Self-Care for the Nervous System

Learn ways to boost your capacity to keep up with life demands while keeping yourself calm, collected, and comfortable. This class will teach movement and awareness practices from Structural Integration, Yoga, Body-Mind Centering & The Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education. These practices can be done on their own, or used enhance existing practices like yoga, meditation, martial arts and dance. Good for anyone looking to increase resilience to stress, recover from trauma, injury, or chronic pain. Led by Mary Bacha, with Karin Wagner assisting. 

Appropriate for the public, yet also will have enough juicy information to be very relevant for health practitioners of all types. 
This class is NOT intended to treat severe trauma; upon request, we can provide a referral to a trained therapist. 

$15-$35 sliding scale, pre-registration required (see Tickets). The class is limited to 14 participants, and it will fill up.
