Helping students heal anxiety through Yoga

This is a subject I am close to. Yoga can help heal anxiety: revealing symptoms and helping to address it’s root causes.

The body and mind both respond to various yogic tools, including: asana, pranayama, lifestyle adjustments and tuning the senses inward. I believe that all these tools provide a wonderful combination, aiding in healing anxiety.

Although a good asana practice (Vinyasa, Bikram, Hatha Flow) can help burn off nervous energy…sometimes a more passive/relaxing approach is just what the student needs. Depending on the person, a Yang practice such as Vinyasa can actually be counter intuitive to your anxiety. Trying out a Gentle Yoga or Yin Yoga class can ease you into a sweet surrender and leave you feeling nourished and peaceful.

Below are some poses specifically with a therapeutic focus in anxiety. Try them out at home! Namaste
