Stress Management Workshop - an Ayurvedic approach
2h

Building tools for stress management lays the foundation for positive behavioral change and lifestyle modifications.

There will be three key learning objectives:

  • To understand how stress works: This will be done through a short power point presentation emphasizing our primary physiology in response to any perceived threat.

  • To develop an awareness of the ways in which we react to stress from an Ayurvedic perspective: According to Ayurveda, there are three primary constitutions/blueprints that reflects who we are and how we react to stress. A brief description of each constitution will be given as well as their respective reactions to stress. This will enable the participant to develop a deeper awareness of how they react to stress.

  • To develop stress management skills and healthy lifestyle practices: Stress management techniques will be practiced and healthy lifestyle tips will be discussed.

    Exercises include:

    • Deep breathing for the immediate relief of stress
    • The practice of a breathing technique to induce sleep
    • Humming for the relief of anxiety
    • Self-massage to alleviate stress and raise energy levels
    • Postures for the relief of tension in the neck, shoulders and back

At the end of this workshop, your staff can expect to adopt tools and strategies that improve their ability to manage stress in the workplace and at home.
