Workshop: Stress Release: Learn to relax on the fly
Are you often stressed? Does it block you or slows you down?
In our modern life we are often overloaded and faced with many stressful situations ---
In this workshop you will learn quick and effective strategies to help dealing with stress and anxiety.
Those techniques can be used ‘on the fly’, directly before or when are facing the stressful event, in order to help you to cope better and calm down.
We will start with a short scientific review discussing evidence about the physiology of stress response.
I will then introduce distinct kinds of relaxation methods. Those methods are based on mastering breath (pranayama) and meditation. We will also look on body posture and learn several postures (asanas) designed specifically to help relax and energize. Each method will be explained and practiced.
By the end of the workshop you would own a toolbox of diverse stress-relief techniques and gain confidence in your own ability to cope with stressful situations hence reducing internal stress. The variety of methods ensures that you will find something that works for you.
A detailed written summary and a summary-card will be provided.
