In many ways, stress defines the modern human condition. When we are balanced, stress naturally subsides. When chronic, stress causes many health issues- including anxiety- which are epidemic today. Accompanied by physical, mental, emotional and
behavioral symptoms, stress and anxiety have the potential to adversely impact every facet of our lives.
Yoga sees anxiety as the call to change a life that is out of balance. While living with stress + anxiety may feel overwhelming, you are not powerless against it. Yoga + Ayurveda provide time tested means to manage the symptoms of stress and anxiety, while understanding and removing the root causes. By cultivating selfawareness,(through physical postures, breathing practices, meditation, self-reflection, relaxation techniques, nutrition and self-care) Yoga + Ayurveda empower us to make choices that support our well-being and quality of life.

Common causes and symptoms of stress and anxiety
Holistic strategies for managing and removing stress + anxiety
Specific yoga postures and sequences to calm anxiety and support well being
Essential breathing practices to calm the mind and sympathetic nervous system
Guided relaxation and meditation techniques to balance the nervous system
