Yoga works on the nervous system which is activated when stress and fear or anxiety are experienced. Yoga helps to keep the nervous system in balance so that you feel better able to deal with the unavoidable stresses that are part of daily life.
The course will look into the characteristics and causes of stress and fear and suggests remedies to reduce anxiety, sooth the nervous system, generate harmony and cultivate courage and fortitude. The course contains a study of the nervous system which will help to recognise the signs and symptoms of stress at an early stage, allowing to adopt healthy coping methods.
The course consists of two parts: the asana class at 6.30pm emphasises deep relaxation and prepares us for the theoretical and philosophical part of the course at 8pm. It is possible to enroll only for 1 part of the course.
