Yoga means union. When we are anxious and stressed, we suffer and become disconnected from ourselves. Anxiety is a common mental health issue. By attending this workshop you will learn techniques to discover more peace and ease. Research reveals that regular yoga practice supports the treatment of mental health illnesses and other stress related health problems. Yoga calms the nervous system, increases awareness physically, mentally and emotionally, lowers stress, reduces muscle tension and enhances attention and concentration.
This workshop will teach you ways to use your body and breath to shift your emotional state. You will practice:
- Simple centering practices
- Identifying and monitoring feelings
- Slow, mindful movement to discharge tension
- Relaxation inducing restorative postures
- Pranayama (breath work) to quiet the mind
- Guided relaxation and meditation
Leave this workshop with resources to help you cope with anxiety. Hand-outs will be provided and questions will be welcomed. This workshop is open to anyone thirteen years of age and older. Wear loose comfortable clothing and bring a mat if you have one or rent one at 889 Yoga.
