You are not alone.
Anxiety is the fear of being incapable or unable to face an impending circumstance or event. It is a normal emotion that as an informant, enhances preparedness, diminishes risks and promotes safety. But when it leads with excessive nervousness, apprehension, and worry, it becomes a mental disorder that if mild it might be vague and unsettling, while if severe it may seriously affect day-to-day living. The recent COVID-related restrictions have tested our capabilities, while the now obvious devastating effects of climate change clearly question what’s to come. As a result, anxiety runs high in most of the world’s population. Symptoms include those of stress - such as palpitations and sweating - out of proportion to the impact of the event, inability to set aside the worry, and generalized restlessness amongst others. Join us to explore how Yoga can help us manage and regulate it.
Are you ready to process your anxiety so that you can manage and regulate it and function better in life?
Our feelings inform us of how we experience our lives, how we relate to others, and ultimately, who we are. In turn, they influence our decision-making processes determining how we behave and perform our multi-layered life roles. But what happens when a feeling ceases to be an informant and instead becomes a driver leading the way? Then we are ushered into dysfunction, trapped in an emotional hamster’s wheel. It's then important to develop adequate resources so we can trust our resilience.
