The Well Belly
Presenting Olga Chwa's Guide to Travel Belly

1. Ground and settle: notice the Earth beneath you and let gravity take some of your burden. Be here now and drop your bundle, let the tongue soften, take a deep-abdominal breath, ease the buttocks, hips and pelvic floor.
2. Gentle movements: hips and low-backs, explore of your trunk's range of motion: lengthen, side-bends, twists, forward/backward bends and cross-lateral opposite elbow to knee.

7. Yoga Nidra: conscious, deep relaxation practice. A sleep supplement and tool for regeneration and creating new habits and patterns. Download the recording from this event following links in your Eventbrite followup emails or find thematic downloads in the shop.
