Full Description

The World Health Organisation predicted for the early part of the 21st century that one in three people will suffer from stress related illness and that this would be the biggest cause of disease.

Here we are in the early part of the 21st Century and the prediction has indeed become a fact. The majority of people you speak to describe themselves as being stressed, having no time, poor diet and being generally unhappy and in poor health. We have high levels of blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, anxiety, loneliness and depression etc. There are high levels of substance abuse both legal and illegal. All of these are stress related illnesses. Stress can be found at the root of over 70% of all illness.

In this workshop we will explore how stress affects our physiology, how it manifests in our body/mind/kosha complex. We will also explore various yoga practices and herbal remedies as a way of managing stress and stress related illnesses. Herbs really come into their own when it comes down to addressing symptoms of stress. We will look at herbal adaptogens that help the body adapt to high levels of stress and the resulting imbalance and depletion. We will also explore herbal nervines which help to calm the nerves as well as improving sleep patterns.

The workshop will be facilitated by Jo Bertzeletos and Sarah Golding. Jo has been studying yoga for over 20 years and Sarah is a Herbalist and former Nurse, Sarah has worked in the field of health and alternative health for over 15 years.
