Anxiety and depression, which can be experienced independently of each other or at the same time, require subtly different approaches.
Depression can express itself in different ways, and is often accompanied by anxiety. Each person responds differently to the emotional burden of depression. Participants will learn fundamental principles that will help you find natural relief and support the nervous system. This work is a way of creating “internal sunlight” so needed during the long, cold days of winter.
Anxiety can be met at its level of tension with yoga poses and breathing techniques that help drain the body of tension and allow for deep restoration. Poses have been selected for their specific physiological and psychological benefits to rebalance and retrain the nervous system to better manage stress.
With a deeper understanding of how yoga and mindfulness can be integrated into daily life, there is greater empowerment to create and maintain positive mental health without being held back by stress anxiety and depression.
