Tune Up + Down
This six week course is the product of my Yoga Tune Up®, Roll Model®, Yoga + Movement, and Somatic Experiencing trauma resolution work.
As the name implies, we'll both Tune Up & Down.
Together we will 'Tune Up' to move better and feel better in our bodies. We'll incorporate Yoga Tune Up® poses and practices to increase our mobility and use our therapy balls to awaken and soothe our bodies, our tissues, our sensing self.
Up and Down - we'll do somatic exercises and practices to both down regulate AND up regulate.
There can be a lot of emphasis on the importance of down regulation and calming and coming down from a state of heightened stress or activation and YES this is important and necessary AND we sometimes need to be able to UP REGULATE when we're in prolonged states of lethargy or sluggishness or feeling generally stuck (ie. functional freeze).
Every week will have a theme and we'll have movement, somatic, mindfulness, self care/self massage practices to go along with the theme.
Each weekly session will include a 60 minute experiential class with embodiment practices, a 30 minute discuss with Q+A, and optional 'home work' (Practices you can play with at home)
