Yoga for Managing Stress

All of us experience stress in different forms in our life, and stress is a major source of ill-health and unhappiness. Stress is not necessarily bad but when things seem to run out of control it is good to know how to help yourself.

In this workshop you will learn about the effects of stress on the body and mind and find out about common advice for managing stress. You will then be guided through an extended nurturing yoga practice combining a dynamic flow with still yin yoga to regulate the effects of stress on the body, learn a breathing technique to calm the nerves and practice mindful meditation to clear the mind.

All levels of practitioners are welcome to attend.

I have been a stress counsellor for over twelve years and have supported people facing both work-related and personal challenges. My workshops combine the ancient teachings of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali with the currently recommended therapeutic principles of cognitive-behavioural therapy CBT (which have surprising similarities).
