Learn to manage stress and prevent disease through relaxation meditation

Constant stress impacts your health, vitality, sleep, and all of your life experiences. Stress diminishes your life-force, weakens your immunity and makes you vulnerable to physical and mental illness.

The good news is that you can develop the skill of relaxation and create a healthy relaxation baseline. This means, that rather than being stressed all the time and being prone to mental and physical illness, calmness and resilience becomes your natural state of being. This enables you to rest more deeply, recuperate your energy, and recover from illness and stresses when they occur.

Course benefits

  • Handle stress effectively as it occurs
  • Improve your immunity and resilience
  • Reduce tension and exhaustion at will
  • Recuperate from and manage chronic ill health
  • Relax anytime, anywhere, even when facing challenging situations

You will receive authentic training that combines yoga and meditation with Western medical knowledge. This powerful combination brings deep and embodied healing.

Theory. You’ll gain a firm understanding of exactly how stress is created in your body, mind and psyche. And importantly, you’ll know how to release it. The theory enables you to understand what’s going on in your body-mind and to apply the right technique at the right time. You’ll learn how to focus and relax at the same time so that you can release stress and tension before it becomes chronic.

Meditation Techniques. Practicing this set of powerful techniques will prevent fatigue and exhaustion, create a calm state of body and mind, replenish your energy and promote deep, refreshing sleep. All the techniques in this course combine into one final technique that you use in your daily life to combat the effects of stress.  This is an invaluable life skill.

Integration Exercises. You will monitor your stress and relaxation levels as you progress through the course, and beyond. You’ll identify the good and bad stresses in your life, and have a practical means to transform all stress into positive energy.

Quizzes and Certification. Quizzes are an excellent way to test your knowledge. You have to complete the quizzes if you want to gain a Certificate for CDP (Continuing Professional Development points).

The training is designed for you to study in short, easy increments that fit in easily with your busy life.

Title: Relaxation Meditation, Relax, De-stress, Recuperate

Authors: Dr Swami Shankardev Saraswati and Jayne Stevenson

Publisher: Big Shakti

Media: Online Course



The relaxation meditation course gave me excellent skills to pinpoint and release stress from my body and mind, and superb coping strategies for high-stress situations. I loved the interactivity – creating/uploading my Sankalpa (resolve) and monitoring my stress (and relaxation) levels throughout the course. My growing awareness and ability to let go of stress at will is a godsend. Having direct contact with teachers, Dr Swami Shankardev and Jayne Stevenson throughout the course was a blessing.

I highly recommend Big Shakti’s courses to anyone considering them. They are great value and easily accessible. The courses are in-depth, insightful and are delivered with an obvious care for participants and a passion to share their unique knowledge and experience. The materials provided with the courses such as meditations, activities and notes are an added bonus!

After doing your online relaxation meditation course relaxation is becoming more natural in my daily activities such as riding my bike to work; sitting at my desk; in meetings; talking to colleagues; riding home in the rain. It’s great to have learned the importance of relaxation, as I had never experienced meditation from that perspective before. It was simply explained too! I love that!
