Emotional Health

One off workshops, 2 - 4pm, Yogasara

.We will combine yoga postures with yoga philosophy to help us understand anxiety and depression as sensation and feedback. The more we can build our awareness of our body sensations, of the movement of the breath, and the thoughts and emotions that arise and fall, the more we build our inner resilience and emotional strength. This becomes our inner resource to get us through the darkest days
