One of the most prevalent emotions that people of all ages deal with is anxiety. Anxiety is a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease about something with an uncertain outcome. Uncertainty has been such a dominant theme in our lives, is it any wonder that levels of anxiety have skyrocketed?
It is normal to feel anxious every now and again. It’s your brain notifying you of a potential danger or a stressor. We can feel anxious if there is an important presentation or report to prepare, a test to take or a significant life decision to make. “I do…” anyone?) Everyone responds differently to anxiety.
If anxiety is interfering with your life, your physical or mental wellbeing, it is vital that action is taken.
Anxiety that gets too intense can make you feel nauseous and light headed. Chronic anxiety, anxiety that is persistent and does not go away, can be harmful and have a substantial effect on your mental and physical health.
If anxiety is interfering with your life, your physical or mental wellbeing, it is vital that action is taken. You may be here to try something that can assist you in place of medication. You may already be on medication and want to try something that can be done to support it.
An Emotional Fitness Class is like yoga for your insides. It is both mindfulness and bodyfulness-based and offers you a way of gently and easily managing your anxiety to reduce its effects.
In the class you will be guided to find relief from your anxiety using Shape of Emotion, a pioneering mindfulness and bodyfulness-based process that we developed for regulating emotion.
Shape of Emotion is based on the most recent developments on neuroscience and is unique in that it works on the structure or shape of the emotion. You do not need to label or name the emotion that you are feeling, you just need to be able to feel it, and it won’t be for long. Once you have cleared your anxiety you will be offered an opportunity to boost your state by enhancing a supportive positive emotion.
If you are familiar with Shape of Emotion and Emotional Fitness Classes, we know that you will find this a useful addition to your emotional fitness strategy. If you are new to this work, enjoy the experience and find relief from your anxiety.
Yours in feeling

This is relieving. I’m dealing with anxiety so this helps a lot. You are a lifesaver.
Thank you I'm grateful for all you do, Chantal. I truly believe it has helped me a lot to do this [Emotional Fitness Classes].
Very calm, thank you.
My heart feels more relaxed, thank you.
It has helped me out of my lonely depressed state of mind.
Thank you everyone. I needed that more than I knew.
Thank you, this was lovely!
I like that it [doing Shape of Emotion] feels more gentle [than EFT / tapping].
I have been experiencing a lot of stress chronically, but a particular distress was an abrupt feeling of loneliness that started around the middle of the year. I must say a big thank you for all the work you do. I was pleasantly surprised at how helpful this class was almost immediately.
I have frequently attended the online Emotional Fitness Classes to deal with a variety of emotions that have come up. And they do come up, (we are complex beings!) ranging from fear of failure to uncertainty of myself operating in a men’s world to just overcoming being distracted by day to day chores.
My coach recommended that I attend the Emotional Fitness Class. The way the sessions were conducted had synergy and had a very seamless transaction. The instructions were clear. The exercises left me feeling happier than I have been in the past months.
I really enjoyed the class. I have been going through a lot of stress and I tend to overthink a lot. The guided talk helps a lot and to be honest I felt a difference in my life. So thank you for doing this... you really are helping.
