Feeling worried when faced with a problem at work or school? Does making a decision, big or small, feel you with unease or dread? Anxiety is a complex and multi-causal condition that may look like fatigue, restlessness, lack of concentration, irritability, excessive fear, etc. For people living with anxiety, daily activities and overall enjoyment of life can be interrupted. Understanding how the nervous system impacts anxiety and learning skills to calm the body can make yoga a natural fit in a treatment strategy.
This six-week series is meant as a practical guide to learning about, understanding, and cultivating skills to care for yourself. Each class will offer a variety of techniques (asana/poses, pranayama/breathing, meditation) and the support to practice with a community of others dealing with anxiety. No yoga experience necessary.
Due to high demand and requests, we are offering another Ease Anxiety series. The March series is recommended for new students and returning yogis. If you participated in Alison's recent Ease Anxiety series you may have been presented with new concepts, ideas or vocabulary, yoga or health-related. As with many things, repetition can be a great way to learn. Although many topics for the upcoming series will be familiar, new discussion and postures will be presented as well.
Alison first arrived on her mat 30 years ago, began teaching in 2014, and remains in awe of the healing power of this practice. She honors both the science and spirit of yoga, leads with curiosity, and endeavors to help students rediscover their personal agency and rhythm. Outside of class, you'll find Alison walking her talk and in the woods - usually with her people and funny pup in tow.
