Everyone suffers from mild anxiety from time to time, but chronic anxiety not only can disrupt your life, but it can take a toll on the body creating an underlying state of tension and emotional fatigue. Anxiety can affect the breath, which may be constricted,  the body through chronic muscle tension and the mind with thoughts that may spin out of control.    

This workshop will introduce gentle movement to relieve tension, plus  breath awareness and restorative poses to promote emotional balance. No experience is necessary but the ability to get down onto the floor is necessary.
