FATIGUE, STRESS AND BURNOUT
Therapeutic Yoga is for anybody and everybody, whatever your ability or circumstances.
You don’t need to be able to touch your toes, you can do it sitting in a chair, you can do it lying on the floor or bed. It is a practice of awareness, a way to learn about your own body and to understand your own feelings and thoughts. Yoga can give you the time and space to move from a place of thinking to a place of feeling. It’s also a practice of acceptance - an acceptance of where we are at and of our big emotions.
I offer 1:1 sessions that are focused on the individual's needs and abilities. There are no expectations of how a session should be, it’s really about meeting each person where they are at and going from there.
Through breath and deep relaxation, meditation, mindfulness and movement practices, yoga can support us to move from the ‘stress response’ to the ‘relaxation response’, providing us with tools to regulate over-activated and fatigued body systems.
Postures (asanas) may be the thing that comes to mind when you think of yoga. But there is so much more…
Taking the time to really listen to what your mind and body are asking for, in the moment, is something that many of us could benefit from. You might find that you need to move or you might find that you just need to lie down and rest.
Stress related conditions may include anxiety, digestive issues (including Irritable bowel syndrome IBS), insomnia, depression, high blood pressure and heart disease.
