Advanced Therapy (10 uur training): Habits of self-care for mental health with Svastha Yoga Therapy
In our fast-paced lives, where routines and long hours are numbing our brains and bodies and reduce our leisure time, our stress response gets overused. Stress tends to lead to more stress and burn-out. Although traditionally the system of yoga was not developed as a mode by which to improve mental health issues, like stress, trauma, depression, anxiety... its beautiful design offers an advanced approach to cultivate each and every aspect of mental life and direct it into a state of balance.
Anneke believes that well-being is more than just absence of disease, but an all-encompassing state of physical, mental and emotional wellness. In this workshop, she will take a look at the mental dis-balance from a yogic perspective (yoga sutra/ Krishnamacharya). We will discuss and practice the art of awareness and some yogic tools that are easy to implement in daily life to support self-care routines. This will help you to find rhythms and rituals that fit your lives so that you are able to bring changes to some patterns in a way that is sustainable and reduces stress for a healthier living. A lovely day of yogic self-care for anyone and a great way to learn about this work for yoga teachers, to find out if the journey into yoga therapy is for you. This workshop includes the first chapter of Anneke's new online training. To start the journey now, follow @Annekesips and #beyourowntherapist on Instagram.
