When you feel resilient and calm, everybody around you benefits.

It is natural to feel exhausted, drained and short-tempered! It takes a lot of energy to hold yourself together, to hold your body tight for protection, to hold down emotions, to experience mood swings in all the turbulence.

You may have disturbing thoughts, worry about the future, pain in the body, tension headaches, interrupted sleep or little sleep at all.

Even reading the above words may spark some feelings of stress in your body!


The good news is that there are simple ways to look after yourself, your physical and mental wellbeing.

We know from history, evolution & neuroscience that human beings are adaptable, resilient, and have found creative ways to survive, transform and thrive under stress.

You already have coping resources hard-wired into your brain.

The ancient wisdom of yoga provides tried and tested tools to cope with fear and suffering that have been used for centuries

Find an anchor in all the turbulence, anxiety and stress.
Learn how to listen and celebrate the miracle of your body
