IN GOOD STANDING: Anneli Molin-Skelton

Standing up is not a one-time event – it takes fortitude. In relationships, at work, in conversation, with our own habits, we are called to stand up again and again, in matters big and small.
So how do we embody this necessary practice?
Let’s explore together and allow our bodies to answer. An Open Floor movement inquiry where we mine the innate wisdom of our bodies to investigate.

THE PRACTICE OF WELCOMING: iRest® Yoga Nidra with Nöle Giulini

When we want this moment to be other than it is we experience stress and internal conflict: We separate from what is. 
Healing occurs when we are no longer absorbed and tangled up in likes and dislikes. Attention bound in reaction is now available for change and transformation.
A change of perspective invites a feeling of radiant and joyful translucence in the body and brings about profound insights and Awakening.

The practice of iRest® helps calm the nervous system, integrate difficult emotions and thoughts, and helps find authentic responses to life’s challenges.
