Gentle Yoga For Stress Relief
Shift your relationship with stress and learn to deal with those curveballs life throws at you with presence and ease.
Are you easily irritated and resistant to changes in life?
Does balancing work, home and family feel unmanagable?
Do you have a seemingly endless to-do list?
Do you have unexplained aches and pains?
Do you feel like you have no time for things you enjoy?
If you answered yes to one or more of those questions, you’re in the right place. Unclench your jaw, release your tongue from the roof of your mouth, and keep reading.
What if I told you I know exactly how you feel and that there is a simple solution? It’s not one major thing that you can do or buy and it’s not a quick fix. It’s a small series of everyday habits you can easily form to rebuild confidence, connect to unshakable peace and to the unlimited energy reserve within you.

Don’t be a stranger: this course will always be there for you when you need it
Lifetime access to this online gentle yoga course will guide you along your journey as frequently as you like. Keep in mind that each time you practice, there is potential to show you different insights at different stages of your life.
We will begin each week with an introduction to the theme for the week. Next, a mantra—a word or phrase silently repeated to focus the mind. This mantra matches the theme of the week and helps with focusing the mind. Use this mantra at any time—especially when you feel stress come on. For example, you can practice seated, standing, lying down or while you’re waiting in line, driving or doing chores.
Each week, you’ll receive a 75 or 90 minute yoga practice (HD video) and a 10-20 minute guided pranayama practice (breathing exercise, mp3 audio) and can practice as frequently as you like.
To journey deeper into limited beliefs and thought patterns that may be holding you in a state of stressful thinking, I offer journal and bonus contemplation questions for each week. Being honest with yourself as you answer these questions in your journal will help reveal insights and bring awareness to areas of your life that create stress. If you want to get the most out of this program, I suggest journaling each day, keeping the questions in mind all week. Take note and pinpoint areas of stress in your life.
It is in the light of awareness that limited beliefs and thought patterns will dissipate.
More about why this course can bring about such profound and lasting change in your life
The natural state of the body is ease
The body intuitively knows how to heal itself if we clear the stress and give it the space to do so. Reclaiming a positive mind-body connection will combat stress with the antidote of relaxation and ease.
We use breath and body awareness to shift the focus away from the busyness of mind.
Getting to know yourself will set you free
When we clear stress from our minds and bodies, we allow the body to reset. We redirect energy to healing rather than stress. When we’re stressed, our cortisol and adrenalin levels rise as we anticipate threats.
This course shines a light on some of the “threats” the mind is trying to defend itself against—even the threats that aren’t real.
When we shine the light of awareness on our stressors, we may find that some are made from a negative or stressful belief system we have developed to cope.
With the help of this online yoga course, you can identify external and internal stressors. In doing so, you’ll be able to change old reactions, thought patterns and body memory. With practice, you will shift from stress to peace.
Teach your body to relax
When we practice yoga and pranayama—specifically the exercises in this online gentle yoga course—we are in essence telling the body and nervous system to relax. We turn on “rest and digest” mode, gradually turning off the stress response in the body.
The more frequently we practice, the more benefit we will see. The brain, body and nervous system have a remarkable ability to change. This course allows us to tap into the natural potential for change so we begin to feel better.
If you are starting this online gentle yoga course, you are most likely suffering from high levels of stress. These high stress levels are seeping into all areas of your life and you may feel like there is no escape from it. Or perhaps there are moments of relief, but they are fleeting.
Sometimes, the stress may not be obvious to you. It can lurk just below the surface, blocking your joy. Seemingly insignificant things may drain or overwhelm you.
It’s time to look at those areas of life causing stress and gently invite in change.
I want you to know that the chronic stress and anxiety you feel can be turned around. But first, we must establish a baseline for where you are now.
You may have been feeling this stress for months, years or even decades. Gently accept that how you feel at this moment is a practiced vibration—a habit that your body has been used to for some time. Your body and mind are very comfortable here. It’s time to get out of that comfort of stress and turn things around in a peaceful direction.
Imagine a wheel spinning in one direction. It has momentum in that direction and it would be impossible to instantly stop the wheel and go just as fast in the opposite direction.
The wheel must first slow down, stop, change direction and build speed.
In essence, that’s what this course is: slowing the current momentum of high stress and anxiety and pivoting you into the direction of relaxation and ease. Rather than stress being the “default,” peace and ease become your new baseline.
The purpose of this course is to gently guide the body and mind away from this habit and cycle of stress, anxiety, negativity, illness and disease. It is meant to bring the body back into balance.
Practicing these exercises will shift the body back into rest and digest mode—the body’s true and natural state—melting away the high stress response. Stress will no longer spill into each area of your life. Instead, feeling better will. The ups and downs of life will become more manageable and you can bounce back quicker from bumps in the road.
Boost immune function, strengthen the body-mind connection, learn body awareness, mindfulness and the healing power of living in the present moment. Relief from stress is possible. And closer than you think.
Come into the present moment
When the nervous system calms, the immune system and organs function optimally. The mind quiets and we tap into the present moment, where healing truly occurs—and where our lives happen. Life never exists beyond the present. Unclouded by stress, we are able to truly enjoy life, find our unique purpose, live creatively with health, joy, love, confidence, ease and inner peace.
We find vitality for life and well-being, which connects us to our divine energy reserve. This energy reserve can now be directed toward healing and vitality rather than being drained by constantly being on high-alert and on the defense. The more we breathe and remain present, the more alive we feel. We let our miraculous bodies heal themselves, boost energy levels and enhance our emotional state as we find balance in all areas of our lives.
Set your own pace
This online gentle yoga course has the flexibility for you to set your own pace and you can go back whenever you like. To get the most out of the course, starting out, begin with the mantra and the journal questions. Slow down your current momentum of stress by working with the mantra and identify stressful patterns with the journal questions. Add in the breathing and yoga practices to release and clear that stressful energy within body and mind.
You can practice the yoga sequence and pranayama once each or as many times as you like throughout the week. Be sure to find a quiet place with no distractions for your practices.
Like all things valuable, you will get out of this what you put in.
Be easy with yourself and relax into this gradual change from stress to peace.
If you are unsure of any yoga poses throughout the course and would like written or visual instruction, please purchase my book, “Yoga For Low Back and Hip Health,” for further instruction. On my website, I also have links to Amazon for recommended props to use while you practice, as well as additional resources including blogs, videos and guided mediations.

Facing liver failure, diabetes, and death after a 12-year battle with severe depression, anxiety and a misdiagnosis of bipolar disorder, I used yoga, meditation and nutrition to save my life. To say I am “passionate” about healthy living is an understatement. I’ve devoted my life to sharing the knowledge and lived experience I gained on my journey back to health to try to help others find the same relief.
