In addition, by teaching specific physical Yoga postures that release somatically-held negative emotions, such as grief and anger, you will further support your students in releasing negative emotions and memories that are no longer serving their highest good. Anger is often lodged in the throat chakra, shoulders, neck, and hip areas. Just think of the saying, “She swallowed her anger.” When we swallow our anger, we do so by constricting and closing the throat area. When this action of constricting the throat becomes habitual, the thyroid gland may be negatively affected over time.
