Breath and Your Body: Reduce Stress, Anxiety and Pain (WORKSHOP)

May 23, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am


Workshop: Saturday May 23rd from 9:00am-11:30am

Presented by: Amy LePage-Hansen, Yoga Therapist









Discover a Freer, More Easeful YOU. 

Explore the connection between the patterns of your breath and stress, tension, pain or anxiety. Learn tools to nourish relaxation, cultivate greater awareness and allow for change. This workshop focuses on breathing mechanics, therapeutic breath and movement exercises.

This interactive, experiential workshop will lead you through understanding how the body and breath are linked and how tapping into your breath as a tool can help you break the cycle that keeps you feeling rigid, anxious or tense in your body, mind, and life.

This workshop will include:
– understanding the anatomy and mechanics of breathing so that you can move and breath with more ease.
– unwinding physical tension (like jaw clenching or shoulder tightness or pain) so that you can feel more free in your body and experience life without tension or pain holding you back from doing the things you love.
– learning the connections between thoughts, emotions and the physical body and how you may be perpetuating the tension cycle without realizing it, PLUS how to reverse it.
We will explore: 
– restorative and slow, small therapeutic movements that will make you feel relaxed, open, and provide you some immediate relief.
– breath awareness exercises that you can do any time to feel more present, centered, and calm despite what’s happening in the outside world.
– the use of mudra and mantras for reducing tension and anxiety.
– anatomy through images, skeleton models and individual and group exercises so that you have a better understanding of your unique body and how it functions at its best.
