You’ve lost something. You’ve lost your vitality. Maybe it slipped away overnight. Or maybe it seeped out of you so slowly that it’s hard to remember what feeling good feels like. Sometimes the body needs to rest. And illness is one of the ways that can happen.
So, rest is the first principle. And not just any rest, but the kind of rest that allows the body, mind, and senses to relax and let go. Why? By relaxing all the systems of the body, you create the right conditions for the body to restore itself.
When you feel stronger and more vital, the second principle, restoration, gradually increases movement activities with gentle joint movements, stretching and breathwork with the intention of moving toward health and well-being on all levels.
The third principle, rebuild, continues with gentle yoga, stretching and strengthening poses, as well as lifestyle modifications to support your growing strength and overall well-being. This includes creating a vision of wellness for yourself and your intention for health and wellness.
The forth principle, retain, is a commitment to your wellness plan. Feeling well is a lifelong pursuit. When we feel well, we have energy to participate and contribute beyond the bounds of our body. The forth principle, retain, is the freedom principle. Freedom to be who we are truly meant to be: loving, generous, involved with our family and friends, and active in our communities.
This workshop, Yoga and the 4 Stages of Healing: Rest, Restore, Rebuild, Retain, combines learning with doing so that you take home a commitment to lifestyle modifications and practices that move you closer to freedom.
This is an all levels event that provides CEUs for certified yoga teachers. Open to serious students of yoga, yoga teachers, and individuals who want to feel good again.
