Whether your stress comes from work, family or finances, it can have a devastating impact on your body.The good news is that your body has a powerful antidote to stress known as the “relaxation response,” which is the physiological opposite of the stress response known as fight-flight-freeze. During this class you get to lie down on soft blankets in “savasana” (relaxation pose) as Heather guides you into a state of deep relaxation.
