Embodied Resilience: Self-Care for a Healthy Nervous System
If you’re looking to release stress from your body-mind, calm and soothe your nervous system, and create a self care practice that’s truly in tune with you — you’re in the right place.
In this six week program, we’re going to take a look “under the hood” at what’s going on with your nervous system…. and how it affects your energy levels, your moods, and even your thoughts and perceptions.
I’ll be giving you powerful practices for nervous system regulation, ease and flow as you create your healing self care practice… based on your system’s unique needs.
You’ll leave with your uniquely aligned, inspired, and sustainable self-care practice. So you can be fully present to yourself and your loved ones, feel clear and confident in your boundaries and needs, fully express your light, and create the highest version of the work you’re here to share.
