Tension and Stress Release Workshop

Saturday, May 4, 2019, from 2:00-4:00 pm presented at Yoga Connection, 3929 E Pima St., Tucson, AZ 85712

Cost: $20  ($25 if registered after 4/27/19)

Our bodies can store lots of stress, tension, fear, and unhealed emotional and physical traumas. The psoas muscle is one of the most important muscles in the body, but is also one of the least understood. Your psoas muscles, one on each side, are the deepest muscles in your core. They attach on each side of your low back, run through your pelvis and attach to the femur bones. They are the only muscles that connect your spine to your legs. Your psoas muscles are constantly responding to your breath and your emotions. When you are tense or stressed or startled, your psoas muscles contract, pushing the body into flight, fight or freeze status. When the psoas contracts, it can be felt as pain in the knees, low back and hips or exhaustion. This workshop will use yoga poses to assist the body to release muscular patterns of stress and tension. We will then allow the body to gently vibrate, move or shake to allow the psoas muscles to relax and the nervous system to calm down. We will end our session with a short guided yoga nidra. You will leave this workshop refreshed and rested and you will have an important self-care tool that you can use on your own at home.

Guided Relaxation with Yoga Nidra

Sunday, May 5, 2019, from 2:00-3:30 pm presented at Mindful Yoga, 1101 N Wilmot Rd., Tucson, AZ 85712

Cost: $20/$15 for members  ($25 if registered after 4/27/19)

Yoga Nidra can be translated to “Yogic Sleep”.  Yoga Nidra is an ancient yogic practice that is both a form of meditation and a mind-body therapy. It is a systematic form of guided relaxation.  Yoga Nidra has many benefits which include deep relaxation, release of chronic stress, more restful sleep, resolution to many of life’s issues, and a greater sense of harmony in daily life and relationships.  Guided by the teacher’s voice, you identify sensations throughout your body and focus on your breath, while remaining in a state of relaxed awareness so that you may release deeply held tensions.  We will start by developing an intention for our life and for the practice. Then we will focus our awareness on our breath, bodily sensations, emotions, and thoughts. Throughout the practice we will tap into an underlying sense of peace that is always present.  The entire workshop will be practiced lying down on a mat with soft blankets and bolsters for added comfort and support.  One hour of Yoga Nidra is said to equate to 4 hours of restful sleep.  No prior yoga experience is needed to participate in this workshop.

What People say

Having been a yoga student of Becky's for more than ten years, I believe that she is an outstanding teacher and mentor. She is dedicated to learning/growing in her own practice, and she eagerly shares her knowledge and information with her students. She has a gentle wisdom and manner, and is gifted at ensuring that each student's practice addresses his/her own individual needs and abilities. I often feel that she can "read" my mind/body!

Our journey to Peru was an amazing adventure! I can't say what I loved the best -- the Sacred Valley oasis of Willka Tika with those beautiful chakra flower gardens, Machu Picchu and the grand sense of the past, or our tour guide's passionate stories of the ancient and wise peoples. It was wonderful to have the daily yoga practice to give us all a deep truth connection to our surroundings. This was a well developed and intimate adventure for all of us.
