This monthly session was created so I could share with you techniques to rebalance your nervous system and tips on sleep hygiene. Combined these tools will improve your ability to both fall asleep and stay asleep.
How this session can help you
Do you feel that your body is aging too fast? Do you suffer from tight hips, a stiff neck, a painful lower back, or restricted shoulder movements?
In this class we passively stretch the body using props such as bolsters & blocks helping you regain lost mobility so you feel less locked up in your body and a younger version of you!
At the end of this session you have the opportunity to hang back for a cup of sleep inducing tea, a slice of cake and a natter with Shirlí and your fellow classmates.
This provides a great opportunity to ask Shirlí any questions you may have, to flick through books that Shirlí recommends to understand and improve your sleep and also a little time to connect to others with similar interests.
Did your body posture influences your nervous system and your nervous system plays a huge role in your ability to switch off, fall asleep and stay asleep.
In this masterclass Shirlí will teach you the body positions that affect your nervous system both positively and negatively and you will learn a 15 minute stretching routine to implement before bed.
Stress and our ability to reduce it is a major player when it comes to deep, restful sleep.
In this masterclass you will learn mindfulness and meditation techniques to help reduce your stress, anxiety and sense of overwhelm. We will also explore the significance of gratitude and journaling to help slow down your over thinking mind.
All of the techniques we practice in this session have a down-regulating effect on the nervous system. Meaning it brings it out of 'fight/flight' mode and into 'rest/repair'
As we release tension from both the physical body and the mind, the nervous system begins to relax, this then places us into a down regulated state ideal for sleep!
Improved Quality of Life
When we improve the quality of our sleep, it dramatically impacts all other areas of our lives.
It helps you maintain a healthy weight, keeps your immune system strong, improves your mood and focus, keeps your heart healthy, reduces your stress levels and improves your emotional and mental wellbeing.
I have been practicing yoga since 2009 and qualified as a teacher in 2012. I had a serious car accident in 2013 where I suffered a brain haemorrhage and broke C5 in my neck. This accident and my subsequent recovery was my catalyst for seeking and learning all types of healing modalities.
I have a deep interest in all things connected to our well-being and a keen interest in stress management, brain health, sleep and fertility support.
I am qualified in many forms of yoga along with mindfulness, meditation, stress management and I am a certified Breath coach.
I teach online through zoom, I run workshops monthly and retreats 2-3 times per year. I’m easy to find on social media @vitalityvibe. I would love to see you in class some day and
I hope my experience and knowledge helps you advance toward your mind-body fitness goals.
