Yoga Therapy for Stress Transformation Program
Our world needs yoga now more than ever.
Although I am not a “news” junkie, I still am in touch with our current state of events. We are all faced with stress about our earth, other countries, gun control, the rising health crisis; along with our own daily efforts to deal with the stress of our jobs, family needs and personal issues. So, you may ask, “Why Yoga?” and “What can yoga do to help these seemingly insurmountable stressors?”
Yoga is so much more than a “hot yoga” class or even the ability to be flexible. Yoga is chocked full of many tools or “practices”. The tools of Yoga are well researched and effective in giving the practitioner mental balance, optimum physical health and a pathway to find your own spiritual connection.
The acronym I love is G.R.A.C.E; growth, resilience, action, courage and ease of being. Each of us needs to fully live in and with GRACE if we are going to have the wherewithal to be the people we need to be to support, understand and make the changes that our future needs right now.
I believe this in my Heart of Hearts and because of that I want to offer scholarships to people who believe Yoga can help them create the future they see themselves living.
