The Effects of Stress on the Body

8th June 11:00 to 12:00
Part of the Everyday ways to manage stress & boost confidence workshops from Amanda Cangelosi
Effectively YOU: A programme of self study, workshops, and active sessions to support your development. We want you to build your personal confidence and self effectiveness from the inside, outward! So you can share your story with pride, and know your value in the world.

Stress is inevitable but how we relate to it is a choice. The key to being effectively you is understanding how we can change our relationship to stress so that we can achieve our goals and ambitions. Yoga and mindfulness has focused on this challenge for centuries and in this 4 part series we are going to explore practical tools for everyday ways to manage stress and boost our confidence.

This course is for you if you have experienced one or more of the below situations:

  • Feeling overwhelmed before a stressful situation such as an exam, job interview, conflict with our friends or family
  • Doubts whether you are as capable as others and worry about what people think
  • Find it hard to rest, relax, concentrate or your mind races
  • Find that you get headaches, tightness in the body, problems sleeping before or after stressful situations

Session Four:

How to work with the effects of stress on the body

This session will look at yoga and mindfulness tools that help us release the effects stress has on the body. We will practically work with the systems in the body such as tissues, muscles, and joints that store stress.
