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.

Practice:                    Introducing the first three formula and offloading exercises

              Impact of negative emotional states on our well being

Day 2: 

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
