Yoga for Stressful Times

 

Is it for me?

Stress is a natural part of life. However, long term affects of stress can have a significant impact on our mental, physical and emotional wellbeing. Our popular Yoga for Stressful Times courses and workshops have been designed for anyone looking to feel calmer in everyday life. Whilst we will enjoy some gentle physical movement, there will also be plenty of opportunity for informal discussion, and to practice some re-balancing breath-work, meditation and relaxation. We assume no previous knowledge or experience of yoga, the only requirement for these courses is to be able to get on and off the floor without difficulty. It is fine to be taking medication, but the course is not suitable if you are currently experiencing high levels of anxiety.

Why take a Yoga for Stressful Times course with us?

Are you looking for a supportive small group class specifically tailored to tackle stress, whether or not you have any previous experience of yoga?

We are immensely proud to be offering these short courses and individual workshops in the safe, quiet sanctuary of our studio at the top of Moulsham Mill.

Whether structured as course or as an individual workshop, these sessions will explore what happens when we get stressed, offering simple, effective, stress-relieving tools from the yoga tradition to take away.

Long term stress can be hugely depleting, both physically and mentally. In class, we will practice accessible yoga postures that can be integrated into daily routine to restore a sense of calm and enable us to access vital deep rest. 

We will also enjoy gentle breathing techniques; a joint-releasing sequence (designed to ease tension from the whole body) and, once the body has found ease, we'll settle into Yoga Nidra a led relaxation to soak up the opportunity for deep, healing rest.

As always at Yoga at the Mill, we aim to create an atmosphere that is relaxed, non-pressured and suitable for complete yoga beginners along with those who have an established practice.

Previous participants have rated these courses highly, and we have been humbled to hear how the tools they have learnt have often helped them significantly reduce stress levels, allowing them to sleep better and feel better. 

It is fine for participants to be taking medication, but please note these workshops and courses are not suitable if you are currently experiencing high levels of anxiety.
