Friday 27th August (7-9.30pm)

Yoga For Your ASS - Anxiety, Stress & Sleep! with Jaz

Want to use the tools and practices of yoga to kick your ASS (anxiety, stress and sleep issues)?!

If you find yourself falling down the rabbit hole of getting lost in your thoughts, (or controlled by them completely) and the idea of getting a FULL and peaceful nights sleep sounds like something you'd really like to re-introduce to your life then this Friday evening course could be just what you're looking for.

Between the hours of 7pm-9pm, we will explore a range of different yoga tools and practices, including breath-work, visualisations, mudra (hand gestures), mantras, yoga poses and mindfulness based techniques that have all been linked to reducing stress, anxiety and improving sleep. We will also explore some yogic philosophy that will be relevant in helping the mind achieve our goals of more peaceful nights (and days as a result!)

These are tools you can then take home with you and put into practice as part of a regular night-time routine (no it doesn't have to be long!), that over time and practice will help you to better manage stress, anxiety and difficulties with falling or staying asleep.

Run by previous studio manager Jasmine, she uses her qualifications training and experience as a Yoga Therapist to tailor a specific set of tools that have been proven to support people with stress, sleep and anxiety.

FOUNDATIONS OF YOGA PHILOSOPHY

So you’ve heard your yoga teacher giving quote from ancient text …maybe ‘chitta vritti nirodha’ about some monkey and the  mind, or other verses from the Yoga Sutra’s, or the Bhagavad Gita….but what are these text’s, in what language and what religion, and what are the 8 lilmbs??!! And did you know that the physical practice of yoga, the Asana, is only a small part, maybe 10%,of the whole yoga system??
 
This workshop will weave together our understanding of the ancient text from the Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali’s 8 Limbs to understand the history of the Yogic Life and how we can incorporate some of these wisdoms into our everyday life, and to gain an understanding of Yoga beyond the physical practice.
 
Jana is passionate about Yoga Philosophy and contemplative studies and has been studying them for over 20 years.  With a degree in Psychology she is able to align these ancient text with our western understanding of the human condition, and how we can use these wisdoms in our everyday life to overcome our modern day problems.
 
We will finish the workshop with a meditation and sound healing.
