Wed8:15-9:40pm20.0910Kinki Luk1220YR101
Today's professional climate demands that we perform at high levels externally, but gives us no guidance for assessing our inner emotional and spiritual progress. When the nervous system is in a chronic state of overdrive, the emotional regions of the brain initiate a stress response. This response can lock the physical, mental, and emotional patterns deeper into place. It also contributes to anxiety and depression. Promoting well-being in the parasympathetic nervous system, the workshop is designed with contemplative and relaxation-based yoga practices to calm the mind and build resilience to stress.
