Are you ready to decode anxiety and fear?
By understanding the interplay of conditioning, arousal, and the brain, you can leverage positive learning experiences to alleviate an anxious response within your students!
Did you know there are biological contributions that may predispose us to anxiety?
In this FREE seminar with Yoga Medicine® Teacher, Therapeutic Specialist & Applied Psychologist Diane Malaspina, you’ll look through the lens of arousal and brain circuitry to understand how experiences and learning can both heighten and alleviate the anxious response, and transformational ways yoga can help. You’ll learn:
- The core differences between anxiety and fear
- How clinical anxiety is defined, and the psychological and physical symptoms one experiences
- The biological contributions to an anxious response (brain circuits and arousal) plus the environmental contributions (learning, adverse experience)
- Key applications of yoga to alleviate anxiety, plus sensitivity tips for teachers to better navigate triggers within their students
