Yoga For Anxiety
Approximately 40 million people in the U.S., or 20% of all adults, suffer from anxiety. Even if you have not been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, most people experience some level of stress, tension, and anxiety in their everyday lives. Fortunately, there are ways that yoga practice can support you during these periods of ups and downs, and help protect your internal well being.
Yoga is a holistic system that recognizes our experiences are defined by more than our mind and our thoughts. Yoga embraces the complexity of our being and aims to create harmony and healing in body, mind, emotions, and spirit.
