Unlike other exercise programs, restorative poses place minimal metabolic demand on you. We can in fact see the practice as ‘active relaxation.” The postures add to your energy rather than subtract from it, during these periods of deep relaxation, you will be healed and nurtured from within. Qualified yoga instructors will use this certification to complement their current class schedules.

Psoas release yoga is a yoga adaptation of the TRE (Trauma Release Exercise) model developed by Dr. David Berceli  traumaprevention.com for more information.

The Psoas muscle is one of the largest muscles of the body, and it connects from the top of your femur or thighbone to the thoracic spine behind your diaphragm. On a functional level, it is a hip flexor muscle as well as a deep muscle of the core. More importantly it its a sensate muscle, hard-wired into your fight or flight system. Because we find ourselves as a society in chronic stress our Psoas muscle is exhausted and overused.

This class will consist of Yoga Postures designed to stretch and tire the Psoas muscle which enables it to illicit a release response in the way of Neurogenic tremoring that occurs following the Yoga Postures class. This tremoring is a natural response from the body to release deeply held stress and trauma, and the associated stress hormones in order for the body to return to homeostasis where the body can heal, restore and return to normal functioning.

Our class will end with Yoga Nidra:
Is your favorite part of your yoga class savasana? Have you wondered what a longer, deeper period of relaxation would feel like? What might it do for your stress levels and your health in general? Yoga nidra is a deep form of guided meditation that systematically takes you through four brainwave levels on a journey toward yogic sleep.

Is your favorite part of your yoga class savasana? Have you wondered what a longer, deeper period of relaxation would feel like? What might it do for your stress levels and your health in general? Yoga nidra is a deep form of guided meditation that systematically takes you through four brainwave levels on a journey toward yogic sleep. Studies show that one Nidra session translates to the equivalent of 2-3 hours of restful sleep. This practice is deeply restorative and healing for the mind, heart, body, and spirit. This training will equip qualified yoga instructors to integrate Yoga Nidra into their current class offerings.
