  • Yoga for Anxiety
    with Sarah Kinsley

    Yoga for Anxiety
    with Sarah Kinsley
    Tuesdays, 7;45-9:00 pm
    January 7th-Feb 4th

    Yoga is medicine. Yoga is Self-Care.

     

    In today’s world, we can all relate to thoughts, emotions and body sensations related to anxious states. We live in a world of false refuges claiming to reduce the anxiety we feel on a daily basis. We all have habitual ways of coping-some ways are more skillful than others. Yoga offers a systematic, time-tested approach to meeting our current state of being. Yoga is a skillful and nourishing approach to meeting these states.

     

    This 6-week series will provide students an opportunity to practice asana (postures), energy expansion using the breath (pranayama) and meditations that can be used in our daily round. Classes will include psycho-education on working with anxiety based on the Yoga sutras, Somatic Experiencing (SE) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). Everyone welcome. No prior Yoga experience is necessary.
