Description

Many people come to my studio to manage anxiety, depression & other mental health issues & over the years I have seen many very dear people learn to manage & even conquer such problems. The message that the mind is the culprit & cause of so much anguish & that yoga can help has been trickling through for a number of years now.
 
This informal workshop, held at the Lake will present important philosophical & historical principles from the Yoga Sutras for managing mind & emotions, we will look at anxiety, sympathetic arousal of the nervous system, the effect of long terms stress & release of hormones, such as adrenaline & cortisol & most importantly we will develop an understanding of how to practice yoga in a way that reduces symptoms & helps build resilience to future stressors rather than providing temporary relief.
 
My understanding of yoga & the way that I have taught for the last 10 years is as described in the Yoga sutras of Patanjali. Yoga is a set of tools for developing the ability to regulate the mind & emotions in order to reduce suffering & restore ease. With one in every four people affected by mental health issues during their lives, yoga wisdom is as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago. What a comfort that is.
 
The workshop will draw on key concepts from the Yoga Sutras & introduce the common scientific understanding of mental health. My hope is you will gain a deeper understanding of:
 
Role of the three Gunas in determining mood & behaviour states for restoring balance
The Kleshas for recognising our character flaws
Kriya Yoga as a plan for managing our mental health
The koshas & Yoga Nidra
Mindful movement
Breathing & Pranayama
Valuing Rest & Relaxation
 
The day begins with a short Hatha Yoga practice followed by presentations on the nature of the mind & mental health through the lens of yoga psychology & easy to follow science, culminating in an in depth look at anxiety & the many practices Yoga provides us with for countering this debilitating & distressing human experience. As well as a selection nibbles there will be as much tea as you can drink.
 
Why not bring a picnic lunch to eat on the deck whilst watching our Kingfisher & Heron about their business.
 
We will end with a restorative practice that leads into a long guided relaxation.
You don't need to have ever done yoga before, you will be safe & nothing is required of you, other than your presence & an open-heart-mind.
