This two-day workshop will give participants the opportunity to learn the full autogenic sequence for their own personal use, with an understanding of the theory behind this technique. Sue ran this weekend for Yoga Scotland in the Scottish Borders and has been asked to run it again in Edinburgh. Autogenics can be used in conjunction with a yoga practice or as a relaxation practice on its own. Both days will include movement/asana.
Theory: Background to the technique
Practice: Introducing the first three formula and offloading exercises
Discussion: Impact of negative emotional states on our well being
Theory: Offloading negative emotional states; neuroscience and stress
Practice: Consolidating practice from day 1 and introducing final three formula
Discussion: Positive affirmations and their use in autogenic training; differences/ similarities between autogenics and yoga techniques
