Chill Time Healing Yoga

When: Every Tuesday 12-12:50pm, March 3-April 28
Where: CU Museum of Natural History, Henderson Bldg.
Who: For faculty, staff and students at no charge.  Class is limited to 20 participants each day.  Come early to grab a spot

Come enjoy a yoga for everyone amongst the fossils at the CU Museum Paleontology Hall. Whether you are old, young, flexible, stiff, or “don’t do yoga”, this is a practice for you. A special opportunity for the CU community to be led on an inward journey into movements and poses designed to soothe the nervous system and stimulate your natural healing response.  Through deepening into awareness of sensation in the poses, you discover where in the body/mind there are blockages; where you may be blind.  Resting in these uncomfortable places reminds the nervous system that all is okay, bringing consciousness into the tissues of the body that need attention.  The body/mind remembers how to move in a way more in line with optimum function and more ease. Here there is no perfect pose, instead we adapt the pose in a way that does not excite the nervous system, allowing the natural healing power within to be awakened. Based on Kaiut yoga, this is a practice for the modern world. 

Please wear comfortable clothes (work clothes are fine as long as they have some flexibility, i.e. avoid skirts or tight pants) and bring a yoga mat if you can.

Facilitated by: Susanna Drogsvold
