Intro to Stress Reduction Series
“Hope Wellness” officially launched with a 3-part introductory workshop focused on learning basic techniques of stress reduction that can help to improve our daily lives (including: sleep, productivity and daily coping strategies).
• Part 1- “Back to Basics”: An introduction to stress and how it impacts our daily lives; we will learn and practice a variety of relaxation techniques (ex. Deep Breathing & Progressive Relaxation)
• Part 2 - “Breathe, Stretch, Let it Go”: Building off of the information in Part 1 we will add light muscle stretching to increase the tension release
• Part 3 - “Stress TKO”: Amplified stress reduction based on the combination of a fun mini workout + tension release stretching + progressive relaxation
