Jo Stevenson, Kundalini yoga and meditation teacher
In this current technological age, we are experiencing a speeding up of time and stress is an inevitable part of everyone’s lives. Mental health issues are on the increase and no one is exempt from the challenges of juggling work and home life, of responding to tight deadlines and the pressures of being connected online 24/7.
Stress is simply the bodies adaptation to change and in that way stress is natural and necessary. Stress itself is not unhealthy but staying in a continuous stress response is, and can lead to irritability, exhaustion, burn out and break down.
In this short presentation I will share with you:
– How strengthening your nervous system expands our capacity to deal with stress.
– We will discover how to alter your stress response in matter of minutes with breathwork, mindfulness and meditation
– And we will learn simple techniques to change your mood and mind-state with the powerful technology of Kundalini yoga
