Unwind from the day and prepare the body, mind and soul for a deep and restful sleep.

Sometimes it’s difficult to quiet the mind to allow our bodies to relax. One of the ways we can support ourselves before sleep is by pressing, holding, and stretching our muscles.
Our bodies are always working for our good. Let us begin by expressing gratitude to our bodies through gentle movement and music.

We use a technique called self-myofascial release. Using a tennis ball or foam roller we softly press into several typical tight muscles, one at a time, through the whole body. Pressing into the muscle and holding soft pressure initiates its release from tight tension. This release allows our bodies to receive a deeper stretch and soothes us into feeling more relaxed and ready to rest. We end with a savasana and a relaxing guided meditation.
