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
