August 3, 2017

Backbends come with some serious promises and aren't accessible to all people and certainly aren't sustainable if done in the extreme way. I know, I know, you don't want to give them up or you want to still be able to try them and this practice makes space for both. Explore all the efforts and possibilities that backbends like cobra, camel, bow, upward bow, crescent contain without having to do a single one.

NERVOUS SYSTEM REBOOT PART TWO

December 28, 2016

What: Audio Yoga Asana and Meditation Practice Session

Why: Nervous System Reboot and Restore

Length: 50 Minutes

Level: Any

Props: Two Blocks and a Blanket

Description:

I usually call this the Reboot in workshops and trainings, if you have done a workshop with me about the Psoas and nervous system, this is the sequence we used as a reset after the quick Psoas Release.

This audio session will lead you through a 50 minute nervous system reboot and restore sequence that will free up physical regions and joints such as your hips, spine, shoulders, neck, and breathing patterns.  It can help calm the nervous system allowing the parasympathetic system to take over.  The sequence also includes some gentle front and back body stability and strength building exercises.

You can use the 'Nervous System Reboot Part Two' practice without having to complete Part One and still have excellent results.

Follow the 'Nervous System Reboot Part One' with the 'Nervous System Reboot Part Two' for a complete release and reformatting experience for the whole body and mind.

*Do not use this recording after 8pm as it can cause a sense of alertness that can make it difficult to sleep.

*This recording is not meant to prevent, treat, or cure any physical or mental condition and should be used with caution.
