REST & RECOVERY: Activating the Parasympathetic Nervous System
and Improving Waste Removal for Optimizing Recovery in the Cross Fit Athlete
Join Kirstin for a 3 hour workshop utilizing the Yoga Tune Up® Coregeous ball and breathing drills for some autonomic nervous system ‘trickery’ to help increase parasympathy, the part of our nervous system devoted to ‘rest & digest’.
Modern living is full of biological stressors that keep us in sympathetic nervous system overdrive. Add in daily WODs and your body may be screaming for some relief via pain, burnout or illness. True nervous system and muscle recovery can only occur when parasympathy is activated. In addition, the grippy texture of the Coregeous ball provides a myofascial stretch that facilitates waste removal, improving your immune health.
What you’ll learn:
Breathing techniques that activate the rest & digest portion of your nervous system
Self-mobilization techniques of the rib cage, thoracic spine, abdomen, and diaphragm for improved breathing mechanics
Restorative Exercise techniques for improving mobility of the rib cage, thoracic spine, abdomen and diaphragm
Mobilization and movements to facilitate lymph flow
Price: $55 includes your own Coregeous ball
