 Read more about the impact of stress and how this workshop can help you relieve it!

Every day we’re faced with stimuli, called stressors, which can elicit the body’s ‘fight or flight’ response, setting off a cascade of physiological reactions and resulting in emotions ranging from mild to intense.

The stress response is necessary but chronic or repeated highly stressful events or trauma can be harmful. This is because stress produces a state of tension in the body. Normally the tension disappears when the stress is relieved. Chronic tension however, persists after the provoking stress has been removed as an unconscious bodily attitude, muscular set, and habitual emotional response.. Such chronic muscular tension disturbs physical and emotional health by decreasing an individual’s energy, restricting his motility (the natural spontaneous play and movement of the musculature) and limiting self expression.

When this happens we unconsciously disconnect and cut off from feeling and experiencing what is going on in our bodies and as a result our energy has a tendency to move up to our head where we start to feel constantly activated.  Before too long we are caught up in cycle of feeling activated, inhibiting our breath, contracting our muscles to hold everything in, resulting in even greater tension and feeling even more activated and unease within. And over time this cycle leads to physical symptoms.

All of us try our best to cope with this problem in our own way. For some it is to go out for a drink, participate in stress management activities such as yoga, meditation, gym classes etc. Some of these activities can be helpful in reconnecting us with our bodies and using our breath to help us centre and ground. However it is only when we are able to become aware of our habitual patterns, and tap into our accumulated emotions through experiential processes that help us release them that long-lasting results are possible.

The good news is that LONG-LASTING RESULTS that return YOU to a state of full aliveness and emotional well-being are not only possible they are GUARANTEED!

In this workshop YOU will experience the following healing modalities:

  • Active meditation (To create a gentle charge and discharge in our nervous system)
  • Guided meditations (For relaxation and integration)
  • Breathwork session (To complete in-completed survival energies )
  • Bioenergetics session (Body therapy for Vibrant Health)
  • Tension releasing exercises
  • Gentle movement (Somatic work to unwind the stored tension and trauma in joints)
  • Awareness intensive “WHO IS IN?“
  • EFT: Emotional freedom technique.
  • Hypnotic trance (To activate the body’s natural healing process)

We all deserve to be taken care of, receive loving support and to take a little time to nourish ourselves in every possible way to  regain our power back to achieve our goals in life, feeling healthy, alive, joyous and be creative in our lives again.

IT IS NEVER LATE TO RE-CONNECT WITH YOUR AUTHENTIC SELF !
