Rekindling the Flame : Yoga for Professionals Experiencing Stress or Burnout

On a daily, professional or personal basis, you may be dealing with issues that most people never face. The hidden cost of caring professions and leadership roles can take its toll in compromised physical, mental and emotional health. Consistently high levels of stress can create a toxic inner environment, as well as at work and home. Yet, you can take a pro-active approach in order to reconcile your ways of being into a whole that functions well.

This session of holistic inquiry aims to nourish your inner environment. Learning to steward your body, breath and mind and to provide expression to your true-self as you navigate through life requires curiosity, courage, humour...and time out. Within a non-judgemental space, participants explore their early warning signs of stress and the signs of burnout. I facilitate the identification and sharing of strengths and inner resources among participants and teach a selection of practices to acknowledge and address concerns and ultimately help empower you to move forward.

Where the Mind is without Fear by Rabindrinath Tagore

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake
