ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
experiencing feelings of unease, anxiety, stress or
More and more people are enduring some or all of these symptoms. At a
certain time in my life, I developed a debilitating case of depression coupled
with anxiety. My mind raced constantly causing me to be unable to sleep
despite being mentally and physically exhausted. I felt as if I had a permanent
blockage in my chest preventing me from taking a full breath. I began to feel
hopeless and started to have serious harmful thoughts. I felt this way for the
next two years. Day in and day out.
As a nurse, I was able to recognize that I was experiencing anxiety and
depression but could not find anything that was helpful to ease my burden.
Then I found yoga.
Shortly after beginning asana practice I began to feel better. It did not
happen overnight, but the tightness in my chest began to loosen. For the first
time in years I was able to breathe and for the first time in my life I began to
really know my body and explore the connection it has with my breath and my
mind. In short, yoga saved my life.
Now I want to offer you some of the tools that helped me on my journey.
In this workshop, you will discover how certain yoga poses can help bring you
a feeling of ease. You will receive meditation and breathing practices that you
can utilize for healing. We will discuss other tools beneficial for bringing a
sense of peace and calmness to your day. You will leave the class feeling less
alone and less fearful and more empowered, connected and seen.
