Service Description

There are countless reasons to feel anxious. The world is a lot and your feelings are valid. In case you think “anxiety” is an inescapable part of you, that you are no longer safe inside your own body because an episode of panic might attack at any moment…may we offer that you are much more than anxiety. It’s a passing state that can arise to get your attention, to remind you that you are worthy and deserving of feeling comfortable in your own skin, safe enough and authentically confident. Trauma Informed Certified Yoga Therapist Lisa Dumas aims to co-create a safe enough space for four weekly one hour sessions to explore accessible, evidence-based techniques to calm anxiety, panic attacks and challenges with sleep. You will not be expected to share in classes. You can expect to sample simple ways of moving, breathing and relaxing to settle your “nervous” nervous system (it’s ok to feel nervous!) so you can utilize them when you need them. WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE: WEEK ONE- You will be invited to gently move your body in accessible ways to release tension and ease your breathing. Every class will feature at least 20 minutes of progressive relaxation skills and “productive rest”, a restorative experience shown to help with sleep and support mental health in general. WEEK TWO- We’ll build on movement sequences that invite your body to feel more energized yet relaxed at the same time. This week, we’ll explore some very simple, but useful breath techniques to calm the mind and body. WEEK THREE- More movement to build joy and authentic confidence and create a boundary of self-worth. We’ll explore using the imagination to invite stability and ease. Learn to answer the anxious mind with a compassionate inner voice and experience more real, healing rest. WEEK FOUR- We’ll pull it all together to give you a set of practices you’ll have forever. May they support you in continued self-care and self-discovery, leading to treating yourself the way you would a treasured loved one. Expect flowing movement, relaxation-inducing breath, meditation tips for the interested and relaxation.
