I began to struggle with depression, anxiety, and compulsive, intrusive thoughts as a young teenager. I sought out many treatments and therapies over the years. Entering my thirties, I have finally come to recognize that healing cannot just happen in the mind.
When a friend sent me a link to Bobby’s Neurogenic Yoga classes, I decided to give it a try as I was already familiar with the benefits of yoga for mental and physical health. This is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for myself. Learning and practicing neurogenic yoga for the last six Monday evenings has allowed me to release so much tension and stress from my mind and body.
It is not an intellectual process and you don’t have to talk or even think about anything difficult you have experienced – this practice is more about tuning back in to our own nervous systems and letting them take care of themselves again. Each time I attended a class, I left feeling calmer and more present in my body, and was able to carry this into the rest of my week. This practice allowed me to let go of whatever stressors I was holding on to, and keep moving forward with more compassion for myself and others. I now see this practice as an amazing tool for stress management.
Learning this technique in such a welcoming and safe space has improved my relationship with my body, and I have gained greater awareness of when I am holding on to stress without having to think about it all the time! This practice has also allowed me to learn how to trust myself and my body for the first time in many years. I can’t recommend Neurogenic Yoga with Bobby enough. If you are looking to reconnect with yourself and your body and learn a wonderful and effective technique to release and reduce stress, I really encourage you to give this a try. Thank you Bobby for helping me to change my life!
