Yoga for Anxiety: Practice and Practical Tips
An experiential practice on and off the mat, as well as practical tips for yoga practitioners and teachers using yoga to transform anxiety.
This workshop promises a day of practice and take away practical tips for yoga practitioners and teachers using yoga to transform anxiety. We’ll adapt asana, pranayama, and meditation specifically to calm and focus the mind and give you tools to re-create the effects on your own and in your classes.
The mind is our most powerful tool for growth and transformation. Like any powerful force, it can be misused. Persistent anxiety is a wake up and self-protection system run a muck. Centuries ago and ever since then yoga practices are used to harness and direct our minds where we want them to go. The practices work, but we have to keep doing them. Distraction is blessed relief, but it is not a long term solution. We need reliable methods to help us cultivate a calm, clear and tranquil mind that we can live in peacefully and productively in the world. In this workshop experience the benefit for yourself and walk away with ways to re-create it on your own and in your classes.
A licensed clinical psychologist in the USA, as well as an experienced yoga teacher and yoga therapist, Lisa will lead you through an experiential practice offering practical tips specifically designed to calm and focus the mind in order to transform anxiety.
Open to all.
What our students say
I have really enjoyed the course, mostly the physical practices and integrating asana and pranayama (with retentions) together. Something I’ll practice myself and likely introduce into my teaching. It has re-inspired my interest in this type of yoga Jane Robertson on Mental Health Basics, August 2015
