Deep Relaxation Training 1

Monday 9th Sep 2019 to Monday 21st Oct 2019 - 5.30pm to 7.00pm

Seven weeks plus a day workshop exploring deep relaxation by training in a particularly accessible and effective relaxation pathway: progressive muscle relaxation.

We will also use elements of active relaxation, mindfulness and positive emotion training. The course complements, and can also be a lead-in to meditation and MBSR. Effective training depends on daily home practice, which is an essential part of the course.

Deep relaxation is a very pleasant experience in itself as it helps dissolve stress and holding patterns in the bodymind. Progressive muscle relaxation training offers particularly thorough learning around the experience of holding and release. It can support your general wellbeing, inner peace, creativity, concentration, meditation, sleep, as well as gentle psychological processing to release physical and emotional tensions and anxieties.

Like most relaxation pathways, progressive muscle relaxation calms and harmonises the nervous system, and through that the body and mind more broadly. As the training progresses, your bodymind will relax more and more deeply and you will be able to “get into” deep relaxation more quickly. Furthermore, with daily practice there is the possibility of establishing quick relaxation routines that can support you during the day, wherever you are.

The training course ends with a day workshop, 10.00am - 4.00 pm on Sunday 27 October
