Online Relaxation Intermediate: Flow Training
Going deeper with two relaxation pathways that emphasise flow and play: a set of somatic movement relaxations and yoga nidra.
Somatic movement relaxation exercises can ease postural strain through gentle, explorative movements with awareness, releasing holding from head to toes. Yoga nidra is a pathway to deeper relaxation that can ease emotional and mental strain.
Relaxation exercises can be an enjoyable experience in and of themselves. Regular practice can support your concentration and sleep, general wellbeing, inner peace, creativity, meditation, as well as gentle psychological processing to release physical and emotional tensions and anxieties. The course offers an experiential learning environment for deepening your personal practice and connecting with fellow practitioners.
You can find more information about gentle movement relaxation and yoga nidra at http://www.relaxationpathways.com. This course complements, and can also be a lead-in to meditation, mindfulness-based stress reduction, tai chi, somatic movement techniques and yoga.
The course includes a workshop on Sunday 13 December, 11.00 am – 4.00 pm.
Doing this course from your own home, make sure that you will not be disturbed during the evening sessions and day workshop so that you can fully benefit from the guided relaxation and shared learning.
The course will take place live via Zoom and includes handouts, recordings of guided exercises and support for practising during the week. Although it is possible to phone in to the live sessions, ideally you would connect online with a device that allows both audio and video connection (laptop, PC, tablet, smartphone).
This course is not suitable for people experiencing psychosis, clinical depression, personality disorder or medical conditions where gentle movement is not advisable. Do contact Sarvatajnana beforehand to discuss anything around health concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
