What are the benefits to the 8 week course?
Anxiety and depression can leave us feeling isolated and alone, this course is an opportunity to meet and spend time with others in similar circumstances.
Learn ways to regulate the nervous system based on yogic techniques, to enable you to relax quickly and begin to undo neurologically entrained responses to thoughts and perceived threats.
The practices offered on the course can be learnt and engaged in without long-term guidance, allowing you to take your mental health into your own hands. Evidence based psycho-education about the body and mind support this sense of empowerment.
The mindfulness practices that are taught provide an opportunity to see through the habits that lead to suffering.
The course offers welcoming space where people can feel accepted by others and work on developing their own self-acceptance and compassion, all of which are imperative for healing.
