Yoga Techniques for Panic Attacks

Often arising during periods of transition, panic attacks trigger the same adrenaline rush as “fight or flight” response. The disorder results from a variety of factors that range from genetic to biological; symptoms usually respond to a combination of behavioral therapy and medication. Relaxation techniques, such as breathing exercises and visualization, have the potential to manage panic attacks and prevent future episodes.

Yoga Techniques for Stress Overload

Although some schools of Yoga in the west emphasize the physical practice, many forms of Yoga exercise the mind as well as the body. Meditation is a concentrated effort for slowing the mind and body down, by practicing mantra, japa, mindfulness or deep breathing to center one's ability to focus, while blocking out audio or visual input. Much like abdominal breathing, meditation has a relaxing effect on a person's mind and body.

Yoga Techniques for Chemotherapy Recovery

Healing, Restorative, or Therapeutic Yoga does not have to be complex, physically taxing, or vigorous. Patients, who are new to Yoga, can begin by learning one or two poses to practice on a regular basis. Repeating a sequence each morning, or evening, can be a powerful routine to help the healing process, by building strength and agility.

Yoga Techniques to Move Beyond Stress

The asanas also re-align the spine, which helps to increase the free flow of prana or life-force energy throughout the entire body. Stress and muscular tension often cause us to feel more tired than we really are and contribute to mental tension as well. As the tension is released, optimal spinal alignment is restored and energy flows more freely. At the completion of a Yoga class a student will feel that the sensation of tiredness and stress is eased and replaced with a feeling of lightness, expansiveness, and complete well-being.
