Intro to Mindful Resilience Yoga
Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity seats available

In this workshop we will explore and practice a few simple tools in dealing.....chronic stress and post-traumatic stress. First we will review the causes and components of stress and the ways that stress negatively impacts health. Then we will discuss ways to maximize your practice to enhance the conditions that support recovery and resilience and understand how yoga practices "undo" the negative effects of stress. We will then practice 2 breathing techniques that have been found to be helpful for maintaining strength, stability, and flexibility in the face of life's challenges. There will be a short period for questions and answers at the end. 

Students should bring/wear: a pen and paper for notes!
