Yoga for Anxiety Relief

Yoga for Anxiety relief is a real smart Idea.

Anxiety is a drag, she follows us around whispering in our ear lies and half truths.

But Smart girls know how important anxiety relief is. Yoga is a excellent tool to keep in our special bag of tricks to fight back against Anxiety.

Many of life's experiences can be scary, nerves and apprehension are understandable and normal but when fear is way out of proportion to what we might rationally expect; When we feel lack of control over our bodies, our emotions and our physical reactions...

Well, it's most likely  Anxiety is making decisions for us, deciding what we can and cannot cope with and ultimately how we live our lives. It's really not her business, she needs to butt out but many of us continue to allow her to scare us in submission and that's just not Smart.

  • We avoid potentially brilliant  opportunities and experiences because Anxiety decides they're too scary.
  • We worry ourselves sick, to the detriment of our health, our sleep and our relationships.
  • We adopt un-smart coping techniques, including; excess alcohol and drug or anything that numbs anxiety short term but creates or maintains more long term.
  • We can feel helpless and hopeless in the face of anxious feelings with adverse effects to our confidence and self-esteem.

Health Benefits of Yoga

The practice of yoga involves stretching the body and forming different poses, while keeping breathing slow and controlled. The body becomes relaxed and energized at the same time. There are various styles of yoga, some moving through the poses more quickly, almost like an aerobic workout, and other styles relaxing deeply into each pose. Some have a more spiritual angle, while others are used purely as a form of exercise.
