Meditation uses techniques such as deep breathing, visualization and progressive muscle relaxation to activate a deep relaxation response. Meditation can relax the nervous system in a way that gives the body rest which is even deeper than sleep. This rest helps the body heal itself from many things including physical ailments commonly brought on by stress. Visualization can help reprogram the fight or flight response in the body and help us move into a more restful state. When practiced regularly meditation can lead to a reduction in your everyday stress levels and a boost in your happiness levels. This class aims to both energize and restore you!
