Yoga For Anxiety

 Thurs. Jan 10 7-9:30 at One Yoga

In our busy, modern world, anxiety is epidemic – in many ways, it is our modern human condition. The physical, mental, emotional, and behavioral symptoms of anxiety can influence every aspect of our lives. Many people suffering from anxiety view it as a pathology, to be eliminated. Yoga offers a somewhat different view. Anxiety is a common response to stress when our lives out of balance- it is the call to change, which brings awareness to our imbalances. Yoga seeks to understand its causes and symptoms, so that we can work to restore balance and make meaningful change through skillful choices.

Anxiety is rooted in overstimulation of the Sympathetic Nervous System – our “Flight, Flight or Freeze” response. Yoga is one of the most powerful ways to restore balance to our nervous system. Through the use of specific postures, breathing practices, relaxation and meditation techniques and self-reflection, yoga is a holistic means to calm anxiety and restore balance and well-being.

  • Explore common causes and symptoms of anxiety
  • Learn Yogic practices for restoring balance and calm
