Event description
Autogenic Training (AT) is one of the oldest and most famous techniques for combatting stress and improving mental and physical health.

About this event

After our summer break, we are starting with a brand new group for Autogenic training (without autosuggestion).

Autogenic Training (AT) is a recognized technique in psychology for combatting stress and improving mental and physical health and concentration. It was originally developed by the German psychiatrist Johannes Heinrich Schultz and is one of the most famous and oldest techniques for achieving deep relaxation. In this course we will focus on a newer version of AT: Autogenic Training without autosuggestion (AAT), which represents a continuation, synthesis, and improvement of the techniques of classical AT. It is not necessary to have any previous training in AT to attend this course. We will also talk about combining AAT with other techniques, like mindfulness of visualisation.

AAT represents the integration of selected mental exercises, whose aim is to help individuals get rid of excess psychological and physiological tension by making useful changes in brain waves and balancing the Autonomous Nervous System. The main goal of the training is for the participants to master the independent practice of this relaxation technique. After the course, AAT is applied as needed and regular exercise is not necessary. Learning how to do these exercises requires little of your time.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to do them in just a few minutes and in almost any situation: before important events, public presentations, in stressful situations, in the office, before going to bed for better sleep, etc.
