Anxiety Institute Presents:
Understanding the Power of Endorphins

Presented by Samantha Roller and Anja Mubuuke from Anxiety Institute

You may know endorphins as feel-good chemicals that boost happiness and reduce pain. They’re a lot more than that and may just play a broader role in our body. Although there’s still a lot we don’t understand about endorphins, findings of research studies indicate exciting possibilities from raising endorphins levels, for both body and mind.

In this workshop, students will not only learn about how movement can increase endorphin production, they will also reap the benefits first-hand. Anja and Samantha will lead a fun, amazing workout routine you can do from home then a calming, dynamic yoga session to integrate everything learned from the session.

Audience will need a mat. Presenters used a PowerPoint.
