Dr. Chelsea Jackson Roberts - SA2DCJ

Join Chelsea in this workshop created to introduce meditation, breathing exercises, and guided deep relaxation practices to unpack the personal stresses that take us out of alignment within our daily lives and use that knowing as fuel to move deeper into our practice. One of the biggest challenges with starting a meditation practice or attempting to integrate embodied relaxation techniques is relaxing the mind and body enough to begin. Chelsea’s workshops are committed to working with practitioners who are new and possibly overwhelmed by not knowing where or how to begin a meditation practice. Through gentle yoga movements, breathing exercises, guided meditation, and opportunities for reflection, Chelsea’s technique will guide you into sustainable and practical ways to begin a daily meditation practice that will support clarity, and provide ways to harness internal power through the breath.
