Yoga for Emotional Well Being
This class is suitable for those suffering with anxiety, depression and other stress- related conditions. “Stress” has become a common factor that most of us accept and live with in the western world. Increased levels of stress can lead to increased levels of cortisol (responsible for our “fight or flight” response) and, in the long term, several unpleasant physical, emotional, and mental conditions.
Yoga for Emotional Well Being will use the principles of Yoga and Hakomi (Body Centred Psychotherapy) to help you re-establish and nurture a connection with your authentic self.
Using yoga asana (postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), meditation, sound, visualization, guided relaxation and self-reflection, this class will help you to locate an oasis of peace that is always available within you. This practice will help you to develop your capacity to slow down, to be still and embrace silence.
Benefits of Yoga for Emotional Well Being may include increased mental focus and clarity, increased motivation and energy, increased capacity to experience joy and laughter, and an increased sense of equanimity.
