‘Change yourself and you have done your part in changing the world’ -Paramahansa Yogananada
Empowerment in Action
Yoga Therapy to support the immune system, respiratory system and contributing to stress reduction
5th September 2020
Complementary for health care workers
In a time of such uncertainty, you will find empowerment in action.The enormity of our current global situation leaves most of us feeling disempowered and even hopeless. As individuals we may feel out of control; of ourselves and our global community. When faced with crises how can we return to our innate ability to fortify ourselves physically emotionally and mentally? Yoga teaches us the way.
In this morning retreat you will learn how to self-evaluate so you can respond to the areas in your life that require your attention. Taking time out of your usual routine, you will learn movement and breathing based on scientifically researched that boost immunity while relieving stress. The meditation works to change inner patterns of thinking while connecting you to your own true source. These are life long learning skills which lead to better health, increased joy, contentment and compassion.
Stress, in and of itself, is not harmful, in fact, short bursts of stress have been shown to boost immunity. When stress is prolonged however, it is highly destructive to our immunity, leaving us susceptible to illness. These yoga therapy practices are an elixir to dis-ease, and can teach you how to recognise and respond to stressors, thereby supporting the immune system and your overall wellbeing.
