      Testing the Announcements function   06/20/2016

      I have been going back and forth with IPB Support on this; it seems that only Admin can edit this field, but I want the moderators to be able to use this too. Still exploring.

    2. Classes you want to see

  7. Relaxation, Rejuvenation, Regeneration, and Recommended Reading!

    1. All topics relating to the three "R"s; now the "five 'R's"

      The forgotten part of the ST system, and forgotten, too, from the majority of all other Western exercise systems!

      This is the place to talk about your practise, or to post tips and ideas for teaching relaxation, and the other "r" words.

      "Relaxation" might be a Yoga Nidra-like practise, or a seated/lying meditation.

      While in Charlottesville, I have uploaded sample scripts and .mp3 files of some of relaxation the scripts I presented here, too; please feel free to upload your own for others to try out.

      Added today: the fourth and fifth 'R's (recommended reading!). All suggestions we make here will have been thoroughly vetted and digested—and all will have immense impact if you read them too.
