4 week online training
Restorative & Slow Flow
As the light dissipates, our bodies are called to slow down, even as the world outside keeps moving in frenetic laps.
Over four weeks, we’ll drop into body, mind, spirit to find the spaces between effort and surrender. By making space to slow down and find stillness, we allow our system to release into its great integrative power.
- Ways to replenish the nervous system
- Practices to move out of the fight or flight cyclical response and learn to nourish adrenals
- Slow and fluid sequences to cultivate sustainable power from the inside out
- Restorative postures that can be woven into your practice and teachings
- Meditation to refill mind, body, spirit
- Pranayama to balance hormone levels
- Chanting to awaken your hearts longing
- Ways to integrate introspective movement into personal practice and teaching
Throughout the course, we’ll explore conscious relaxation and what it is to cultivating a deep, inner stillness. Through this stillness, we have the opportunity to deepen our understanding of what guides our actions.
Each week, a new module will be released. You can watch the videos in that module on your own schedule.
- Introductory week: Preparation, Props, and Course Overview
