About this Course
Here is a reminder of what this course is all about.
This course is inspired by the Minded Institute’s 8 –Week Yoga Therapy for Stress Anxiety and Depression. It has been modified to meet the mental, physical and emotional as well as scheduling needs of moms at all stages of motherhood. This course uses evidence-based yoga and meditation techniques to :
Enhance the functioning of your nervous system to improve stress management and your well-being.
Promote resilience and relaxation.
Enlarge your “toolbox” of stress management techniques.
Research reveals that faster and more long-term healing occurs through the intelligent integration of mind and body techniques. Both awareness and therapeutic yoga are well known to help improve anxiety and depression, this course will help you access these healing properties.
All Sessions will be online and posted weekly. If you can not make it to the session at this time it will be recorded for you to join at a later date. It is strongly encouraged that you schedule in time each week to complete the sessions but if you don't have time you will have through 31 December 2018 to complete the sessions.
Each session will be 90 minutes long and include education on mind-body functioning, a 50 minute yoga practice, breath work and additional mind-body activities.
In addition to the classes this course will include a Facebook Page to foster communication following each session and two discussion webinars (before the first session and after the last) to allow participants to connect. You will also recieve weekly "homework" of a home practice plus ways to practice what you are learning on the mat as well as off the mat in your real life.
No previous yoga experience is necessary.
