About This Class

If you’re looking for a way to create a PAUSE in your day at home or work, a calming spot for a client or your classroom or an oasis for your child, this class will help to guide you to a little pocket of peace.

We may not always be able to carve out time or funds for a massage or beach vacation to calm us down, but we can design out spaces so that our calming environment can slowly trickle into our nervous system. By taking a short amount of time to design a calming environment, we create a place to recharge by just being in the spaces where we already spend our time.

In this 15-minute class, we’ll explore the elements you'll need to create a calming environment at work or home (or while traveling!) I’ll bring my experience as a mom, highly sensitive person (HSP), meditation and restorative yoga teacher as well as elementary school educator to help you create an environment that is soothing to your nervous system.
