Anxiety is so present in all of our everyday lives. From worry to anticipation, anxiety is something that everyone experiences. It shows up as a variety of symptoms including having difficulty breathing, tight chest, feeling light headed, sweaty palms, upset stomach and can sometimes lead to an anxiety attack. Having the tools to help manage your anxiety so that it occurs much less frequently and to learn what to do if you do experience anxiety is pivotal to your overall health and happiness.
Throughout the day we often forget about our breath. We don’t notice how we are breathing so during times of stress, it is easy for our breath to become stressed as well. Take time throughout the day to check in with yourself and notice your breath. In times of stress our breath often becomes short and shallow, causing tightness in your chest.
Practice: soften your belly and take a long slow deep inhale though your nose breathing into your belly allow it to expand. Exhale slowly through your nose and feel your belly relax. This exercise is nice to do with your hand on your belly so you can really feel your breath.
Movement has been reported to significantly help manage anxiety. Exercising your body in some way, preferably doing something that you enjoy, is a wonderful way to get out of your head and feel more connected to your body. It has been proven to release feel good hormones that help with anxiety. It also relaxes tension in your muscles caused by anxiety. Practice: next time you are feeling anxious, try moving your body in some way. Go for a walk, do gentle stretches, do some yoga, whatever movement you prefer. At first you might feel resistant to it, but after you start to move you might notice your anxiety begin to feel smaller.
Mindfulness helps you learn to stay and be with what is in the present moment. It is a way to practice staying with difficult feelings without analyzing or suppressing them. There are many ways to practice mindfulness. For example, mindfulness meditation. This meditation practice is done by sitting and watching your thoughts, without judgment. It is a nice way to slow down and be present with yourself. When you are mindful, you are calm, grounded, and have clarity.

Yoga for Anxiety & Stress Relief
Students will have the opportunity to explore a variety of mind and body practices that will help reduce the symptoms associated with anxiety and stress. It is rare we get an opportunity to stop, breathe and be present. By slowing down, you allow yourself to check in and become mindful, reawakening the awareness within you. Camille will guide students through restorative poses which activates the parasympathetic nervous system, allowing you to deeply relax. Camille will provide students with tools such as breathing and journaling exercises to manage anxiety and stress, ending with a calming meditation, allowing students to lead a more peaceful and happy life.

What exactly is a health coaching? Health coaching is an opportunity to work one on one with a wellness professional to address your health goals. Anything from losing weight, managing painful periods, to gaining tools to help with stress and anxiety. Through taking practical actions steps, I am here to guide you to living your healthiest and happiest life.
I have had a passion for health & wellness for as long as I can remember. I have wonderful memories of growing up in a family where we ate home cooked meals every night and always having a vegetable and herb garden in my backyard. I have always had a passion for food which lead me to graduating from The Culinary Institute of America in 2017.
After dealing with anxiety, PCOS, and painful periods for years I decided to put my health into my own hands with a holistic approach to healing. I am passionate about empowering clients to discover the connection between nutrition, anxiety and hormones and helping them come up with lasting changes to improve their health.
