Mindful Yoga for Anxiety programs teach a mind-body practice that combines physical poses, controlled breathing, meditation, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT/Tapping) and relaxation to reduce stress, lower blood pressure and lower your heart rate.

Students experience results

Within a few days of starting this yoga practice, students notice better sleeping, a decrease in their panic attacks and anxiety. The yogic breathing techniques (pranayama) along with being mindful and staying in the moment calms their nervous system and relieves them from the mental and physical challenges of anxiety.

This workshops gently introduce the student to ways they can control their anxiety using these areas:

  • Meditation – Learning different types of meditation – and find the one best suited for the student – to help calm the mind, get restful sleep, and relax the body.
  • Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT/Tapping) – Founded by Gary Craig, EFT is a version of acupuncture, without needles. Daily practice of this technique teaches students to incorporate into their lives.
  • Breath – Using different breathing techniques can help lower the students’ anxiety and also help the entire body to calm down, sleep, and overall wellness.
  • Yoga Poses – Our program focuses on specific Yoga Poses that help relax the sympathetic nervous system. These yoga poses are for beginners and people who are new to yoga.
  • Journaling – Writing to understand what triggers the anxieties and how to deal with them on a holistic manner.
  • Group Discussion – Being in community, sharing experiences and providing support for others with the same struggle.

There will be a one hour lunch on your own.
