WORKSHOP: Power Within: Managing Stress and Anxiety
June 6, 2019
Stress and anxiety share an imbalance of the nervous system where stimuli (overt/subtle) drive our body and mind into 'fight-flight' mode. Learn what triggers this imbalance, and practice with tools and tips to deactivate and transform it. We will work with a series of breathing techniques and grounding practices you can incorporate into your everyday life. We all have the power within us to strengthen our resilience and capacity to create new mindful pathways.
