- Whole Brain Relationships - Tuesday, April 20th from 10-11:30 am
Whole Brain Relationships is the “Magic Wand” for developing and maintaining satisfying relationships. In this workshop, you will join Nick Lawrence to learn how the right and left sides of the brain work to manage stress. When a person is upset, the right brain has what is called a “flood” and is unable to draw from the left brain where the logic and linear thinking lay. Most people respond to someone upset with their left brain, trying to help them feel better, when it actually makes it worse. Guaranteed, you will leave with two great strategies that you will be able to implement immediately: “Connect and Redirect” and “Name it to Tame it.”

- Restorative Yoga Practice – Watch the workshop
We can all use a little calm as we head into the holidays. Join SRJC Director Maleese Warner for a restorative, relaxing and restful practice and yoga nidra meditation. Yoga nidra, also known as yogic sleep/rest, is a meditation and 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. The yoga nidra practice is highly guided, and takes your attention to specific places through a series of steps, which can make it easier to relax than in meditation.
- Find Your Spring Equinox Balance - Watch the workshop
The Spring equinox is just around the corner. To bring in the balance and the shift into spring's new growth, Maleese Warner is offering Yin Yoga and Meditation in this workshop. In this Yin Yoga practice, you will prop your body with blankets and a pillow while staying in supportive restorative postures. After the Yin practice, Maleese will guide you through a short Yoga Nida Meditation. It is recommended you have a yoga mat or soft place to lay, two thick blankets or a fewl large towels, and two pillows for this session.
