Nervous System Care: Embodied Resources

If you have been feeling stressed, anxious or overwhelmed by all that is going on in our local and global communities, you’re not alone. While there may be a lot we cannot change, we can have some say in how we are showing up for ourselves, and in turn, our loved ones and our community at large.

 

Join me for for this virtual workshop hosted by Three Moon Collective to increase understanding of how our nervous systems function, so we can also shift how we relate and respond to ourselves in the face of stress. Equipped with accessible and adaptable tools, we can establish greater self-regulation, build resiliency and even find calm within the storm.

In this workshop, you will walk away with:

  • Foundational understanding of the nervous system and Polyvagal Theory

  • How to “map” your nervous system

  • Somatic tools to soothe anxiety and stress, support nervous system regulation and build resiliency

 

Our time together will also incorporate group check-ins, personal reflection and an all levels movement practice to encourage the grounding and centering of our nervous systems.

Restorative Yoga for Anxiety

 

Next Series: TBD

 

Unwind and soothe your nervous system in this 6 - week restorative yoga series specifically designed to ground and support your anxiety. Each session will offer tools for cultivating a deeper sense of calm and ease within your body and in your daily life. Research has shown that restorative yoga can help to:

 

  • lower cortisol and create a buffer for chronic stress

  • soothe the nervous system

  • boost the immune system

  • restore muscle and brain function

  • support digestion which in turn supports mood regulation

  • reduce stress and anxiety

 

Each session will include gentle movement to warm up the body and encourage blood flow as well as restorative postures to ground and soothe the nervous system. Restorative yoga utilizes props to support the body in a fully supported position that are held for an extended period of time (up to 5 - 10 minutes) to encourage the body and mind to rest. Throughout the practice, mindfulness tools, breathwork and meditations specifically to address anxiety will also be incorporated. Each class will also provide opportunities for personal reflection and group processing as well as invitations for home practice.

Embodied Womxn Group

Next Series: TBD

We are born embodied. Yet life experiences can disconnect us from hearing the signals of our body.  Embodiment practice is the process of remembering how to listen to the body's innate wisdom. Through mindfulness, movement and breath, we practice turning inwards to develop your felt-sense of being in your body. You will re-learn how to connect your body and experience it as a place of safety, worthiness, and belonging. Join other womxn in community to remember and reclaim your inherent right to the wisdom of your body. 

 

This group will incorporate practices from yoga therapy, mindfulness, and other somatic modalities. Each session will include:

  •  A short opening mindfulness practice and check in

  • 45-minute period of mindful movement exploration

  • 45-minute period of group processing

  • A short closing mindfulness practice and check in

Whether you are living with a roommate, family member or significant other, staying home full-time has presented new (or amplified old) challenges for many of us. While there may be a lot we cannot change right now, we can have some say in how we are showing up for ourselves, and in turn, our loved ones. By learning the language of our nervous systems, and that of our partner’s, we can foster communication, understanding and support during times of stress.

Join me for this virtual workshop hosted by Three Moon Collective to explore supporting co-regulation and connection through somatic tools and movement practice. This workshop is open to all forms of partnership, whether roommates, family members, or romantic couples.

In this workshop, we will explore:
• Understanding the basics of co-regulation
• Creating a common language about the nervous system to foster communication between partners
• Somatic tools to soothe stress and support nervous system regulation both individually and between partners
• Individual movement practice focused on grounding and centering
• Partner movement practice to explore building trust, playfulness and communication through words, touch, and breath

Our time together will also incorporate personal reflections and group check-ins. Please come prepared to provide and receive physical touch and support from your partner. This workshop will also be recorded and sent as a replay for those who are unable to join us live.
