Quieting the Anxious Mind
A Yoga Infused Health Workshop. Do you find yourself overthinking, constantly worrying, engaging in negative self-talk, or losing sleep from racing or repetitive thoughts? We are ALL faced with daily challenges and stress; work, relationships, finances, health issues, difficult life transitions, or just the hustle and bustle of everyday life. These challenges can sometimes send our “monkey minds” into overdrive, where we can easily become overwhelmed by anxious thoughts. Sound familiar? If so, we’d love for you to join us for this event!
During the first portion of “Quieting the Anxious Mind,” we will spend some time talking, sharing, and learning about the physiological responses to stress (what happens in your body), along with the psychological responses to stress (what happens in your brain). Next comes the yoga! Yoga can be an extremely powerful tool for easing symptoms of worry, stress, and anxiety. We will practice a short meditation to focus on our breath, engage in standing postures to ground us, and use restorative poses to quiet our minds and relax our nervous systems.
The last portion of the workshop will be focused on specific strategies to manage the way you respond to your stress triggers. You will leave with practical tools that you can use that very day (and every day after that)! No yoga experience is necessary. Mats, blankets and blocks will be available for your use. Learn the WHY behind your stress, techniques to calm yourself, and the tools to reframe and quiet your active mind.
Workshop Guide: Yoga instructor and licensed professional counselor, Hollie Kolcz, will introduce you to practical techniques, using cognitive behavior therapy, that can help you understand how you respond to your own stress. She will guide you through hands-on exercises to help identify your thinking patterns, subtle ways to change them, and help you find peace and calm, using breath (pranayama), movement (asana), and meditation.
“When we make the time to take care of ourselves from the inside out, we find a sense of clarity, peace and empowerment, allowing us to live our most authentic lives.”

Vinyasa with Mirian
With instructor Mirian Perry. Vinyasa, or simply ‘flowing with breath’ is a dynamic style of yoga which joins physical postures, or asanas, with inhales and exhales, creating a steady internal rhythm for the practice. This class is designed to cultivate heat in the body by flowing through sun salutations and creative sequences with a strong focus on alignment and the power of breath awareness.
Yin Yoga with Dana
A great compliment to more yang – or active – forms of exercise, yin is the practice of long-held (typically 3-5 minutes) postures supported by blocks, bolsters, and blankets. Yin postures are practiced passively while the muscles are relaxed to allow the connective tissues of the body to take on the pressure of the stretch. With regular practice, yin can help to increase flexibility and range of motion of the joints.
