Shifting Out Of Shutdown
This 70-minute yoga practice offers practices to begin to shift out of shutdown. By shutdown, I mean a state in our nervous system where we have very little energy. We might feel frozen or stuck, unable to get out of bed, feeling hopeless or helpless or overwhelmed to the point of being unable to move. Chronic shutdown might feel like burnout, depression, or exhaustion. In this video, we explore becoming unstuck through gentle movement, warming the system with breath and sound, and ways to connect even when the connection feels difficult.
