Inner balance in untouched nature
So it’s no wonder that there’s no better place than nature itself to leave everyday life behind and work for your own well-being. In the forest or in the mountains, the human nervous system reacts immediately. Stress hormones drop, blood pressure normalizes, man comes to rest. “With our mindfulness and breathing exercises, everyone can find their own balance”, says Carmen Drexel. “Our offerings combine theory with physical exercises and activities in and with nature. Participants learn new ways to identify stressors and deal with them better. ”
Sport for more resilience.
Sport is a good way to regulate stress in one’s own system in a simple and effective way and to return to everyday life strengthened. Defeating the inner bastard, that gives you strength. Avoid accidents and injuries while exercising with mindfulness – If you learn to listen to your own body, you reduce the risk of getting hurt. Mindfulness simply means to be fully in the here and now with no evaluation whatsoever. This helps you listen to your body and increase your ability to concentrate. Mindfulness, however, has to be trained, just like any sport.
Stays in nature, especially in the forest, help to slow down, gain new energy and train mindfulness. In addition, inhaling forest air has a positive effect on our immune system, even in winter. A so-called “bath” in the forest, in nature, has been proven to reduce stress, lower blood pressure and promote concentration. How? Get involved and feel it for yourself in body, mind and soul.
Alternative program in bad weather.
Dive, dive into different worlds, to different places. Forget about everyday life for a while and give your body, mind and soul a break. Calm and relaxation should take place during a fantasy trip and our perception channels (seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling and tasting) should be activated subconsciously.
This meditation acts like an energy shower! Shake off the stress of everyday life with its many impressions from your body in a gentle way – just let go – and then recharge your batteries by dancing movements! This meditation technique also relaxes deeper levels in the body, can release blockages if you get involved. The result is a feeling of happiness, deep relaxation and joy.
Carmen Drexel – Breathing, Relaxation Coach & Mindfulness Trainer.
I grew up in a small, quiet hamlet outside the community center, but everything was surrounded by woods and meadows and I was able to move freely in nature. Movement in nature still plays a big role for me today! As a two-time mom, landlady and member of various voluntary offices, there are times when the mountain you have to overcome seems insurmountable! Nowadays, many are burdened with worries and existential fears and have lost touch with nature, their roots and themselves!
Through my training as a breathing, relaxation coach and mindfulness trainer I found ways to restore that connection! I was amazed how quickly and effectively even short breathing exercises can work in stress or anxiety situations to find oneself again! I realized how good it is and so I want to pass on this experience, share it, experience it with other people.
Breathe consciously to establish the natural connection to breathing, to the body and to our consciousness!
Do not exaggerate or force yourself to do anything. The needs of the body should never be suppressed.
If you experience anxiety or discomfort, stop the exercise immediately.
Be patient – not every exercise works and works right from the first time.
Do not wear cramping clothes or jewellery.
The spine should be held straight, so the exercises at the beginning are recommended lying or standing.
And there should be some time between the last meal.
