Hey everyone, Since I started my newsletter, The Exhale, a year ago, I’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to bring together my yoga and writing projects here on The Basic Goods. I’m excited and really proud to share that, A Course in Calm, is exactly that. Don’t let my title as a yoga teacher fool you, I’m also a person who deals with anxiety and a distracted mind like many people do. So I created this totally free course to share what I have learned and teach in studios and schools that help others (and myself!) feel more settled and calm.
I don’t believe that we need to accept this stressed and over-reactive state as the norm. Peaceful bodies and calm minds are our baseline and I know that we are all capable of living from that place. Please feel free to send me a message or sign up a friend/loved one if you like! Read on to find out more about A Course and Calm.
Irritable, distracted, anxious and burned out. Trust me, I’ve been there too. If you’ve ever struggled with chronic anxiety and panic attacks you’ve probably experienced these all of these feelings before. Living in this state is exhausting and frustrating to say the least and on a psychosomatic level, your body and brain are never given the chance to catch up and simply slow down.
My 6+ years as a yoga teacher have allowed me to be steeped in the practice of thoughtful movement, focused breathwork and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) that have helped me and students of all ages effectively manage the disruptive and damaging effects of chronic anxiety. The practice, teaching and firsthand experience of these methods led me to create, A Course in Calm.
This is a totally FREE, four week-long mini course that will give you small and impactful tools that you can use throughout your daily life to help you feel more calm and settled overall. In this course you will receive four emails to help you,
- Manage and control anxiety
- Create a practice of mindfulness
- Learn to use breathwork and yoga poses as tools for self-care
- Develop emotional resiliency
Once it’s live, you can sign up at any time to begin receiving the emails, so I mean it when I say don’t stress out. And that’s it! All you need to do is enter your email and of course, share with a family or friend who needs this, too. There’s power in numbers and having a support system to cheer one another on is truly invaluable.
