Managing Anxiety and Depression with Yoga
With Fred Hoffman
Sunday, Dec 15th
"Would you like to experience and implement tools that can assist your body, mind and spirit in managing anxiety, depression and other stressors? If you answered yes, then we’d love for you to join us at our “Managing Anxiety and Depression with Yoga” workshop! Anxiety and depression are emotional upsets in our bodies and play a part in our life adventure. Our experiences throughout this adventure are connected to our bodies both emotionally and physically causing imbalances. These imbalances are individual to us and our bodies react differently due to our unique anatomy. We all hold stress and tension differently in our unique bodies making a personal, self-empowering method of healing significant. Yoga, a holistic approach that focuses on the mind and body as a way to release stress and tension, has shown great promise as a treatment for these imbalances that truly works for each of us. Join E-RYT200 Fred Hoffmann as he discusses managing anxiety and depression through yoga, reviews current research articles and leads a class designed specifically for the release of stress and tension navigating the imbalances that anxiety and depression cause."
Groove and Flow
Sundays Dec 1st and 8th
“Groove and Flow” is open to all levels of yogis. Expect to “groove to the beat,” with music as our guide, while flowing through postures not unlike those in a traditional Vinyasa style class. In short: come build some heat, move to the beat, let’s groove and flow.
Caitlyn Schrader (CYT-200) is a professional dance artist originally hailing from Upstate New York. She has since brought her dance moves elsewhere including France, Boston, MA, and Australia. Caitlyn was a yogi long before relocating to Greensboro in August to start her MFA in Dance at UNCG. She wears several hats off the yoga mat: performer, educator, choreographer, funky sock collector, French language nerd, movie buff, and coffee enthusiast, borderline coffee snob. She is happy to add “yoga teacher” to this long list! Her classes are deeply influenced by her years of dance training, emphasizing anatomical awareness, movement efficiency, and mindfulness.
