The Art of Breathing

- 01/05/2012
The degree to which stress influences our lives is generally underestimated: Often the mind clings on to anger, guilt, or regret about the past, or is plagued by anxiety and worry about the future. This oscillation of the mind causes tension and stress both for ourselves and for the people around us. Breath is the link between the body and the mind and is key in handling our mind and negative emotions. In order to raise awareness, we offer a series of free taster workshops for groups in Guernsey. We facilitate the workshop at your venue and it can run for between half hour to ninety minutes according to your availability. The Health and Happiness Workshop consists of a full yoga session with relaxation, breathing techniques, guided meditation and information and tips about simple ways of better handling stress and living with more health and happiness. We can also run shorter workshops which use these same elements to give participants a taste of the benefits. Previous participants have reported more energy, reduced stress, enhanced health, improved mental clarity and focus, improved sense of wellbeing and increased creativity. If you enjoyed the taster session, we offer Art of Breathing courses - see details attached Please click here for more information.
