Restorative Reset – Power through Stillness

3 week Online Course 

Started June 7 but you can still join in as it’s a self-paced course you can do anytime and anywhere.

Are you exhausted or overwhelmed?

Most of us lead lives that reinforce our working at fast forward speed and then we collapse into exhaustion. These days feel just too over-scheduled, too busy, too distracted. 

We come up with so many plans: new resolutions, new diets, new bucket-lists and the constant promises to ourselves to take better care and take more rest.

But it’s not so easy, so we don’t.

This is where Restorative yoga comes in. Restorative yoga is an antidote to the busy life in fast forward mode. Restorative yoga is a gentle yet very effective practice. 

It is simple, easy, and a very potent tool for reducing stress and releasing tension. Only 10 minutes of a Restorative yoga pose will change your day, mood, perspective, and ultimately life.

This online self care program is built around three restorative yoga recordings with Maxi. Each session offers a different theme and and takes about 75-90 min. In each session we create space to let go, turn inward, and rest deeply in our own being.

Join Maxi Meissner, a yoga and science nerd, who will guide you through three, 1.5h recorded sessions using different restorative yoga and breathing techniques for quieting the nervous system, facilitating mental and physical release and connecting to attention and awareness.

Chandra Krama – Nourish Your Body, Mind & Soul

Will announce new date soon!

Replenish the well-spring of energy that is oftentimes lost as we rush through the business of our days. Honor and be present with what is instead of trying to get anywhere.

You will leave this mini self-care retreat feeling deeply nourished in your physical, mental and energetic body.

 

Overview:

In this workshop Maxi will guide you through the full Moon Sequence, or Chandra Krama. The practice begins as a gentle vinyasa flow, moving slowly deeper while bringing continuous awareness to the breath and inner sensations, relaxing and soothing the nervous system. This practice finishes with a series of nurturing restorative poses.

 

For everyone who wants to feel more:
  • calm instead of overwhelm
  • energy for everything that comes their way
  • at home in their body
  • focused to live their best life possible
  • empowered 

This mini self-care retreat is suitable for all levels of yoga practitioners.
