How Yoga Can Change Your Life

This Experience will be facilitated by Marie Burns, founder of Re-Wire.

Today we have unequivocal evidence of stress on the nervous system. It can lead to chronic inflammation and autoimmune problems as well as exacerbating conditions with anxiety and hormonal components such as weight gain and mental illness.

We can help these conditions by calming and re-wiring our nervous system.

Virtually anything you do good or bad changes or re-wires your nervous system – it’s how we learn and survive.

Marie will do a short talk about the science of yoga on human wellbeing and in particular nervous system health. This will be a thoughtful and provocative talk, heartfelt after her own hard-won experience. She will answer questions on yoga and how it might help you and then you will be invited to a yoga session focused on re-setting the nervous system.

Marie Burns

Facing the prospect of a double knee replacement Marie began a daily yoga practice. That was over 10 years ago. Today as well as a Chartered Psychologist and Somatic therapist she is also a yoga teacher.

Decades of not looking after herself with tortuous exercise routines, burning the candle at both ends and wearing stress as a badge of honour literally took her to her knees. Today she knows better.
