Out of Chaos into Calm De-Stress w/ Kundalini Yoga

Out of the Chaos into Calm De-Stress w/ Kundalini Yoga

w/ Anna Marsh

Sunday December 17th 12:30-3:30pm

We live in a stressful world, and more often than not, we don’t know how to manage it. Work, family, and regular daily commitments cause plenty of stress on their own, and the stress is exacerbated by perceived crisis situations that emerge from time to time. A common mantra these days is “I’m totally stressed out!” Thankfully, Kundalini Yoga offers plenty of tools for managing stress. In fact, stress management is a wonderful side effect of a consistent Kundalini Yoga practice!

This ancient technology employs movement, breath work, meditation and mantra which affect various systems of the brain and body. The physical effects of the exercises pressurize the glandular system, creating a physiological response that counters the effects of stress. The parasympathetic nervous system is strengthened, counteracting the “fight or flight response that is triggered by stress.

Workshop will include:

  • Welcome and opening chant
  • Introductions and information on Basic Kundalini Yoga followed by Pranayama & Meditation
  • Stress Overview/ Life Stress Inventory & How Kundalini Yoga works to relieve stress “Tool Kit”
  • 90 Min Practice: Pranayam, Kriya, Deep Relaxation, Meditation
  • Discussion, sharing, final meditation and closing

 

Anna Marsh will forever be grateful for the running injury that promptred her to try yoga. Not only was it helpful in her physical recovery, it also gave her the spiritual path she had been seeking. In 2012 she received her certification in Hatha yoga at the Salt Spring Centre of Yoga. She began teaching at Sun and Sage Yoga in Quesnel, BC. Always on a quest, she attended some specialized yoga courses, such as Yin Yoga, Yoga for Cancer and Trauma Sensitive Yoga training. She discovered Kundalini yoga via Beyond Addiction: A Yogic Path to Recovery, a 16 week Kundalini based program. Thus began her love of this practice. Anna became certified as a Kundalini Yoga teacher in 2015. She spends most of her time in Vancouver, where she teaches and works at Yoga West. She also is involved in the Beyond Addiction program, sharing the techniques which have enhanced her life. Along with being a yoga instructor, Anna is a licensed hairstylist. She regularly returns to the Cariboo serving her longtime hair clients and guest teaching Hatha, Vinyassa, Yin and Kundalini yoga.
