That Yoga Studio
Tuesday's at 5:30pm
Yin yoga involves holding poses for minutes at a time. It is slow and meditative, and primarily benefits your deep connective tissues (fascia, ligaments, and joints). Staying in poses for 2-7 minutes allows your connective tissue to lengthen, flexibility to increase, circulation to improve, and stress levels to drop. Our sessions will frequently focus on heart-opening poses and will always be adapted to your unique body.
Meditation & Breathwork
Monday, Dec 11th
This class is designed to allow you to tap into a deep state of relaxation and learn how to regulate stress and anxiety for practical everyday use. Sound healing instruments and aromatherapy will be a frequent component. Expect an easygoing atmosphere!
Meditation & Breathwork
6:15 - 7:15pm
Sign up here.
Expect therapeutic vibes. You will be guided through simple practices designed to allow your nervous system to reach a parasympathetic state. This means that your body is able to tap back into its innate ability to relax, restore, and heal. Most classes will include guided meditation and pranayama (yogic breathing), with occasional flair (essential oils, reiki, etc.). Bring your favorite zafu if you own one!
WVU Student Recreation Center

Note from Gabrielle:
"Your nervous system is communicating with the people all around you ALL THE TIME.
This is not unique — this is universal.
Humans are physiologically wired to communicate via electrical impulses between nervous systems.
Sometimes people are naturally more sensitive from birth — a natural aptitude.
Many people develop their sensitivity out of necessity when they are in any stressful situations that require their knowledge of other people’s emotions to improve in order to keep themselves safe.
You have an electromagnetic field (EMF).
Your EMF communicates with other people’s EMF.
Your heart gives off a massive EMF, because…. well, 𝘆𝗼𝘂’𝗿𝗲 𝗮𝗹𝗶𝘃𝗲 😂 and experiencing different emotional states that emit unique impulses.
Your brain has an EMF, too. It’s smaller than the one around your heart (and measurable with fancy equipment in a laboratory — or by a reiki or tai chi master).
Taking care of your own nervous system literally helps everyone around you.
A lot of my work is literally maintaining an insanely grounded and peaceful nervous system state and welcoming people to strategically coregulate with it in my classes and sessions.
Most people don’t know that. 🧘🏻♀️
And the phenomenal part about being exposed to that repetitively is that your nervous system gets intimately familiar with it; and therefore, you can down-regulate your own nervous system on command when you’re alone."
