Yoga can be a powerful, healing tool for easing anxiety and stress. In this workshop we will use various techniques to relieve stress and anxiety. Drawing from Melissa’s training, education and experience as a trauma-sensitive yoga teacher and licensed clinical social worker, we will incorporate breathwork (pranayama), gentle yoga poses (asana), mindfulness, grounding techniques and art therapy into a healing practice designed to bring the nervous system back into balance. We will explore the resiliency of the mind-body and capacity to “rest and restore” from daily stressors. Participants will leave this workshop with practical tools to cultivate balance in daily life.
All levels welcome.
