Yoga, Stress and the Nervous System
This workshop provides an engaging and practical understanding of the physiology of stress and how it affects the nervous system with realistic and innovative tools to counteract the stress response to increase physical and psychological well being.
Type of Event
Too many of us exist in an overstressed, near continuous state of “fight-or-flight,” our overactive sympathetic nervous systems negatively affecting our moods, sleep cycles, muscular, cardiovascular, immune and digestive systems. In this workshop we will gain a practical and comprehensive understanding of the physiology of stress and learn highly effective yogic practices and innovative coping strategies that counteract stress and stimulate the “relaxation response.”
Come learn simple yet effective stress-busters and balancers to help keep daily tension below critical levels. Develop mindful-celebration and potent breathing practices; cognitive “thought-stopping” and reframing methods to unwind the mind. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to discover how to boost your health and wellbeing and embrace your birthright to be relaxed and centered, whatever the external world throws your way.
