Stress is a big issue. We know that not just since Covid; prior to the last year, stress has already been identified as the cause for about 90 % of illnesses. This is massive. Interestingly this totals up to what Ayurveda defines that 60% of all illnesses are seen Vata related and 30 % are Pitta related.
Stress has many faces, we know about them: high blood pressure, headaches, backaches, inflammation, ulcers, heart diseases, anxiety, menstrual issues, fertility issues, depression and so many more.
Understanding and fighting stress can be done in lots of different ways. Yoga and Ayurveda have some wonderfully effective, long lasting tools to help. That is why I would like to offer this exciting workshop.
If you have ever attended a yoga session, you are familiar with the way you feel at the end of it, this is our aim is. A feeling of being balanced, calm, of being able to deal with what comes along, being able to think clearly.
There are different techniques during a yoga session which are helping you to reach that state, such as releasing tensions through movements, focusing on the breath, holding postures to build up strength and resilience, all breathwork helps to reduce stress and relaxation of course.
All these elements are needed. We cannot just lie down and relax, our mind needs to join in as well, that is the secret.
Ayurveda looks at stress specific to the Doshas. Vata related stress expresses itself in anxiety, worries and overwhelm. Whereas Pitta related stress comes in form of irritability and a sense of being fed up.
Both Doshas have specific ways to help reducing stress.
During this workshop you can expect:
- A short introduction into Ayurveda.
- Gaining an understanding of what stress is, good as well as bad stress.
- What is Dosha specific stress.
- Tools for helping with stress.
- Learning about the role of the mind in relation to stress.
- A stress reducing Yoga practice.
