Just about any system of yoga can help reduce stress levels, and this is undoubtedly a major reason for the current surge in yoga’s popularity: Sky-high stress is endemic in our society. Not only can stress make life less enjoyable and contribute to such bothersome symptoms as headaches, insomnia, and back pain, but it’s linked to many of society’s killers, including osteoporosis and heart attacks. Even conditions that aren’t caused by stress can prove much more bothersome during stressful times.
High levels of stress are often correlated with what Ayurvedic doctors call vata derangement, when the “air element,” associated with movement and instability, becomes increased. When vata levels are high, the affected person usually has a rajasic(imbalanced) state of mind, flitting from one thought to the next without being able to focus. Typical symptoms of a vata imbalance include impatience, anxiety, insomnia, and constipation, all of which are commonly linked to stress.
If you are suffering from high levels of stress, or would just like to relax deeply for two hours, then hypnosis, combined with suggestion therapy and yoga could enable you to reduce your worry or anxiety and to feel more in control.
After this class you may experience a greater sense of self, greater self-confidence, and greater self-esteem.
An added bonus is that HypnoYoga is wonderfully relaxing and reduces stress levels. :)
We want everyone to be comfortable so please dress comfortably and warmly. We have a very limited amount of yoga props and mats so please bring your own may if you have one. If you would like to bring a pillow (or two) and a blanket also feel free. We will be laying on the floor for an hour for hypnosis so go ahead and bring what you feel you need to be comfortable. :)
