Step 1: Assessment and making sense of what has happened- Our workshops will allow space to share (or not), to be with others and to tap into our common humanity. Although our experiences have been varied and the losses have been different , the experience of Covid-19 has been detrimental for each one of us. Covid-19 has had a negative impact on wellness.
Step 2: The why and how – We are going to focus on wellness, with yoga for emotional recovery structured around the main trauma muscle (psoas) and main trauma nerve (Vagus nerve). We will use empirical (science) based evidence to explore why yoga mindfulness enable us to overcome emotional distress (anxiety and depression) in order to allow healthy grieving and recovery.
Step 3: Exercise – The workshop will have a cardio workout adapted for each wonderful and unique individual, so that we can tap into that post exercise feel good factor by stimulating the stress busting endorphins.
Step 4: Sustainability- since our joints are with us for life, we will explore joint protection and develop a sustainable routine that we are able to maintain to ensure perfect (good enough) home practice ; that we want to do and can do.
Step 5: Compassion- yoga without kindness and compassion is simply just another way to keep fit. Learning to love this body, this being becomes the first stop for learning to care for others and for our little beautiful planet.
