Yoga to Benefit Your Nervous and Respiratory Systems and Help You Sleep Well
Many people begin a yoga practice to become strong and flexible; it’s a fitness workout at first, but soon students feel its deeper benefits. Yoga helps people think more clearly, sleep better, breathe better, and manage stress better. Through yoga’s alchemy, the bodymind is transformed. Yoga is so much more than a good way to stretch muscles and joints.
Yoga trainings do not typically include very much about physiology, and yet we are becoming part of the mainstream health-care system. Students now turn to yoga teachers for help with a wide range of complex health problems, including stress management, high blood pressure and breathing difficulties. As teachers, we have the responsibility to learn how the organ systems function, so that we are better prepared to help our students. As students we benefit from knowing what’s happening inside our own body 24-7 and how yoga can help us stay vibrantly healthy.
This day long workshop offers a comprehensible look at the nervous and respiratory systems with special emphasis on aiding sleep. Concepts that may be too technical or complex in a textbook or on a website are pared down to the essence, and applied directly to yoga practice. We will study how each system works, and what yoga practices are helpful to balance functions that are either underactive or overactive. You will come away with practical techniques to help yourself and your students.
Yoga, Anatomy & Ballwork for Low Back and Sacro-iliac Joints.
Ellen will differentiate the primary causes of low back pain, and how to work with each one specifically. Includes ball work techniques and yoga poses you can practice at home or share with students for ongoing self care and relief.
