Developing Resilience Online Course

Friday 01 July, 2022 - Monday 01 July, 2024

Are you wanting to improve your ability to withstand life’s challenges? Do you wish you had a greater capacity to cope and adapt to adversity? Are you wanting to intentionally respond to life rather than react?  Luckily, our inner resilience is a natural part of who we are and is a trait that we can strengthen, cultivate and build upon.


On This Course You Will

-Train the body and mind to respond rather than react

-Calm the nervous system through yogic practices like conscious breathing, yoga nidra & restorative yoga

-Connect and learn from the online Developing Resilience community group

-Create new neural pathways that favour equanimity and resilience

Course Overview

Resilience is our ability to come back to our centre, to rebound from adversity and to respond to a challenge in a creative way. Resilience is vital; without it, we wouldn’t survive the accumulated hardships, transitions, and stressful situations that are present in even the most privileged people’s lives. The change we are all facing on some level due to the Covid-19 pandemic can be difficult to navigate with grace. Our online course ‘Developing Resilience’ by Swami Karma Karuna offers support for the body, mind and nervous system during this time of uncertainty. Our ability to adapt, adjust, accomodate and find a new way forward requires us to step into our inner source of resilience.

The course includes theory, yoga practices and self reflection exercises to help us cultivate this quality. Yoga builds resilience in the body and mind by introducing small amounts of stress in a controlled scenario. This can then be mirrored off of the yoga matt, in our everyday lives. For example, the next time you’re experiencing frustration toward a family member you might find it easier to come back to the breath and respond rather than react. We will identify why resilience is important, how the practices of yoga & meditation can help to create the relaxation response and why it’s important in this day and age.

This is an inclusive course. All bodies and levels of experience are welcome, including absolute beginners. Once purchased, you will have access to the course for one year.
