Mind-Body Workshop

June 29 @ 9:00 am 12:00 pm


A mind-body workshop for first responders and outdoor athletes to optimize performance while maintaining stress resilience. This experiential training is designed to help those who work, play and perform in risk-inherent environments like the mountains optimize flow state, work with fear, and perform with a strong mind and flexible nervous system.

Attendees will:
– gain an understanding of how to self-direct their meditation training and select from the many types of meditations available.
– explore the effects of specific types of meditation, breathwork, self-regulation techniques and yoga poses on the nervous system and stress response.
– map their individual Stress Signature and use this to individualize their mind-body practice.
– gain an understanding of how to optimize flow state.
– create pre- and post-performance routines, and a daily mindfulness habit that support self-regulation, mental and emotional health, stress resilience and
performance.

As part of this workshop, attendees will develop trauma sensitivity to personal needs when working with mind-body practices. This includes creating safety, identifying stress reactions, and learning self-regulating techniques to foster choice, context and connection. This understanding additionally supports the ability to attune and attend to the nervous system needs of others.
