Yoga for Anxiety – Stress Less, Become Your Best
Date: Saturday 17th August
Time: 11:00am – 1:30pm
Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia. On average, 1 in 4 people will experience anxiety. Yoga therapy is an effective, complementary tool in the management of anxiety and stress.
Stress is not a bad thing – in fact, it is a normal and necessary reaction to difficult circumstances. However, it is our interpretation and reaction to stress, and whether or not we can let go of the stress after the event has passed, which will determine our ability to return to equilibrium and clarity.
* Understand what anxiety is and how it affects relationships with self and others.
* Learn how normal, everyday anxiety can shift into dysfunctional and life limiting fear.
* Learn gentle, mindful yogic practices that can be used to transform fear, stress and anxiety as well as help you be feel and know your body and its messages

* Be reminded of the power of slowing down
* Tap into the practices of self-compassion and gratitude.
All are welcome to this workshop. No yoga experience is required.
