Overview / introduction to the course

Is lockdown taking a toll on you? Are you feeling overwhelmed, stressed, anxious, depressed or exhausted? Do you find difficult to focus, relax or even sleep? Are your emotions like a rollercoaster lately? This course will help you navigate the current uncertain times and discover there are actually easy, effective and pleasant ways of managing these emotional states.

Interactive live online classes requiring a quiet space for a safe and effective practice.

What students can expect to learn 

By the end of the course students will have learnt a number of breathing and relaxation techniques to release tension from their body and mind, help calm their nervous system and manage better their stress and emotions. Practiced before bed, these techniques may help reduce insomnia and contribute to a deep restorative sleep.

Please wear comfortable clothes that facilitate breathing. Laying down on a bed or yoga mat is preferable, but you can also or practice on a chair. Make sure to have a light sofa blanket or some cover handy in order to stay warm during the relaxation.  

Health and safety guidelines

Look for a quiet space where you are calm and comfortable. Interruptions during a deep relaxation may be very unsettling. Please try to avoid them, as well as having pets around.
