This course is about turning anxiety and high levels of stress into sources of strength, creativity, and power, rather than issues or obstacles. This course covers breathing techniques and guided imagery meditations for deep relaxation and improved focus skills. Using video, this short course is structured in a simple, straightforward, friendly manner. Take this course if you struggle with high levels of stress, anxiety, post traumatic stress, grief, anger, or low self esteem and if you want to build up resiliency to stress and anxiety. These practices are simple and modified for all levels, which means no previous breath work, or guided relaxation experience is necessary.
Welcome aboard! I am so glad you are here and ready to start learning and implementing simple and effective practices which will help you conquer your anxiety and will also help you move through high levels of stress. Topics covered:
Thank you for enrolling-now start taking advantage of the practices and benefiting from your decision to take great care of yourself!
Natural Belly breathing sounds simple, but the reality is that for many people, during times of stress and anxiety, breathing becomes shallow and chest oriented. Rapid, shallow chest breathing signals to the body that there is danger and the cycle of anxiety is perpetuated. This style of breathing is great to help you feel grounded, safe, and in control of the way you react and respond to different situations.
You are ready to start adding more breaths to your sessions-that's amazing! With a longer, more focused practice, you will benefit to a higher degree when it comes to improving focus, and transitioning though experiences and sensations.
Anxiety and stress are not the enemies! The way in which we respond to our bodies messages will have a profound effect on our overall sense of wellbeing. This breath is effective when used as a preventative measure, and also when used during moments of decision making, times of high levels of stress, and even during anxious moments.
Laser focus, profound presence, and the ability to increase your levels of discernment are all reasons to build your practice up to 5 minutes of Uprising Breath. It may sound like a lot-but time will move fluidly and swiftly, all while slowing your anxiety motor down to a manageable speed. Get ready and prepare yourself by getting comfortable,and minimize distractions when possible.
Guided imagery helps professional athletes and successful business leaders-why not use it to become a conquerer of stress and anxiety? It's a good idea to minimize distractions, and grab a blanket to keep warm. Use this practice when you have around 10-15 minutes to set aside for relaxing.
Guided Imagery practice is an effective way to learn more about the root cause of our anxiety. Bonus Tip: After this session, take five minutes to write about a difficult time in your life when you showed strength. If you want, you can save the writing, or simply shred it for the recycling bin. The somatic experience of writing actually serves to move emotion from your heart, through your body, and into the paper, allowing you to let it go and move on to the next layer of vibrancy.
Thank you for taking action and not only changing your viewpoint on stress and anxiety, but actually taking action to build your body and mind's ability to better manage stress and anxiety. Below you will find bonus recordings of guided imagery and breath work recordings-I hope you use them, enjoy them, and that they serve to help you continue to conquer your anxiety. You've got this! Please leave a positive review and let me know what other classes I can make for you!
