What is SMART

Stress Management and Relaxation Training (SMART) group integrates western counseling technology with ancient eastern practice in the post-modern era of hypermedia.

The goal of Stress Management and Relaxation Training is to control stress towards achieving optimal functioning.

Optimal Functioning means winning – it relates to performance and includes health and wellness.

“Yerkes-Dodson Law” – The law indicates that performance increases with physiological or mental arousal, but only up to a point. When levels of arousal become too high, performance decreases.

People perform and function optimally with at least some stress.

“Make it easy, make it light.”

“Sounds like us –
Feel the call, the urge to change. It starts undeniable the push continues – you can feel the awakening inside and out. We seek experience and guidance on the path.”

The exercises explored and presented at the Stress Management and Relaxation Training group integrate
western technology with ancient eastern practice in the post-modern era of hypermedia.

Now is the time – check out the group.
