For all levels; no yoga experience required.
Anxiety, insomnia, PTSD, and chronic stress exist not only in the mind, but also in the brain and body. The nervous system is the gateway to changing these emotional patterns: when it’s in a constant state of overdrive, change is difficult at best.
This workshop explores
- The neural principles that underlie progressive change and how you can make them work for you
- Three ways to balance your nervous system and shift out of anxiety
- How your enteric nervous system (your “belly” brain) and immune system can be game-changers on the path to emotional balance
- Powerful methods to revitalize your mind-body network and reverse the effects of chronic stress
- How to create a therapeutic practice that nourishes your nervous system and promotes resilience
- Ways to identify and use your emotional “dimmer switch”
- Methods to access your body’s wisdom.
Learn to integrate breathing exercises, postural adjustments, mindful yoga poses, and restorative postures into a therapeutically sustainable practice. Bo Forbes teaches ways to quiet the mind, energize the body, regulate emotions, cultivate fearlessness, and catalyze your extraordinary inner potential.
