Do you feel a little lost, stressed and disconnected from yourself and others? Are you feeling in pain? Do you have anxiety, depression or feel lonely? Are you interested in learning about self-regulation through free movement, heart and breath? Are you interested in how feeling safe calms the nervous system?
We are offering a gentle two-day retreat in our peaceful studios in Cheltenham. We are COVID safe and only work with groups up to 6 in large spaces. We are a research active centre publishing the latest academic research on the physiological basis of stress and how to balance the nervous system through movement, physiology, creativity, connection and the imagination. Dr. Amanda Williamson will share her latest research on balancing the nervous system and reconnecting with others in a safe space. For a space email email@example.com
The retreat will explore the following through slow-time mediative movement:
Self-regulation and co-regulation (how to support Self and Other)
The healing nature of gravity
The journey of the vagus nerve and how to innervate the vagus nerve through movement, breath and heart awareness
The divisions of the autonomic nervous system and how to balance the nervous system through movement, breath, sociality and safety
The ventral branch of the vagus nerve and how to be with Self and Other in a clam state – and retain a relaxed state in stressful situations
Heart-centred somatic movement mediations and the latest research on resonance
