A great Yoga class can definitely eliminate stress and make you feel a whole lot better than before you came in. Then over time stress starts to build up again and we do another class and open up that valve of the pressure cooker once again and release some more stress. Yoga class is a wonderful tool to manage stress but if we want to go a little further, we can use Yogic mindfulness to eliminate rather than just manage the stress.

We hear a lot about mindfulness these days but what does it really mean?  Letís look at the definition: The practice of maintaining a nonjudgmental state of heightened or complete awareness of one's thoughts, emotions, or experiences on a moment-to-moment basis.

Let me ask you this?  If you had two people making a very important decision for you, who would you pick out of this choice: 1) A dear but very emotional friend who is heavily invested in the outcome of the situation, or 2) an acquaintance who is not emotionally invested in the situation and can weigh the pros and cons in a very fair and concise manner. Most would pick the acquaintance because they are not making the decision based purely on emotion. Mindfulness training is like that. It helps us to sit back and chose to be the acquaintance instead of the emotional friend because we begin to see situations for what they really are rather than from the emotional charge or attachment. 

Mindfulness can help us to start to see our stressful thoughts in a completely different manner. We will start to see that these thoughts rarely materialize in the physical world the way we imagined. They no longer will be thoughts that we torture ourselves with day in and day out. They will no longer be thoughts that manifest in the body leading to stress related illnesses that harm the physical body and the mind.

The Yogis believe that we can only really truly control one thing in life and that is how we think about what we are experiencing. Mindfulness techniques will help you examine and re-contextualize thoughts that are causing you stress so that you see them in a different light and release the stress that was only really a mental construct in your mind to begin with.  The true job of Yoga philosophy is to release blockages in our minds that are keeping us from being happy. The Yogis say our birth right is pure happiness, but the stress we carry is akin to dark clouds that keeping us from enjoying a beautiful sunny day.

What you will learn in this seminar:

1)    - Mindfulness tools to identify, re-contextualize and release stress in your life.

2)    - Mindfulness tools to help you live more in the moment rather than lamenting about the past or stressing about the future.

3)    - Tools to help you release resentments and judgments that are causing you stress
