Feeling stressed, anxious or overwhelmed? You're not alone. Chronic stress and anxiety are conditions that afflict more of us than ever before. Anxiety is the most prevalent mental health issue in Australia and many other countries. There's now a growing body of research to support practising yoga poses, mindfulness, and breathing slowly (as you do in yoga class) are some the most effective tools to regulate the stress response and rebalance the nervous system. This simple, easeful Yoga For Stress and Anxiety Workshop with Emma Ceolin will take you on a journey to explore yoga as a powerful tool to find the breath, balance the nervous system, calm the mind and self regulate. Expect science-based lectures, connecting with others moving through similar, learning about the nervous system, restorative yoga, mindful breathing techniques and aromatherapy. Take a deep, sweet breath and soften back in. All levels and experience welcome. Suitable for absolute beginners.
I can honestly say that yesterday after this workshop was the most relaxed I have been in eight years. I didn’t realise that with a great instructor, a mat and some extra equipment that I would be leaving the room with a strong epiphany. I love the process we did of talking, listening and understanding stress/anxiety before getting into the practice- because it is crucial to understand what is happening in your body before you try and change anything. I loved learning about aromatherapy and swatching the different senses.
I recently attended the anxiety workshop in Paris, France and gained so much from the experience. Emma is a true inspiration and it's impossible not to be swept up in her passion for yoga. She also knows her subject inside out, so you know you're in safe hands, and she's a lovely person too. As a result of attending the workshop, I now intend to take up yoga properly.
Emma exceeded all my expectations, from sharing her story purposefully, cultivating a safe environment, sharing so much mental health knowledge that blew my mind and gave me new tools to take home including specific poses to do on the mat and breathing exercises. I walked in nervous and anxious and by the end of the workshop I felt deeply relaxed and felt great joy and appreciation to my self for attending and Emma for a brilliant and beautiful workshop.
I recently attended the stress and anxiety workshop, for me there were two things that stood out. Firstly, Emma comes from a place of experience, she has been there, she has experienced depression and anxiety, she understands. This instantly makes her relatable. Secondly, you walk away with practical tools that you can implement immediately, they are simple and easy to do and can be done in the moment when you feel your anxiety levels starting to rise. Thank you Emma for creating such a great workshop.
