Half-Day Urban Yoga Retreat | Managing Stress & Anxiety
with Ellie Grace in South London
Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our
response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. Victor Frankl.
Join Ellie Grace for a nourishing half-day retreat on managing stress and anxiety. Using breathwork, restorative yoga poses, intention (sankalpa) and guided meditation techniques, Ellie will teach us how to dramatically improve the way we face adversity and handle challenge.
Understanding stress and anxiety are key to working with them to limit their potential for poor
health and poor decision-making. To open the workshop we will learn what triggers experiences of stress and anxiety in the first place, how to notice the warning signs and understand them as
useful messages. We will then look at how emotions manifest in both the mind and body,
leading us to feel depleted, overwhelmed and out of control when left unchecked.
Then we will move into a gentle practice and share tools for healthy stress reduction including essential
breathing techniques, approaches to mindfulness, restorative poses, meditations and journalling
exercises with the aim of building daily practices that support us against the effects of stress
and anxiety before they build up.
Once you've reached an understanding of how your thoughts, emotions and nervous system are
affected by stressors and anxious thoughts, you're on a direct path to experiencing ease and
peace with the use of these life-supporting tools.
Come and connect to your innate stillness and learn how to find your way back to peace again and again and again.
