“Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.” — Maya Angelou
Yoga for Anxiety
Five Wednesdays: Jan 8th – Feb 5th. 7:30 – 9:00pm
It is easy to feel overwhelmed by the pace of our lives or by the challenge of balancing work, family and social obligations. Anxiety tends to build on itself, maybe triggered by an event, then bolstered by other thoughts that create a bigger wave of anxiety.
This introductory course provides a basis for first noticing anxiety early in the cycle, before it becomes overwhelming. You will then develop breathing and mindfulness tools to be able to reduce anxiety and panic at any time. Finally, you will learn daily techniques to help keep anxiety in check, so you are less likely to experience episodes of panic.
Domonick applies his background in Cognitive Neuroscience to help you understand the brain’s stress/anxiety response and how these meditation and breathing techniques can help you change your brain over time to be less anxious.
The practice gives you a sense of efficacy, so you feel you can do something about your anxiety, instead of feeling overwhelmed by it.
