Ground, Refocus, Rebalance
Symptoms of anxiety are diverse. From dissociation, to ruminating on past and future events, to physical and mental tension (among many, many more). But however it affects us, to find relief we're generally looking to refocus our attention on the present moment and calm our nervous system. The techniques taught in this workshop are simple, practical and evidence-based ways to help us achieve both of these.
There's no one-size-fits-all cure so you'll try a range of techniques so that you can find the ones that work best for you. We'll cover:
Somatic movement for grounding
Mindfulness and meditation to refocus attention
Pranayama (breathing techniques) to regulate the nervous system
We'll also dive into a little bit of yogic philosophy. Looking at how it can help us develop a kinder relationship with ourselves and a more positive outlook on life.
You don't need to have any previous yoga experience to participate. Just a willingness to learn new ways to support your mental health.*

Based On Research,
Taught From The Heart
Yoga has consistently been the thing I turn to to deal with my anxiety and improve my mental health. Reliably giving me space from my whirling mind and, often, cruel inner voice. It's had an undeniably positive impact on my mental health and over the years I’ve been drawn to learn about how and why it has this powerful effect. When I was a teenager, I used to suffer badly from anxiety. At the time though, I didn't even know it was anxiety. It had woven its way into so much of my personality and identity that I just thought it was me. There was no separation between me and my anxiety. When I started practicing yoga regularly, I always left feeling peaceful and more relaxed. It was genuinely the only thing that ever gave me a break from my restless mind. And it was the beginning of me realising that I didn’t have to live with constant worry. That there were actually calmer, kinder thoughts living inside my head too. I had no idea why it had this effect. But I knew it was real. And it was what kept me going back for more. Since qualifying as a yoga teacher, I’ve been naturally drawn towards further trainings that specifically look at how and why yoga has such a beneficial effect on our mental health. This workshop is a culmination of what I’ve learnt so far. And I’m so excited to be able to share these life-changing techniques and practices with you. So if you’re looking for ways to naturally support yourself and your mental health then come along and see what impact these yogic techniques can have for you.

**Anxiety is complex and affects us all differently. Unfortunately, there is no quick fix or one-size-fits-all cure. While the techniques taught in this workshop may offer relief in the moment, it is not a guarantee. If you discover a technique that you feel works well for you, it can be used daily as an ongoing approach to deal with anxiety.
