    Deep Relaxation to Prevail Over Castastrophe

    Deep Relaxation to Prevail Over Castastrophe

    Deep relaxation to prevail over catastrophe, soothe anxiety and get serious about rest. Get warm and cozy and allow yourself to feel held by the earth. 

    So while once we asked,

    how could we possibly prevail over catastrophe?

    Now we assert

    How could catastrophe possibly prevail over us?

    -Amanda Gorman, "The Hill We Climb"

    If you breathe, you belong here.

    Restorative Yoga to Prevail Over Catastrophe

    Restorative Yoga to Prevail Over Catastrophe  

    Part of a Series: Restorative Yoga for Better Rest 

    Grab some blankets and couch cushions and get serious about rest.  

    The beginning of the class invites you to consider "sleep hacks" which you have tried and they have been successful in your life to remind you that you are empowered to create better rest in your life.   

    Inspired by a line from poet Amanda Gorman, you are invited in this grounding and down-regulating restorative yoga practice to prioritize rest and sleep.

    how could we possibly prevail over catastrophe?

    Experience Your Energy Centers with Guided Relaxation

    When you're overwhelmed it can be it harder to sleep. Yoga NIdra is a deep relaxation practice, and so much more.

    Restorative Yoga to Tame Your Jaw Tension

    Restorative Yoga to Tame Your Jaw Tension

    Micro movements of your jaw and tongue can affect not only your jaw and neck, but on a deeper level your vagus nerve, and thus release tension more globally.  

    This is a very subtle practice, done almost entirely in the restorative yoga posture 'legs up the wall', or viparita karani.  Allow this gentle inversion to reverse blood flow and nourish you as you mindfully focus on the subtle movements of your tongue and jaw.

    Nothing here is medical advice.

    Drop Your Doubt to Clarify Your Intention

    Drop Your Doubt to Clarify Your Intention

    What longing has been living inside you, waiting to be more fully expressed? What intention is bubbling up from deep within you? 

    Sankalpa is the practice of getting clear on your intention so that you are aligned with your highest potential. 

    When your body can settle and you feel held, your thoughts and feelings can drop any doubtfulness that might be blocking your intention. 

    Will you let self doubt cloud your inherent goodness, or will you feel supported by the earth and share your gifts with the world?

I’ve been thinking about these things a lot lately and your experience with moving stress from the limbus brain out of your body is really helpful.
