"EMPOWER YOURSELF THROUGH FOCUSED BREATHING AND MINDFUL MOVEMENT"
Online Course - Simple yet powerful techniques from yoga that will allow you to shift your emotional state and empower your body and your mind.

Everything is ENERGY. Change your energy before your circumstances can change.
The breathing, meditation, and physical practices of yoga are here precisely for that: to allow energy to move more freely from places where it had been stuck for some times, resulting in emotional unrest, mental and/or physical discomfort.

WHY THIS COURSE? FOR WHO?

The times we live in are challenging, to say the least but in the unknown lies the germ of manifesting the new. In the Chinese alphabet, the character depicting the idea of danger is the same as opportunity... This course is for men and women* willing to find within themselves the resources for reducing stress and anxiety, to feel peace of mind, to feel grounded in the face of changing circumstances...What we focus on, what we identify with defines what we experience in thoughts feelings, and physical sensations.
By using awareness of the breath, choosing what we focus on and introducing new movements, new body sensation to our attention, we can learn to feel present and safe and peaceful in the midst of discomfort and uncertainty. This is what this course is about.
The course uses yoga as a way of introducing mindfulness of breath and movement. It is not style specific and no prior experience is required in order to benefit from day 1 from the knowledge and practices shared in this programme.
The purpose of this course is to equip you with some powerful skills that you will be able to apply to any daily life situation requiring that you find a calm, grounded, confident, strong, and peaceful self.
"Where attention goes, Energy flows"... And right now, where we need our attention is on our inner resources, our innate ability to energise and strengthen our body, to balance our emotional state, to promote and support our immune system...
Everything is energy and the breath is our most vital and reliable source of Energy. Becoming more aware of the way we breathe leads to more clarity of mind, more creativity, more peace of mind, it allows us to use our bodies with more awareness, more efficiently, more safely too. A deeper and more conscious breath supports powerfully all body functions and promotes a strong immune system.

*The movements and classes in this course are gentle but like with any exercise, if unsure please ask advice from your doctor before starting.
