NOTE: THIS CLASS IS RESCHEDULED FROM THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11th, DUE TO TROPICAL STORM MICHAEL.
Along with a gentle movement practice, this Inner Balance class will lead you through guided meditation and visualization as tools to help combat stress, anxiety and other forms of tension. Negative thoughts and worry, if not dealt with, can weaken your physical state and make you more susceptible to various physical challenges. Relaxation techniques such as Imagery and meditation visualization are designed to release brain chemicals that act as natural tranquilizers, naturally assisting the body in lowering blood pressure, reducing heart rate and decreasing anxiety and stress. Come learn simple tools you can use to improve your mind, body and spirit every day!
Stress is a modern-day epidemic; iRest (Yoga Nidra, “the yoga of sleep”) is a relaxing technique that promotes healthy physical changes that can keep stress in check. Studies show that high levels of stress lead to a weakened immune system and other physical and mental health issues. This Yoga Nidra practice will introduce you to a deep state of restful awareness, with a focus on releasing tension in the body and obtaining relief from mental and physical manifestations of stress. No previous yoga experience is necessary. Register at the class.
