Description

*** COURSE FULLY UPDATED FOR JANUARY 2017 ***

In this course you will learn how you can reduce stress and anxiety with ease.

Let me ask you something:

  • Have you recently snapped at someone over something small, like not doing the dishes?
  • Do you often feel tired, nervous or even anxious?
  • Or do you worry a lot and have trouble falling asleep?

If you answer one or more of these questions with yes, then it is likely that you have been under too much stress for too long. Also, chances are that you are not taking adequate measures to reduce this stress.

Then this is the course for you!

This course is for anyone who wants to get rid of their stress symptoms once and for all, quick and easy.

What will we cover in this course? You will learn:

  • the purpose of stress.
  • the nuts and bolts of the stress response.
  • how doing yoga reliefs stress, a fact which is backed up by numerous scientific studies.
  • And the heart of this course: ten simple yoga exercises that you can do today to reduce the stress symptoms in your life big time!

The exercises you will learn in this course are easy. You do not need to be flexible and you do not need to have any prior yoga experience: this course is suitable for all levels!

The focus is on learning how to relax. People that experience a lot of stress are often not able to fully relax their body anymore. Even when they think they are relaxing, they still hold on to tension.

The purpose of the exercises in this course is to restore the connection between your body and your mind. If you practice these exercises on a regular basis, I promise you that you will start feeling the beneficial effects immediately!

So don’t wait any longer and join me now in this course. Scroll up and click on the Take This Course button on the right. Let’s get started. I will see you inside!

What Is Stress?
7 Lectures 21:59

When you are experiencing chronic stress, it may sometimes seem as if you are the only stressed out person in a world full of healthy, happy people. This is a misconception: you are far from being alone. Stress is actually one of the biggest health problems of our current society.

Stressed Out? You Are Not Alone!
02:29

We start with a story, in which you will imagine yourself as hunter, roaming the jungle for food.

The Stress Response: Fight or Flight vs Rest & Digest
03:56

The stress response is wonderful in life threatening situations. However, if you turn on the stress response for too long, for purely psychological reasons, you set yourself up for getting sick.

Before you start doing any of the ten yoga exercises in this course, it is important that you first change your perception of stress. Why? Because, according to scientific studies, your perception of stress influences how you experience stress. Changing your perception is the first step in reducing stress symptoms!

Yoga Reduces Stress
6 Lectures 17:02
Introduction
00:27

Doesn’t any type of exercise reduce stress? Why not just play a game of basketball instead, or lift weights in the gym? In this lecture we will go into how yoga is different than regular exercise.

What's The Big Deal: Isn't Yoga Just Another Form Of Exercise?
01:55

To really understand how yoga can help you reduce stress, it is good to know a bit about its spiritual origins. Don’t worry: spiritual aspiration is not required to benefit from the yoga exercises in this course. However, to understand how yoga techniques are different from regular exercises, it can really help to know why these techniques were created in the first place.

The Origin Of Yoga
02:53

We discuss how science is more and more confirming what the age old tradition has always said: yoga has great healing and restorative effects.

How Does Yoga Reduce Stress?
02:58


It may sometimes seem that yoga is all about being flexible. This is a misconception. Yoga’s primary concern is to create awareness, not fitness (although this will be a side effect). If you are not flexible, do not get discouraged. Accept the limitations of your body and leave your ego at the door. What matters is your state of mind.

Serial Entrepreneur, Coach/Instructor

I am Peter Cook, an entrepeneur and instructor who travels the world. I am passionate about helping people grow and becoming the best version of themselves they can possibly be.

This is a process I have gone through myself. After having practiced law for almost eight years at a big law firm, I decided to quit in order to pursue a more meaningful life. This has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. After doing a lot of soul searching, I figured out what matters the most to me: helping others grow. I aligned my life with that purpose. I am really excited to share my knowledge and expertise with you, in order to help you to become the best possible you!

I love learning and building my expertise. For example, I have over nine hundred hours in advanced yoga teacher training and yoga therapy training. 

I am particularly interested in how the mind and body are interconnected. I used to see my body as something that brought my head into meetings, but that couldn’t have been more wrong. To become the best possible version of yourself, a harmonious balance between mind and body is key. This is an essential part of what I teach.


What Other People Have To Say After Working With Me...

"I have been lucky enough to have been in some of Peters workshops. They are always informative, inspiring and full of humour and humility."

Luke Bache, yoga instructor

Reviews For My Courses...

"This is an amazing course that covers a wide range of focus techniques and productivity tools. I had never heard of most of the focus techniques, so I really enjoyed that section. The instructor covers it all really well, in sufficient depth and with a light touch. Loved the pop culture references!"

Wim Vinken, student in Develop Super Focus and Become Highly Productive in No Time!

***

"I've been practicing the exercises of the course and I'm learning to perform the poses. I felt a remarkable change and that only took a week to practice them. I really liked this course, it is something I was looking for. Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge."

Edgar Cesar Martinez, student in Stress and Anxiety Free Now With Yoga: Quick and Easy.

***

"I thoroughly enjoyed this course. It is different in that it is giving you physical exercises to do to train the mind to concentration. I have done a few of them, with some variation, and they were helpful. Peter is a very good instructor. He is knowledgeable and very capable to interest students and to encourage them that they really can do this. Very highly recommended. Strong emphasis on yoga, but not in the way you expect. This is an intentional breath of fresh air. Well done."

Theresa Garces Johnson, student in Develop Super Focus and Become Highly Productive in No Time!
