About the event

Yoga for Serenity.

This yoga class is designed to reduce anxiety & worry, build confidence and induce a feeling of serenity. Empower yourself to sooth your worries and restore serenity using yoga, breathwork, meditation, acupressure & relaxation. As we journey through life women can experience emotional fluctuations and suffer from anxiety, worry and loss of self confidence.  This yoga class is designed to alleviate these changes.

Yoga helps with anxiety through a combination of physical, mental, and emotional benefits. Here are some key ways yoga can alleviate anxiety:  

- Yoga helps to regulate the Nervous System: • Activation of the Parasympathetic Nervous System: Yoga, especially through deep breathing exercises (pranayama), activates the parasympathetic nervous system, promoting relaxation and reducing the body’s stress response.  

- Mindfulness and Present-Moment Awareness: • Focus on the Present moment: Yoga encourages mindfulness and being present in the moment. This can help break the cycle of anxious thoughts and reduce the mental clutter that often accompanies anxiety.

- Meditation Practices: • Meditation and mindfulness practices in yoga help calm the mind, reducing anxiety and promoting a sense of inner peace.

- Physical Relaxation: • Muscle Tension Relief: Many yoga poses help release physical tension in the body. Tension in the body can contribute to feelings of anxiety, so relieving this tension can reduce overall anxiety levels. • Improved Circulation: Yoga improves blood circulation, which can help reduce the physical symptoms of anxiety such as headaches, rapid heart rate, and muscle tightness.

- Breathing Techniques (Pranayama): • Deep Breathing: Techniques like diaphragmatic breathing and alternate nostril breathing help increase oxygen intake and promote relaxation. • Breath Contol: Regulating breath through pranayama can help calm the nervous system and reduce anxiety.

- Increased Self-Awareness and Emotional Regulation;  • Mind-Body Connection: Yoga fosters a stronger mind-body connection, helping individuals become more aware of their physical and emotional states. • Emotional Balance: Through regular practice, yoga can help improve emotional regulation and resilience, reducing the impact of stress and anxiety.

- Hormonal Balance: • Reduction of Stress Hormones: Yoga can lower levels of cortisol, the body’s primary stress hormone, leading to reduced anxiety and stress.  - Improved Sleep: • Better Sleep Quality: Yoga can improve sleep quality and duration, which is crucial for managing anxiety. Restorative poses and evening practices can promote better sleep.

- Community and Support: • Social Connection: Practicing yoga in a group setting can provide a sense of community and support, which is beneficial for those experiencing anxiety.  - Enhanced Cognitive Function: • Clarity and Focus: Yoga practices that incorporate meditation and mindfulness can improve cognitive function, helping to clear the mind and enhance focus.

- Research Studies: • Numerous studies have shown that yoga can significantly reduce symptoms of anxiety. For example, a study published in the Journal of Psychiatric Practice found that yoga was effective in reducing anxiety levels in participants.  

- Personalized Approach: • Adaptability: Yoga can be tailored to individual needs and fitness levels, making it accessible for people of all ages and physical conditions.  In summary, yoga offers a holistic approach to managing anxiety, combining physical movement, breath control, and mindfulness to promote overall well-being and stress reduction.
