Inner Alchemy is very excited to present another unique modality and class to support full health and freedom!
Kundalini Yoga with Gangama Reframing depression, anxiety and addictive patterns through attention to stress, fatigue and impulsivity-the yogic way!
Class #1 Stress.
Stress is your friend.
Stress is the result of fear. Whether from past learning, anticipation of the future or a lack of trust in the body; fear can result in chronic stress. Stress is the number one component contributing to most major states of illness. Let’s open a conversation about stress and fear and do something about it! Kundalini yoga practice can teach you how to recognize the silent fear contributing to the stress response in the body. For most of us, this is such a normal state of living that we don’t spot it. Yogic practice changes the structure of the fear response in the brain. Learn how to use your body to alleviate the symptoms of unmanaged stress. Reframe stress as your ally in energizing your dreams.
Class includes clinically validated practices in Kundalini yoga. Kriyas specified for diagnostic criteria related to anxiety, depression, compulsive behaviors will be taught based upon Sacred Therapies-the Kundalini Yoga Meditation Handbook for Mental Health by David Shannahoff-Khalsa. Participants will receive class materials supporting a continuing practice; a clinical study validating each practice, and links for the music. Participants will be tended to with kindness, confidentiality and compassion. Yogi tea will be served.
Julie Beach, or Gangama Bio:
After 25 years in the business world, the Universe decided that my life needed to take a left turn. I hung on with all my might, to no avail. The winds of spiritual emergence uprooted the tree of me and what you see today is the new growth. I am a Kundalini yoga instructor, clinical Heart-Centered hypnotist and working on a doctorate in Transpersonal Psychology at The Wellness Institute. My studies come from the heart and include research on dementia and clinical work in depression, anxiety, suicide, sexual trauma, dissociation, addiction, and progressive mental health treatments. Kundalini yoga has brought me into direct communication with my inner essence and validated my experience of life as a highly-sensitive person.
