$108.00 Relaxation Response For Stress Relief
$75.00 Relaxation Response For Stress Relief
This series will weave together the latest research on stress and stress relief with yoga theory to create an informative and embodied experience. Practicing the Relaxation Response will anchor this workshop; it is a well-researched reaction within the body beneficial in reducing stress hormone levels, lowering blood pressure, and lessening muscle tension, activated through various mind-body activities, including yoga, meditation, and breath practices. Each participant will receive a solo introductory session to enhance personalization. Participants will gain practices to relieve and manage stress in their daily lives. The workshop is based on the principles and practices of yoga therapy. Yoga therapy is the application of yoga to promote health and well-being within a therapeutic relationship that includes personalized assessment, goal setting, lifestyle management, and yoga practices for individuals or small groups.
