Come back to yourself with iRest. This deep meditation is a wonderful nervous system reset for every human. Used in military settings as a top tier therapy for PTS and operational stress you will rest deeply in stillness for body & mind. This practice is a wonderful support for stress relief, mental health and pain. Make sure you are in a comfortable physical position, a chair or lying on the floor or in bed. If you are lying down, place a pillow under your knees and heels to rest the back. You may want a blanket to cover you as your body temperature will drop during class. Instruction is primarily verbal cueing; minimal physical demonstration. Recommended props: blanket, pillows
This class is appropriate for all students with all experience levels, including new and beginner students who are still learning the basics.
Gentle, almost no movement.
