Self-Care for the holidays - Myofascial Release + Yoga Nidra
Before the holidays get into full swing come roll and relax with Gwynn Ellicott and Jennifer Reuter.
Learn two self-care practices that you can use at home to get you through the holidays, and throughout the year to increase your overall well-being!
Gwynn will teach us about Myofascial Release Therapy and how to use Yoga Tune-Up Balls. This helps to relieve the hidden tension in your connective tissues that are inhibiting mobility.
Decreased mobility, stagnation and sedentary conditions can increase risk for injuries, and the circulation and communication networks of the body can become compromised, which leads to more fatigue and dullness.
Working with Myofascial Release increases mobility, circulation and increases energy.
Jennifer will then teach us about the powerful lying down meditational practice of Yoga Nidra. This practice not only recharges the body and mind but has been shown to increase dopamine by 65%. Dopamine is one of the central power-drivers for all of the work your brain does. From memory to learning, to being motivated, paying attention and being HAPPY. Yoga Nidra creates bliss for your brain.
