Yoga Poses to Help Relieve Anxiety

Helpful Yoga Poses For Anxiety

Research tells us that nearly half of the population has experienced a diagnosable mental illness at some point in their life. 💙

Mental health issues are now considered to be one of the main causes of the overall disease burden worldwide. 💙

What can we do about this? 🤷🏼‍♀️

Especially if YOU are someone that experiences mental health issues.

It can feel exhausting, scary, overwhelming, and extremely isolating. 💙

I am a HUGE advocate for psychotherapy, but I also believe we MUST address ALL layers of the mind & body.

Therapeutic yoga is a gentle approach that helps you move & breathe with love so you can feel your best.💙

If you live with crippling anxiety, I’d love to offer you these poses to try. 💙

🌟 Childs pose - This rounds your spine and promotes a feeling of security. Try to breathe into your back body.

🌟 Knees into chest (apanasana) - This is a great pose to try in bed. It’s relaxing, reduces irritability, and also helps with low back issues.

🌟 Mountain pose - It’s not just standing around or only for beginners. It is highly effective for keeping your body awareness in check. Try using the mantra “I am” as you inhale and “here” when you exhale.

🌟 Tree pose - Focus on one spot and breathe into the shape. Visualize growing roots into the earth.

Why does this matter for you? 🤷🏼‍♀️

Because MENTAL HEALTH IS HEALTH! 🙌🏼

You can only do so much with talk therapy. You NEED to move, breathe, and strengthen the nervous system. 🌟

I promise, promise, promise when you carve out even 5 minutes a day for mindfulness your life WILL TRANSFORM into a happier & healthier you. 💙

Only 5 minutes.
