Offering Restorative Wellness allows the students/clients, or yourself, an opportunity to deeply rest and delve into self-care.
Restorative Wellness stimulates your body’s natural healing mechanisms, assisting to; reduces stress, boost the immune system, deepen sleep and cultivates a quieter, clearer mind.
Through external situations and internal habits, such as long-held physical tension and limiting self-concepts, a person’s energy can become either deficient or excessive, therefore imbalanced. These imbalances may develop temporarily with situational challenges, or they may be chronic. A chronic imbalance can come from childhood experiences, past pain or stress, and internalised cultural values. When blockages occur, it triggers physical, mental, or emotional imbalances that manifest in symptoms such as anxiety, lethargy, or poor digestion. Through this course we will explore conscious relaxation cultivating a deep, inner stillness. Through this stillness, we allow our system to release into its integrative healing power. The course will guide you to assist clients through yoga breathing, postures, and meditation practices which can benefit mental health and emotional well-being. Participants will learn to teach safe, effective and accessible practices to individuals and groups with a focus on sharing with clients in behavioural health settings.
