Event description

Description

This course is intended for individuals who are living with emotional distress or mental illness such as PTSD, anxiety, depression and trauma.

These classes are appropriate for any level of experience with yoga; for those who have never been to a yoga class and for those who are advanced practitioners. You will learn various techniques to calm the nervous system and quiet the mind in the hope that you can take these techniques and apply them in your day to day experiences. We will explore methods to help invoke sleep and increase quality of sleep. In essence we will begin to teach the body that it will be 'ok' during periods of stress and allow it to relax and engage the parasympathetic nervous system (our relax and digest mode).

Each class consists of one hour of yoga designed to help you turn off the flight or fight response and teach yourself how to become aware of your physical self through social engagement and physical attunement. In addition to a one-hour yoga class, we will spend half an hour engaging with the shelter animals. This in itself can be truly therapeutic and invites joy and compassion into our hearts.

The participants will attend 6 sessions, with the first hour of the session being a yoga class taught by Lisa Gaglione or Paula Schraeder, followed by 30 minutes of interaction with shelter cats or dogs.

6 Week Session - October 29th - December 3rd, 2019 from 7:00pm to 8:30pm

6 Week Session - November 2nd - December 14th, 2019 from 10:30am-12:00pm NO CLASS NOV 9
