Mediation for stress and anxiety

Understanding anxiety is the first step in managing it. When we have a better sense of triggering situations, we are able to have a better grasp of managing it. Through mediation, we can familiarize ourselves with anxiety inducing thoughts, and when we can find them and see them, we can let them go. This allows us to change our relationship with anxiety.
In this workshop, you will learn how to counter the stress response, which leads to decrease in blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen consumption… and overall peace of mind! Meditation and breathing techniques learned in this workshop will create the relaxation response where you will start to see real changes and provide techniques the price a safe place that can be accessed whenever anxiety or stress starts to creep in.
