A wide range of factors, including the Covid pandemic, continue to place strain on the lives of many. These factors affect us on all levels and manifest in symptoms such as anxiety and insomnia.
In this workshop, we will consider the application of principles from the perspective of the teachings of Ayurveda and Yoga, which are helpful for managing anxiety and promoting better sleep.
We will explore lifestyle practices, routines, and diet as recommended in Ayurvedic teachings. As well as, asanas, pranayama practices, chanting, meditation, visualisation, yoga nidra and working with the relaxation response.
- Understand the main causes, and knock-on effects of stress on the body
- Learn how to manage and deal with these issues.
- Discover how to promote better quality sleep to gain greater mental clarity, courage, focus and attention
- Experience a yoga programme which will target how to manage these conditions.
Join us in this informative and highly relevant workshop to gain greater knowledge of the Ayurveda and Yoga perspectives on the issues of sleep and anxiety, and how to apply the full range of tools that they both have to offer us.
With greater understanding we are empowered to help ourselves.
