Breath Awareness for Stress Management 

 
06 - 08 Aug     $400 Book Here
07 - 08 Aug     $300 Book Here

When we are stressed the nervous system triggers the flight and fright reaction. This causes us to breathe short and shallow as if we are permanently hyperventilating.   

Prolonged periods of stress and incorrect breathing leads to anxiety, panic attacks, fatigue, confusion and many other debilitating health conditions. 

The breathing practices, pre breathing technique asanas – postures to deepen the breath & Yoga Nidra - relaxation taught on this weekend will correct, reset and restore the breathing patterns resulting in greatly reducing stress and anxiety.
