Rest & Digest Mindfulness Series

November 2, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


DETAILS: Rest & Digest Beginners Mindfulness Series


Join Heidi for a weekly mindfulness practice to help get in touch with your body by supporting the nervous system and optimal digestive function during this transition season.


For the month of November we will practice and discuss nourishing ways to bring mindfulness and awareness back to your body. Emphasizing on the gut-brain connection and ways to support the parasympathetic nervous system through nutritional, physical and lifestyle options.


This series is ideal for people who are beginning their mindfulness journey and looking for nourishing ways to support their body in times of anxiety, stress, overwhelm, upset stomachs, menstruation discomfort/cramps or how to calm the body for rest.


Each week we will explore different topics but it is not required to attend each class. Recordings are available for those that are unable to make it to each class

Each week you can expect:

        • Beginner breathing practice
        • Soothing yoga sequence
        • Seasonal recipe for food and/or beverage
        • Space and time to meditate, journal, rest, digest & relax before and after practice with herbal teas available

Yoga mat is suggested but not necessarily required (there are only a few available) and I do recommend bringing a blanket, cozy socks and/or a notebook for the end as well. Pillows/meditation cushions are provided however we are in the forest so bring as many cozy items as you would like.
