Yoga is a special system designed to release anxiety from your whole being - emotionally, mentally, and physically. Yoga teachers across the world empathize with cancer survivors. Yoga teacher training programs have now modified and reformed asanas to heal every muscle, nerve, and gland in the body.
Yoga asanas precisely address the tension, and blockage of energy (stress) in joints and organs. When this anxiety is released, energy can flow more easily throughout the body and align one's mind, body, and spirit. This flow frees negative energy and promotes the circulation of healthy energy.
The key to incorporating Yoga into one's life during stressful times is to take a holistic approach. A beginner Yogi will become lost or miss the mark completely if they focus their energy only on the physical aspect of Yoga. Yoga is much more than holding postures or flowing through them. The physical demands of hatha yoga alone can generate a grueling workout when poses are done for an extended amount of time.
The real benefit lies in bridging one's mind with the body's energy. A stressed conscience will lead to unpleasant physical expressions just as a rushed contorted pose generates unpleasant thoughts. Yoga practitioners use their minds to free their body and their bodies to free their minds.
Yoga and yoga therapy are ultimately tools designed to align the mind and body and promote healthy energy in one's life. Yoga may not cure anxiety, but it will improve well being given the right balance in energy.
Yoga, pranayama and meditation are all powerful tools in the reduction and prevention of excess states of anxiety. All of these practices cultivate the mental faculties of faith, self-control, concentration, determination, and patience. And when practiced together will create an even stronger effect on calming the mind and emotions.
