Anxiety is a challenging yet natural response that tells us something doesn’t feel safe. It arises when the nervous system becomes overwhelmed and begins looking for help. Yoga is unique in its wholistic approach to well-being. Its consideration of the body, mind and heart has profound effects on the nervous system. Understanding what lies behind anxiety can help transform this powerful and intelligent energy.
