Carol Confino E-RYT 50, C-IAYT
Stress management and caring for your health have been part of my life for over 30 years. It has been with me since starting as a nursing assistant, through a 14-year career as a nurse, as a yoga teacher and as a Yoga Health coach to work more on preventing illness and dis-ease.
Through my work with yoga I have found ways of dealing with depression, self-doubt, and anxiety. The simple process of noticing when these issues come up begins the process of overcoming. Ignoring things does not work but finding simple ways to care for your body and balance out the thoughts of the mind can improve your life. Yoga, in all its forms, can go a long way in finding ways to deal with all the things we are confronted with day by day.
