In our fast-paced lives, where routines and long hours are numbing our brains and bodies and reduce our leisure time, our stress response gets overused. Stress tends to lead to more stress. The most common yoga research findings are enhanced mood, reduced stress, enhanced quality of life, and reduced perceived stress. Anneke believes that well-being is more than just absence of disease, but an all encompassing state of physical, mental and emotional wellness.
Although traditionally the system of yoga was not developed as a mode by which to improve mental health issues, like stress and burn-out, its design offers an advanced approach and toolset to cultivate a state of Svastha, or optimal balance in health. And, yoga does supports self-compassion: for you as a teacher and your students. There is an important role for self-compassion in prevention and recovery of stress-related issues and burn-out. Working with burnout is not only for mental health professionals, yoga teachers and therapists can play an important role. Without loosing sight of our own (mental) health and be aware of compassion fatigue, which is not uncommon in people who work with people.
