while resetting your neural pathways for calm, presence & peace.
