Q: Who is it run by?
Anti Anxiety Yoga has been written, developed and presented by Katie Brown. Katie is the author of Mother Me and a senior yoga teacher and lecturer. Katie is a mum-of-three – with a son doing his HSCs this year. She has been teaching yoga for 20 years on the Northern Beaches and is a senior lecturer with the IYTA – International yoga Teachers’ Association. She teaches on the IYTA’s Diploma of Yoga Teaching and Yin Yoga Foundations course and runs the Restorative Yoga Teaching certificate. She is also a qualified massage therapist. Katie says: “I’ve experienced anxiety and depression in the past – which is why I practised and then studied massage and yoga. I’ve continued to research this area, with the intention of being able to create calm and deal with stress naturally on a daily basis.”
Katie teaches the class from her yoga studio and is often accompanied by her one-year-old Spaniel, Minty who loves to chill out in the relaxations!
Q: What will I need?
This course is being delivered online and Live via Zoom. So you will need a device to watch the class. If possible, you will need a yoga mat, cushion or pillow and blanket. You may also like an eye pillow or eye pad for the relaxations.
If you can practise in a quiet space and ensure you will not be disturbed for the hour-long class. You are welcome to invite family members to do the class with you but try not to talk during the session, so you can focus on the instructions J
Q: When do I need to log in?
The class begins promptly at 7.30pm and will run until 8.30pm – there will be time for a quick discussion/check in before the class and after the class – these check in/out sessions won’t be recorded.
Q: Then what?
After the check in, I will mute everyone and will record the session – don’t worry, you won’t be captured on the recording as I will spotlight the video.
If you would like, I can then send you the link and code to the recordings. So you can do them during your HSCs.
After the class I will stop the recording – you can stay behind if you have questions.
Q: How long does the program run?
It is four weeks from 7.30pm – 8.30pm on Tuesday, September 15, 22, 29 and October 6 from 7-8pm AEST.
Q: Anything else I need to know?
Try not to eat a big meal just before the class as there will be some movement. Wear loose, comfortable clothes and have a bottle of water close by. If you have any concerns about the program check with your doctor or psychologist before doing the sessions.
