      It’s not only the mind that needs to grieve, it’s the body as well. Yoga integrates body, mind, and spirit. Grief, our natural response to loss, creates tension not only in the mind, but in the nervous system and the muscles that hold us. This gentle, restorative, and trauma-informed yoga class offers the space for letting go of tension in the body, and in turn, creating greater ease within the mind. Feel a sense of community without having to speak a word, feel physically and emotionally supported, gain a sense of control, peace and acceptance in the aftermath of loss. No prior yoga experience is necessary to participate in this group. We will be using restorative yoga which emphasizes on being mindful and present in the moment rather than technique.

        Join us for this unique & interactive workshop exploring a wide range of stress relief techniques that will leave you fully prepared for the holiday season and beyond!

        Do you ever find yourself overly anxious or worrying unnecessarily?

        Do you wish you had better tools to manage the challenges you encounter?

        The holidays can be a particularly challenging time for some people, with busier schedules and heightened interpersonal/family dynamics. This workshop will give you specific tools to better deal with those difficult situations, whether that’s with work, or around the Thanksgiving dinner table.

        In this class, you will get to:

        ~Calm your nervous system with the deeply relaxing vibrations of various-toned singing bowls

        ~Learn specific tools and techniques you can use in the moment when you feel a wave of stress arise

        ~Learn key nutritional tips to help build resiliency

        ~Experience acupuncture points that target stress, as you bathe in the vibrations of the singing bowls—this is powerful stuff!! (acupuncture points are optional, and varying levels of stimulation without needles will be provided as well)

        ~Enjoy a guided visualization, allowing it all to sink in that much deeper

        Taught by: Chris Goddin & Siri Scull
