In this One Day Retreat we will explore different ways of releasing stress from our systems.
Cause in our often busy day to day lives we hold on to more stress then we want to, leading to lower energy levels, less mental clarity and a higher chance of physical ailments. Lowering your stress levels will support your health in so many ways!
A lot of us hold tension and stress around the neck and shoulders, but our hips are also known for holding onto a lot of tension.
A muscle that plays a big part in holding on to stress is our Psoas muscle, which connects our spine to our hips. It’s the main muscle responsible for the “fight or flight” response of the body. When you experience mental or emotional stress the psoas will respond by contracting and tightening, which can manifest itself in discomfort, fatigue, tightness and pain in the lower back and hips but also restricts our ability to breathe freely. We will focus this day on exploring different methods to bring more understanding to how the Psoas holds on to stress and how we can bring more relaxation to our Psoas muscle. Leading to more range of motion in the body, less tightness and discomfort and feeling more grounded.
Working with Somatic Movement (a gentle approach to movement to raise body awareness), Tension Release Exercises (TRE, the natural mechanism of the body to release stress) and Fascia Release (a self massage method to relax our connective tissue) to release the tension that is stored into our physical bodies. Easy to use movements and methods that you can take home with you.
If you want to know a bit more about how your body responds to stress, get some practical tools that can support your overall health, or if you’re just looking to spend a day connecting to your body, then this day is for you!
Yummy vegetarian lunch and tea all day will be provided.
