Activity description

Health questionnaire to be completed 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 roller coaster 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. HOW WILL THE COURSE BE TAUGHT?   Interactive live online classes requiring a quiet space for a safe and effective practice. WHAT CAN STUDENTS 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. ARE ANY RESOURCES REQUIRED A mobile device or computer with camera that allows the tutor to see you and allows you to interact during the class. 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. ARE THERE ANY HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES TO FOLLOW?   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.
