Coping with Stress through Yoga Description:
Heart Disease, Asthma and Diabetes are just a few examples of diseases that are shown to be induced by stress and can be healed by our own hand. When we step on our yoga mats are we setting intentions that cover the full spectrum of what yoga has to offer? Are we habitually concerning ourselves with physical benefits only? Join Olivia to explore the untapped potential of change that yoga can provide on a neurological level including putting an end to the adverse effects of stress and even acute trauma.
This approach to yoga is now being used in VA hospitals, active military settings and first responder academies and departments to alleviate Post Traumatic Stress and Compassion Fatigue.
Cost = $15 (discounts available for veterans and first responders)!
