Do you sometimes feel tired, exhausted or generally run down?  Do you find yourself losing your temper easily or getting frustrated with others or even yourself?  Do you have any illness that seems to have come from nowhere?Well, you may be suffering from stress.

In our day and age, stress is the most common reason for time taken off work.  It has produced a myriad of diseases which seem to have no organic cause, and which appear to have no apparent cure.

The use of Yogic practices have been proven to help manage stress.  When we notice our bodily sensations, our breathing and our thoughts, we can begin to see where stress affects us as individuals.  Each person is different, so the effects of stress will show up differently in all of us.

This workshop will explore the physiological nature of stress and how our bodies react to it. We will begin to learn techniques that can, very quickly, help to reduce the negative effects of stress. We will use Asana to free up tension in the body, exploring where stress affects us physically.  We will then use Pranayama or techniques to improve our breathing, which can thus initiate the ‘relaxation response’, encouraging the nervous system to relax.

Through the practice of meditation we begin to become aware of our mental habits and can slowly, though practice, train the mind to move from a state of tension to relaxation.  A long period of Yoga Nidra or deep relaxation at the end will allow the body to completely let go of deeply held tension, and leave us feeling refreshed and renewed and ready to cope with what life throws at us.
