Sharyn Hahn has been offering yoga to diverse groups of students since 2015. She completed her first 200-hour teacher training in Deep Yoga in 2014, followed by a 200-hour certification in the Breathe For Change program. Her studies during the past sixteen months as a student in the Kripalu School of Integrative Yoga Therapy included trauma-informed approaches, yoga for depression, anxiety, stress management, and cancer supportive modalities. She has personally experienced how yoga can have a positive impact on our lives both mentally and physically. Yoga has facilitated her own approach to stress reduction in a very powerful way. It has taught her to listen to her body and respond with proactive steps that have become a part of her daily practice. Her credentials include the creation of several Mindfulness programs, workshop presentations, retreat design and facilitation, and yoga sessions taught both in person and on Zoom. She recently completed her RYT-500 hour in advanced Therapeutic Yoga.
Students will learn about the physiology of stress and understand how specific yogic techniques can help to manage and release it. Body awareness and sensations will be explored using personal experiential and interactive exercises. The ways in which breathwork reduces stress and down-regulates the nervous system will be introduced in order to experience first-hand how it can calm the mind, body, and spirit. We will delve into the connection of the emotions and stress and uncover how awareness can cultivate balance and a sense of well-being. In addition to a yoga asana practice that integrates these practices, we will participate in some discussion and journaling. Includes Yoga: All Levels
This is an in-person program.
