Strengthening Your Vestibular System 1:30pm-3:30pm

Saturday, June 6

If you have ever experienced dizziness or felt unsteady in some yoga poses, your vestibular system may need strengthening. The vestibular system processes almost all of our body’s sensations. It lets us know where we are in space, what is happening inside the body, and how to move and perceive as an integrated whole. A strong vestibular system helps us to feel steady, calm, centered, strong, and peaceful. Come join us as we share yogic techniques (asanas, breathing, meditation) to help strengthen this most important sensory system. A healthy vestibular system is crucial to a healthy body. Part lecture, part practice, each student will go home with specific, tailored practices to strengthen this system. All levels welcome. $25 Pre-registration required.
