From the minute we wake up, most of us hit the ground running, and fill the day with a multitude of responsibilities and activities. In addition to our busy schedules, we are consciously and subconsciously absorbing massive amounts of information from technological devices, social media, television, the radio, newspapers, magazines, and our general surroundings. Eat - sleep - repeat. Is it really any wonder that most of us experience physical and emotional symptoms of stress and anxiety on a regular basis?
Find Your Calmness is a group intended to help members learn practical tools and skills for slowing down, relaxing, restoring balance, and reconnecting with the inner calmness we all possess and may be neglecting. Some of the tools and skills we will be exploring include aromatherapy, breathing and meditation, simple restorative yoga poses, soothing music, foods to avoid and foods that help promote calmness, the benefits of drinking tea, and the benefits of various crystals and Himalayan salt lamps. Find Your Calmness will also help group members discover small businesses within their community that promote calmness and well-being.
Please wear comfortable clothing to Find Your Calmness, such as leggings, yoga pants, sweatpants, t-shirts, and socks. Please try not to wear any perfumes or colognes, as we will be working with aromatherapy. Please bring a fresh pillow and a small blanket/throw with you to each session. Leave your shoes, and your worries at Anna's door, and prepare to decompress.
Find Your Calmness meets for one hour, once a week, for four weeks, starting at the beginning of each month. The cost of the group is $40 per session, with a $30 registration/materials fee. Each month, there will be room for five members per group, and there are morning and evening times available to accommodate your busy schedule.
