YOGA & MENTAL HEALTH
Yoga is the science of the self. We turn our attention- our awareness within to understand ourselves because how we relate to ourselves will impact how we relate to others.
Today we are more stimulated than ever before in history. Our attention is continuously occupied. On top of it all we have to work, we have family obligations, political and economic pressures… When do we take the time to focus on ourselves?
Join us Tuesday December 13th for our discussion on how to reduce stress and tension in our lives. We’ll explore simple techniques to help release tension and we’ll talk about how we can bring meaningful lasting changes into our lives by identifying our habits and our thought patterns.
PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN YOGA MATS!
Yoga Instructor: Siri Gopal
Siri Gopal's spiritual journey began in 2011 at the age of 22. He had reached a state where he was so disconnected with his body that he didn’t even realize he had developed scoliosis. He explains how he was unmotivated, apathetic and was becoming very depressed. At the time, he was studying Business Commerce at Carlton University but still felt that something was missing. Finally, in 2012 without knowing where it would lead him Siri Gopal made the decision to take a year off school and enrolled in a Hatha Yoga Teachers Training program at Chrysalis Yoga. Since then, Siri Gopal has been leading workshops and classes on kundalini yoga at Waves of Meaning in Burlington, ON.
