Yoga for anxiety - releasing fear

Please click on the video below to watch, 'Yoga for anxiety - releasing fear' on my YouTube Channel



Please read the disclaimer on the blog before following these videos -http://flexiladies.blogspot.co.uk/p/disclaimer.html

Please note-Please consult your doctor if you are having severe panic attacks or chronic anxiety - there is much a doctor can offer you that would complement your yoga practice such as Cognitive behaviour therapy or counselling which you could do alongside yoga. 
Please be aware that these yoga practices may take you to an emotional edge that can be very painful if you suffer from severe anxiety. Just as with a physical edge, you should back off if the emotions get too intense.  I would strongly advise you to check with your medical practitioner before undertaking these yoga practices.

Fear is part of our make-up, it has to be to keep us from danger.  The problem is when fear takes over getting in the way of us enjoying our lives. Fear is at the root of anxiety whether that fear takes the form of obsessive thoughts over painful memories that make you fearful or worries about what will be that you fear.  When we suffer long term anxiety we hold tension in our chests, hips, spine. The kidney meridian, an energy runs down both sides of the torso, down the inner thighs to the feet and tension in these areas can cause blockages to the flow of energy resulting in fear and sleep issues which make anxiety worse.  In this week's video therefore we will focus on releasing tension in these areas so that energy can flow freely and fear is released.

Namaste,
