“Stress Busters: Yoga Tools to Manage Stress and Anxiety”

—with Lori Wieder, C-IAYT® Yoga Therapist

No matter what challenging situation you face—demanding job, kids, injury, illness, major life transition or circumstance—the common denominator, and root cause of suffering (dukkha), is the stress that results. And when stress shifts into anxiety, the symptoms and their affects can become even more severe.

Yoga philosophy and practice offers us many tools for stress reduction—and also for actual stress transformation. In this 2.5-hour workshop you’ll learn practical techniques grounded in yoga’s wisdom teachings, including...

  • How to view stress and anxiety through the lens of yoga, and ways to use this perspective to calm the nervous system and create more balance and resiliency.

  • Practices and reflections to help redefine beliefs that may be keeping you in a state of stress and anxiousness.

  • Specific practices and techniques for transforming stress at every level—body, breath, mind and spirit.

Space is limited.  Cost:  $50    (or $45 for PYP Members)

“Heart Space and Higher Self: Yoga Tools to Nourish Your Spirit”

—with Lori Wieder, C-IAYT® Yoga Therapist

As humans we are naturally wired to have busy minds making it easy to get absorbed in constant worry or rumination, losing sight of our connection to purpose, peacefulness, heart and spirit.

Yoga philosophy offers us a holistic model for maintaining this connection—the Pancha Kosha model—as well as other specific techniques for nourishing ourselves on every level so that we can connect more easily and more often with our “higher self.”  This 2.5-hour workshop will guide you through yoga teachings, reflections and practices including…

  • Assessing which aspects of yourself may be undernourished or underattended, and strategies to bring those aspects back into balance.

  • Yoga practices for cultivating a “Bhavana mindset,” the foundation for a strong, consistent connection to higher self.

  • Developing small, simple strategies for connecting more naturally and more often to your true (loving and wise) nature.

Space is limited.  Cost:  $50    (or $45 for PYP Members)
