In our safe, comfortable group setting we will learn the many ways anxiety presents in our thoughts and our physical bodies. Information about stress triggers and how to acknowledge and try to release them and how they are different for each one of us. Understanding how life experiences and events set the stage for some types of anxiety and then learning simple techniques that are scientifically tested to help reduce our anxiety reactions. These include breathwork and self-guided thoughts (meditation).
