Herbs for Natural Calm (Stress, Anxiety & Sleep)

4:30-6pm Sunday, August 11th

It is common knowledge that stress is a major factor that contributes to poor health. On top of that, some of the top selling pharmaceutical drugs are anti-anxiety medications and sleep aids.
How do we find calm amidst the chaos, and address chronic stress, anxiety and sleep issues in a more natural manner?
Meditation is an answer for some, but for others meditation brings up more anxiety. While Melatonin, a well-known “natural” sleep aid, is made in a lab and doesn’t work for everyone. If you feel like you have tried every trick in the book or you are interested in migrating to a natural approach, this workshop is for you.
Georgetown Massage and Bodywork’s resident Herbalist, Erin Antosh, will touch on some proven lifestyle modifications that support natural calm, while focusing on medicinal herbs that can be used safely and daily to support stress, anxiety and sleep issues. You will learn about
underlying health issues that may be the root cause of your issues and how to incorporate calming herbs into your daily routine to provide relief.
NOTES: Your event fee includes herbal tea to sip during the class. Please inform us of any allergies prior to the class and we will do our best to accommodate.

Practical Meditation

Practical Meditations with Rebecca Petillo offers powerful, proven meditation techniques and mindfulness tools that enhance life and the enjoyment of your everyday moments. These tools include ways to establish a daily meditation routine which will encourage inner peace, strengthen relationships and enliven creative problem solving. A professional instructor with over 28 years of daily practice, Rebecca brings a sense of levity and enjoyment to the practice which encourages relaxation, mental clarity and, an overall sense of purpose and joy.

Each Practical Meditation class will begin with a brief discussion about meditation as a gift for your soul.  We then enjoy a gentle kind body scan.  We follow this with a discussion about establishing a workable daily meditation practice.  Each week we finish with a different meditation which allows each person to build their own ‘tool kit’ of practical mindfulness techniques that work for them.

Practical Meditations, the ultimate “me” time which enlivens the “we” times.

Yoga Nidra

Known as “yogic sleep,” Yoga nidra is a conscious relaxation practice that is intended to induce total physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. Yoga nidra is generally practiced lying down so you can let go completely. Props, pillows and blankets are commonly used, as well as anything that will help you get into a totally comfortable, restful position. A typical yoga nidra practice is highly guided meditation, and takes your attention to specific places through a series of scripts and/or visualizations. No yoga experience necessary; all you need to bring is yourself and an open mind!
