Are you in control of anxiety or is anxiety in control of you?

You are afraid of surrender because you don't want to lose control. But you never had control; all you had was anxiety.” -Elizabeth Gilbert.

Let’s take a minute to take a deeper look at our dear friend … anxiety.

These are just a few of the symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder from The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). How does anxiety show up for you? What do you do to help yourself manage these symptoms? As a yoga therapist, I can help with each of these symptoms:

  • Muscle tension - yoga asana and movement

  • Impaired concentration and worry - mindfulness practices

  • Fatigue - guided relaxation practices and yoga nidra

  • Restlessness - movement to release excess energy paired with calming practices

  • Difficulty sleeping - breath-work and relaxation techniques

  • Irritability - self-soothing practices and psycho-education

This is just scratching the surface of what I offer as a yoga therapist. If you are interested in learning more in my particular offerings, especially related to mental health, please click the link below.
