Yoga for Emotional Balance
With Janice Gates
Starting on 11 May 2019 Go to schedule
In this highly interactive and experiential day, we will draw on the ancient teachings of yoga and mindfulness as well as leading edge material from somatic psychology and neuroscience to learn simple, but potent practices to reduce anxiety, lift a low mood, clear the mind and open the heart. Includes breath-based asana practice, pranayama, lecture, discussion, interactive dyads and recorded practices to do at home. All levels are welcome.
Morning session 9.30 - 12.30
The first half of the day will focus on practices to support emotional balance and reduce reactivity in body, mind and heart. Includes several ‘mini- practices’ that you can do anywhere, anytime, followed by one longer, integrated asana and pranayama practice, as well as basic foundational principles of why and how these practices work.
Afternoon session 14.00 - 17.00
In the second half of the day we will go deeper into the subtleties of the breath, the energy body and the nervous system, integrating the philosophical and physiological underpinnings of yoga and mindfulness that inform these practices. Includes in-depth asana and pranayama, as well as self-reflective meditation practices, interactive dyads and time for discussion. Attending both sessions is recommended, but not required.
