Part 1: Yoga Rx for Anxiety: With so much uncertainty about the future, the anxious mind runs away with itself in concern about what will be.Leaving the secure mooring in the here-and-now it seeks to close the gap between now and later. Since it can never do this, it becomes increasingly more worried.Yoga breaks through this self-perpetuating cycle by providing guidelines and a structure through which you can feel grounded and secure.
This weekend’s series will confer these benefits to your overall ability to find ways to combat the stress of anxious and depressed states of mind.
You will build:
Yoga as Resilience- speedy recovery from problems. The ability to bounce back from failure. To not let set backs deter you from your goals or course. To grow from mistake and only pay the price once.Yoga as Excitement-stimulate yourself favorably. To awaken passion for your life path and lead yourself enthusiastically forward. To see what positive emotion does for inspiring you to step into your personal power and transform your life into something of your own choosing which is great.
Yoga as Flow- moving freely and fluently. Letting go and not taking things so personally or so seriously. Letting the mind rise to a high place in the face of adversity.Adopting an easy-does-it attitude and an attitude of gratitude. Yoga as Peace-mental calm free from conflict. Meditation is the path that takes you there because power collects around stillness.
