Yoga 101

Would you like to get longer air time out of your bottle?  Breath work can have a profound effect in calming the nervous system and assist in conserving air supply. Introducing a routine Yoga practice into your fitness regimen could be the missing key in finding that life saving breath.  We know the thought of introducing Yoga to your fitness routine may be overwhelming.  We designed this workshop to make that transition easy and painless.  You’ll be introduced to the foundations of yoga and the proper body mechanics to help make your yoga practice beneficial and fun. We will focus heavily on the breath and the benefits you will see and feel with the use of proper breathing techniques. With the high stress and physical demands put on Fire Fighters, a Yoga practice could be your missing piece of PPE.

Group Nutrition Coaching 101

In a world of fad diets and easily available unhealthy choices it’s no surprise we have a long list of health issues in America. This session will aim to offer simple, healthy ideas for any busy Firefighter. We will not only talk about the foods we eat but our lifestyles, relationships and life choices that inevitably affect our physical health. While it’s true that ‘we are what we eat,’ many things are also eating at us! These can cause a magnitude of extra stress and can lead to constriction and heart attacks/strokes. Group shopping/cooking option available. Please inquire about workshop cost, as prices vary based on number of participants and duration. All our workshops can be customized to any group or organization and many can be easily bundled together.

iRest Yoga Nidra Workshop/Class

Explore, discover and find ways of calming the body and mind with the practice and experience of iRest meditation. iRest is an evidence-based, mind- body transformative practice that leads to psychological and physical healing and well-being.  Its practice is integrative as it offers healing to the various unresolved issues and traumas that are present and stored in your body and mind, and restorative as it enables you to recognize your innate peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances of life.  We will explore the steps of iRest, restorative yoga poses that offer comfort physically to the body to help better find rest, relaxation and ease, as well as calming to the mind.


Leading Mindfully

Are you being present? The job, life, and the world can be stressful and hard to manage. There is so much that can happen within our nervous system in the midst of trauma and stress. We develop coping mechanisms to help us deal.  Are your coping mechanisms harming you or serving you?  We will take inventory of the stressors in your life, your coping mechanisms, what triggers you may have and discover what is serving you and what isn’t.  We will explore ways to recognize when you are being triggered and look at other coping skills that could better serve you.  Life is meant to be experienced, not just lived. You’re in a career of service to the community, we must also know how to serve ourselves and those at home.

This session offers ways to practically and intentionally move and strengthen our body. These functional exercises can be done anywhere with zero equipment. We will work every muscle group, from head to toes and multiple variations and modifications will be demonstrated for varying levels of fitness and ability.
