Intro to The Toolkit- 3:00pm PT with Mikaela

May 10, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm PDT

Reduce stress and grow resilience with The Resilience Toolkit.

This 3-part workshop teaches you how stress impacts your body, hijacks your emotions, and interferes with your relationships. With The Resilience Toolkit, you’ll discover how to safely and quickly relax when triggered by stressful situations, making it easier to meet the day-to-day challenges of life.

In this series, you’ll learn how to:

📝 Identify what is stealing your resilience

🔋 Reclaim your energy, time, and well-being

🧠 Develop deeper self-knowing and self-trust

🛑 Create and hold healthy boundaries

💗 Cultivate more compassion and connection to yourself and others

The Resilience Toolkit is meant for all body types and is easily adaptable for any fitness level or mobility challenge. After completing The Resilience Toolkit, you can practice it on your own, whenever you need it!

Empower your body to heal itself and open up to a greater sense of joy and wholeness.

The Resilience Toolkit is a system for reducing stress and growing resilience in individuals, organizations, and communities so they can envision and create positive change.

The Toolkit teaches you how to recognize your own stress and relaxation cycles. You’ll understand when your stress is helping or harming you. You’ll learn how to choose from a menu of quick, effective stress-reduction tools. And you’ll build your new skills into deep, lasting habits that create powerful transformation over time. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________
