Trika Yoga, 188-190 North Street, Southville, Bristol, United Kingdom
At The Studio: Yoga for Anxiety | £20
It's been an anxious year for many and as we navigate the slow return of normality and social situations, feelings of uncertainty, stress and panic may be even more heightened. But what if we could transform the way we see anxiety and view it in a different light?
Join Emily for this extended practice to explore, understand and learn how to navigate feelings of anxiety in the body and mind.
We will be delving into pranayama (breath techniques), movements to release tension in the body (particularly in the neck, shoulders and tummy) and techniques to relax and restore the body and mind. We will be creating space physically and mentally to invite more self acceptance and find peace of mind away from any anxious thoughts.
Emily will be applying her own experiences dealing with her anxiety to guide you through this practice - "Back in 2012 when I first started yoga, anxiety controlled my life; and I often felt powerless to it. I was scared to leave the house some days and the simplest tasks felt overwhelming. Yoga has given me the tools to control my anxiety, I try my best to teach people what has helped me."
The main takeaway from the workshop will be having a greater understanding of what is anxiety, why you might have it and how yoga might help us move through our anxieties as we start to navigate social situations again, crafting a healthier and happier state for our bodies and minds.
