The Destressified Response

Learn what stress does to the body and mind and what you can do about it. Based on davidji's book "destressifying,"

In this online course, we learn what stress does to the body and mind and what you can do about it. Through learning meditation and other practices, you can learn to master awareness, your needs, your emotions, your communication and your purpose in life.

The course is loosely based on davidji's book "destressifying." The book is an option to purchase but excerpts are shared in the course. If you choose to purchase the book, there is a lot of valuable information in the book that you may find beneficial, especially if you are new to meditation.

We will break down stress and what it is and isn't and see how it can harm the body, mind and emotions. We counter this with our meditation practice, starting with simple body awareness and 16 second breath practices and continue from there.

Upon completion of course, you are eligible to register for 6 hours of Yoga Alliance Continuing Education.
