Learn how to unwind your stress and make room for rest
With Sharon Sztar
The key thing we’re all missing in our world today is REST. We’re not just talking relaxation time, but the experience of deep rejuvenating rest. When we relax, we soothe our nervous system; when we rest, we restore its natural state of balance. Unfortunately, until we learn how to unwind the striving and ‘doing’ in our life, our body can’t easily enter a deep restful state.
Join Sharon Sztar to experience a level of deep rest and rejuvenation like never before in our first Stillness Through Movement (STM) workshop encompassing three hours of calm, bliss and surrender.
STM, often termed a ‘moving meditation’, is a unique sequenced combination of supported restorative poses, vibrational medicine (aromatherapy), conscious breath and mind awareness techniques to support deep restoration of our endocrine and nervous systems.
This nurturing practice will assist your nervous system in getting out of its ‘fight, flight, freeze’ stress response and into what is known as the healing and relaxation room of the body. No yoga or meditation experience required. Depleted and tired bodies especially welcome.
Who will this workshop benefit?
As this practice brings the body and mind back into homeostasis, the workshop is really for anyone living in the modern world. In particular it alleviates:
Stress, anxiety, burnout and depression
Insomnia and sleep problems
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Adrenal Fatigue and HPA dysregulation
Trauma, illness and surgery recovery
Or quite simply, 21st century busyness and overwhelm
Specific workshop outcomes
Release lethargy, depletion, emotional and nervous tension
Replenish, nourish and reset your endocrine and nervous systems
Deeply cleanse, relieve and revitalise your pituitary gland (master hormone)
What to expect in the workshop
Unlike most traditional yoga classes, STM requires no striving in poses; actually we request the complete opposite. Our goal is to release the body and mind from all striving as it’s only in this space that the body can relax, activate the PSNS and therefore begin to heal. This is why it is the ideal practice for anyone suffering from fatigue, stress relatedillnesses or chronic pain. Most of the poses are also done on the floor which helps to counter the effect of gravity; you’ll definitely notice the difference. It’s an extremely nurturing practice, yet it also refreshes the mind and body so you feel as if you’ve just woken up from a deep sleep.
Feedback from past attendees
“I was feeling tired and spacey when we began. By the end of the session I felt more grounded and focused, less frenetic and no longer tired. It as as if I had slept and woke up rested, although I didn’t actually fall asleep.” Stacey, Photographer
“Sharon is next level. Her practice takes you from flight, flight, freeze to this quiet really peaceful place. During the class, she comes around and wraps you in blankets, sprays essential oils on you – the works. Seriously it felt as if mother earth was taking care of me.” Estelle, HR Leader
“I have remained nicotine free since my first week of STM sessions. I’m not saying it has been easy, but I feel that this level of nervous system support has allowed me to make the reoccurring decision to hold the path.” David, Director
“The interesting thing about the session was that it made me more aware of my body by helping me to get out of my mind. I didn’t realise how little awareness I had of my body and its sensations until I did this class.” Brooke, Business Owner
