BRISBANE YOGA WORKSHOPS

YOGA FOR STRESS, DEPRESSION, ANXIETY AND FATIGUE – PINE RIVERS

DATE: May 12th-13th 2018
TIMES: 10am-4.30pm. Saturday & 9am-3.30pm Sunday
LOCATION: Pine Rivers Yoga1 Pinedale Road, Cashmere QLD 4500

Anxiety, stress and fatigue are epidemic in our society. How can we use yoga to strengthen the system against stress? Often we are told to rest, and given ‘Restoratives’. However, this approach can lead u s deeper into ‘tamas’ the energy of stagnation which maintains disease. The approach of the Krishnamacharya tradition is that we need to go in the opposite direction to that of the disease; we need to make ourselves stronger than/bigger than the stressor (working at the levels of prana, the immune system, the nervous system and the mind).
Therefore, depending on ability, and using modifications to suit the level of the individual student, the morning practice is strong and dynamic with a focus on using posture and breath in specific ways to strengthen the entire system. Then the afternoon/evening practice is given to relax the whole system from the physical and mental stress of that day.
This workshop would be useful for all practitioners and teachers alike to enhance both personal practice and teaching skills. For those who are familiar with Flo’s work, this is great chance to underline some of the most important principles of vinyasa yoga and yoga therapy, as well as introduce a few new tricks and tips!
