About the Workshop 

Whether it comes from the hectic pace of modern-day living or whether it arises from a specific trigger (e.g. the loss of a loved one, financial worries, situational anxiety), stress has become an inevitable part of life.

 

Stress can be debilitating. Long periods of stress have been shown to cause chemical changes in your brain, which have a consequential negative impact on various aspects of your health, such as the nervous system, hormones, immunity, digestive functions, quality of sleep, energy levels, as well as your mental and emotional well-being. While you may identify which situations or issues cause you stress, this is not the same as your reaction to it. Given that stress is unavoidable, it is important to manage it instead of being overwhelmed by these stressors each time they present themselves.

 

In this three-part workshop, we will identify different types of tensions and underlying stressors and understand how our yoga practice can, in addition to being a useful tool for stress management, be a pathway to holistic wellness of the body, mind and spirit.

 

Key Focus:

  1. Deepen/refine your yoga practice, extending it beyond just the practice of physical poses
  2. Introduction to the link between meditation, breathwork (pranayama) and mental stress relief
  3. Introduction to emerging heart-focused areas of yoga practice such as visualisation, self-enquiry and journalling
  4. Identify stressors and provide practical tools to release unnecessary tension and/or resolve existing traumas
  5. Develop a framework to deal with future stressors/traumas

 

Schedule & Description

Session 1: The Body

12 October (Saturday)

9.00 am to 12.00 pm

 

In this session, we will direct our focus on the stress and tension we hold in our physical body. Very often, due to poor postural habits or a sedentary lifestyle, we may have become accustomed to holding tightness and tension in our muscles and the fascia (i.e. the connective tissue/webbing interweaving our joints, organs and muscles) that we lose the connection to our physical body and treat tightness in our physical body as "normal". Few people know that tightness in the physical body has a tendency to also manifest as energetic tension in the body and mind, which increases the feeling of stress without us being conscious of it. We may forget that our physical practice holds the key to unlocking healing, relief and comfort for the body and soul. 

 

This session will feature an extended breath-centred, feel-good asana practice for the entire body (particularly the shoulders, neck, hips, hamstrings and lower back) to get us out of our mind and into our body, helping us to regain a sense of ease, balance and connection in our body, breath and mind.

 

Session 2: The Mind

12 October (Saturday)

1.30 pm to 4.30 pm

 

In this session, we attempt to untangle our mental knots by exploring the connection between our breath and our mind.  Have you ever compulsively worried about something? You know on an intellectual level that worrying doesn't help, but you do it nonetheless. Most of us are aware of the benefits that slow, guided breathing exercises (pranayama) have on the heart rate, but few of us know that the benefits also extend to our mental framework.  

 

This session gives us a rare opportunity to practise a variety of breath direction exercises/breathwork, as well as visualisation exercises in a systematic, extended manner with the goal of releasing stress from mental attachments. Slowing down our breath and our heart rate, we will use the increased awareness of our breath patterns as a guide to become more aware of our thought patterns (habitual or otherwise) and to regulate and/or change them, so that they will not take over our perception of reality or influence our emotions negatively. We seek to get a first-hand experience of pratyahara (the conscious withdrawal of the external senses) and learn ways to generate this experience for ourselves through a regular practice.

 

Session 3: The Heart

13 October (Sunday)

9.00 am to 12.00 pm

 

Sometimes negative emotions are buried so deep in our hearts that they change (or have changed) the way we behave in social settings or in relationships, and we feel there is no longer any room for change. In addition, having to put up a front denies us the chance to objectively examine why we feel the way we do. This state of affairs is stressful on an energetic level, regardless of how much our intellectual mind denies it.  

 

In this final session, we work with the power of our heart to excavate all those negative emotions we may have been suppressing, repressing or denying. Using the emerging tools of self-enquiry, journalling and meditation, we will have a safe space to surrender to the power of devotion, dive into our heart space, and honestly work to release what no longer serves us. We can devote our energies towards healing ourselves and opening our hearts, giving and receiving love from everyone.
