There are too many benefits to list when it comes to journaling. Simply put, expressive writing is a route to healing -- emotionally, physically, and psychologically. Studies have shown that the emotional release from journaling lowers anxiety, stress, and induces better sleep. There's a strong connection between happiness and mindfulness. Journaling brings you into that state of mindfulness; past frustrations and future anxieties lose their edge in the present moment.
Experience benefits of reduced stress, improved awareness, and greater happiness. Enjoy a guided meditation that transforms by inducing relaxation and healing of the mind, body, and spirit.
Sound has been utilized in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for healing. Whether through the use of mantras as with the Hindis, or other forms, the various techniques all have the same intention: to move us from a place of imbalance to a place of balance.
Trauma Conscious Yoga
Trauma Conscious Yoga (a.k.a. Yoga for PTSD, or Trauma Informed Yoga) is based on a particular understanding of trauma, one that emphasizes its impact on the entire mind-body system, as opposed to particular mental states (e.g., troubling memories). “Trauma,” author Bessel van der Kolk explains, “is not just an event that took place sometime in the past; it is also the imprint left by that experience on mind, brain, and body.”
Vinyasa translates to “flowing with breath” and is a dynamic style of yoga which joins physical postures with breath, creating a steady internal rhythm for the practice.
In Yin, postures are held for longer periods of time, benefiting the deeper connective tissues.
Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful meditation technique, and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain.
The main philosophy of yoga is simple: mind, body and spirit are all one and cannot be clearly separated. Yet there is a multitude of philosophical ideas developed by looking into the deeper dimensions of the body, mind and spirit. This class will dive deeper into the philosophies of yoga.
