Stress & Anxiety Workshops

A workshop for children and adults to learn yoga techniques that release stress and ease anxiety

In this 1-hour workshop you will learn the key yoga poses, breathing practices and relaxation techniques to tackle stress and anxiety through calming the body and mind. Children as young as 3 years old are welcome to attend the family workshops.

Not only adults suffer from stress and anxiety. Young children through to teenagers are being diagnosed with significant stress and anxiety that affects their wellbeing. Learning yoga can give you the tools to take control of your mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.

The medical profession is now recommending yoga and many health care funds cover yoga classes (see the list here)
