Anxiety is everywhere. It’s in those days where we feel so restless it’s hard to sit still, those times where obsessive thinking and worry consume us, but especially those crappy moments where panic cripples us and we feel completely alone. Statistics show that anxiety is now the number one mental health problem in Australia, United States, and many other countries. Over time it takes it’s toll on self-perceptions, relationships and wellbeing, leading to insomnia, high blood pressure, fatigue, obesity, depression, heart disease and cancer. But there’s a range of strategies we can use to alleviate anxiety and yoga is absolutely one of them.
This gentle 2 hour workshop with Emma Ceolin from MNDFL Project will take you on a journey to soften back into yourself again and explore yoga as a tool to calm the nervous system.
