Therapeutic Yoga for Stress, Anxiety and Fatigue
This afternoon of embodied awareness will calm the mind, balance the nervous system, reduce anxiety, eliminate frantic energy, and bring us back to a place of serenity so that we are better able to navigate these uncertain times.
Type of Event
This workshop will run live online via Zoom from 15h30 - 18h00 BST, and is bookable via Yoga Creation London.
In this most unusual of years, you may have been feeling more stressed, anxious or exhausted. You may be experiencing times when your mind can’t stop spinning and you may have been having more difficulty sleeping, all of which are completely normal reactions to everything that has been happening this year.
What we need at times like this are ways to calm and re-centre, to come out of our frantic minds and back to our breath and bodies.
This workshop will offer yoga tools that we can reach for to restore a sense of inner peace and access the deep rest we crave, allowing our heightened nervous systems to calm back down.
The afternoon will include grounding, mindful and somatic work to bring us back into our bodies and gentle movements to release tension in the body from tip to toe, allowing energy to flow freely but calmly through the body again.
We will experience the importance of allowing ourselves to slow down, to just “be”, to really connect to our breath and fully inhabit our bodies once again, which in turn will allow the mind to begin to quieten.
Once the body has found some ease and the mind has found some calm we will drop into some longer held restorative poses to soak up some much-needed deep rest and recharge our batteries, finishing with a yoga nidra (deep yoga sleep) practice.
This afternoon of embodied awareness will calm the mind, balance the nervous system, reduce anxiety, eliminate frantic energy, and bring us back to a place of serenity so that we are better able to navigate these uncertain times
