WHAT IS A DROP-IN ONLINE CLASS? Just pay for the class and show up (or listen to the recording if you can’t make it live). No weekly commitment or monthly subscription required.
BEFORE YOU PURCHASE: Please note that this upcoming Drop-In Class on December 18 will require you to lie on the ground and/or be side-lying. Irene will be teaching a lesson that is unique to being on the floor. While she will not provide modifications for using a chair, standing, or being on a couch or bed, you're welcome to modify for your own comfort.
*Lying directly on the carpet or using a yoga mat is perfect (or a couple of mats for more cushion). It can help to have a few larger bath towels nearby for some extra cushion and/or to fold up as a thin pillow when on your back or side-lying.
This drop-in online class will be focused on learning how to naturally let go of stress and tension - all via the lens of the somatic and autonomic nervous system.
The intent will be to bring in more space and ease throughout the entire body by practicing the basics of nervous system embodiment, via my skills as a Somatic Experiencing, Somatic Practice, and Feldenkrais practitioner.
SOME NEUROSENSORY SKILLS WE WILL EXPLORE ARE:
ZOOM VIDEO CONFERENCE
Zoom is a fabulous video conferencing software that allows us to record video and audio while having a group of people online at the same time. Once you register you’ll receive an email confirmation with the link that will get you in to the class.
“WHAT IF I CAN'T MAKE THAT DAY AND TIME?”
No problem! This class will be recorded and the video and audio recording will be sent to everyone who registered. This means you can participate and gain the benefits of this guided class no matter where you are in the world and you have the recording to practice to your heart’s (and nervous system’s) content!!
“DO I HAVE TO SIT, STAND, LIE DOWN?”
This lesson will be suitable for ALL resting positions, and you are free to shift from one position to another at any time throughout the class.
“WHAT DO I NEED TO PARTICIPATE?”
No need for fancy clothes, or props. Just you, your biology, and the environment, together as one. (Oh, and showing up with a curious beginner’s mind!!)
"At first I thought how boring it was following Irene’s instructions, but I did, and felt a connection to my body I have never experienced before. I never thought something so subtle can be so powerful
I am new to Irene's work and already a lot of childhood trauma has surfaced to be integrated, just by willing to heal."
My first time and really enjoyed it. Especially useful in these current changing and unusual times.
"I absolutely loved the Drop In Class. I really appreciate you Irene, for creating this space and guiding us through such powerful and potent practices."
I really enjoyed the class. The work was very subtle but highly engaging with the after effects of increased physical presence, general relaxation and calmness being felt.
My NS did take the cues and released some "less desirable" sensations later in the day but I knew I was storing some unresolved trauma which is why I took the class. So all-in-all a win for my healing!
"I felt that the class was very helpful for me and learned about how working with my body is being present with how my body is reacting and then adjusting to help those reactions work themselves out instead of letting those reactions take control."
