Nervous System Reset Class
Join us on Tuesday afternoons for a Nervous System Reset to discharge stress and promote relaxation. We will be using gentle movement and breathing techniques to release tension and support our bodies in finding balance and ease. Each class will include check-in, warm-up, large muscle engagement, sensory awareness, and guided relaxation. Keeping things playful, we will give the mind a break and the body the care it deserves. You will learn simple, effective tools for settling the nervous system that you can use any time. The class is suitable for all fitness levels, and no previous meditation experience is needed. Led by Dr. Carson Brown. If you are interested, please call the Baywell main number at 415-922-9122 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
