Yoga for Anxiety

By Lori Ferry’, RYT & Reiki Master Teacher

 

stretch sunrisePracticing yoga can not only be an effective stress reliever, but also a way to ease symptoms of anxiety. By consciously focusing the attention on the breath and the body simultaneously, yoga can help to relieve anxiety while also releasing physical tension.

Stress can reveal itself in many ways in our bodies.  It shows up as back or neck pain, sleeping problems, headaches and even the inability to focus.

Yoga links the breath with the body which helps improve not only physical well-being but also mental well-being.

A regular yoga practice creates mental clarity and calmness; increase body awareness, relieves chronic stress and relaxes the mind.   With a yoga practice you will enhance your overall health, improve balance and heal and prevent injuries.

Yoga allows length, strength and flexibility while stilling the mind and bringing joy to the heart.  If you have never done yoga before, or perhaps it has been a while since you stepped on on your mat, give yoga a try and see what yoga can do for you.

 

Join Lori Ferry’ for an all-levels Vinyasa Yoga class Saturday at 9am at Alpine Integrated Medicine on Redmond Ridge in Redmond, Wa. If you’re new to yoga or have been practicing for years, this class is a perfect combination of flow, breath, alignment and even props are used.
