Stress: How are we really coping?

  • Coco & Co vientiane Laos (map)

It is not a secret that our lifestyle with its non stop demands, expectations, deadlines is not sustainable on the long run. We find ourselves juggling between work, family, friends, and ourselves, trying to deliver, perform more but eventually its not working.

We get stressed, at times to the point of a burnout, struggling with chronic pain, health issue and relationships unable to find ways to disconnect and turn the off switch. According to recent scientific studies , meditation, breath centric yoga, and breathing techniques, can ease that stress, help boost your energy, improve your sleep and overall improve your health

This session is about practicing pause, turning the switch off to better cope with stress and external pressures.

No experience required. The workshop is for anyone looking to ease from stress and to find a more balanced lifestyle.
