This relieving anxiety & stress workshop aims to help you bring an equilibrium, steadiness and balance back to your life.
We may all feel anxious or stressed sometimes in our lives; perhaps you have suffered a trauma, are trying to cope with grief, or have found the last few years simply overwhelming. Sometimes the prospect of change can make you anxious, or for women entering menopause, changes in your body can also induce anxiety or stress.
Whatever it is that makes you anxious, when your anxiety or stress starts to become all-consuming, learning how to use movement and breathing techniques to take back control of your mind and body can be very useful. Discovering how to use your body and breath to connect with your calming ‘rest and digest’ mode can help to bring your mind and body back to the present moment, helping to ease tension in your body and calm the chatter in your mind. When you are calm, it is so much easier to embrace changes in your life and to re-frame a negative mindset to a much more positive one.
This relieving anxiety & stress yoga workshop offers you the tools to help take back control by offering simple grounding exercises to help you orient yourself into the present moment if your mind is running away with itself. Gentle trauma-informed yoga (on a mat or chair) focuses on empowerment: offering you the opportunity to decide how to move your own body, perhaps helping to ease any stored tension. Also, you will practise simple, calming yoga breathing techniques that you can use at home to help calm the chatter of your mind.
