Are you feeling anxious and/or depressed as we continue to face multiple national and world-wide crises in 2021? You are not alone! This class is designed to support you in learning yoga and meditation practices as well as the tools of modern neuroscience to calm anxiety, enhance mood and transform mental patterns that lead to suffering.
This 4-session weekly class, Feb. 9-Mar. 2, 6-7:30 p.m., combines practices from the LifeForceŽ Yoga for Depression and Anxiety program with the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) program. Research studies have demonstrated that each program is effective at reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety. Please note that, although this approach is effective, this class is not a substitute for psychotherapy.
Join us to learn practices to calm anxiety, energize low mood, soothe social isolation, work skillfully with negative thinking and create new, resilient patteerns of body and mind.
