Yoga for Anxiety, Stress and Burnout: Experience, Application, Science, and Research


Anxiety, chronic stress, and burnout are highly prevalent mental health challenges in today’s modern society, especially for those in the fields of healthcare and education. Addressing these conditions is a vital part of avoiding problematic health conditions. 

Join Hari Kirin Khalsa, yoga therapist and physician, and Sat Bir S. Khalsa, associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and director of yoga research at Yoga Alliance, for a program that explains the science and research of yoga and how it specifically serves those with anxiety, stress, and burnout. 

Through yoga, meditation, reflection, and group process, you will   

  • Understand the physiology and psychology of anxiety, chronic stress, stress management, resilience, and burnout 
  • Gain scientific and clinical rationale of the psychophysiological mechanisms underlying behavioral mind-body interventions such as yoga  
  • Acquire an overview of the clinical trial research and evidence of mind-body practices for these conditions 
  • Experience practices specifically designed to transform anxiety, stress, and burnout and replenish you. 

Whether you currently care for a family member or for others in a professional role, return home with knowledge about the root cause of these challenges, a foundation of practices, and an action plan to uplift yourself and others.   

Note This workshop is suitable for those experiencing these conditions as well as for providers and caregivers who wish to apply these practices for their clients and patients.   

Note No prior yoga or meditation experience is needed. Those who are more comfortable practicing yoga in a chair are welcome. Please bring a notebook or journal and dress comfortably.
