Why yoga can help heal your soul
If you suffer from anxiety and/or depression, you know all too well just how much it can affect your day to day wellbeing and quality of life. The mental and physical symptoms can sometimes be so debilitating it can be hard to see a way back to yourself. Finding the right kind of yoga class in the right kind of space can help to create a bridge of connection. One that can help you re-connect with your calm and peaceful inner self and one that can also help you connect and re-connect with other kind and supportive souls.
Yoga, Yin & Restorative especially, can help to ease stress and anxiety, reduce feelings of nervousness and enhance mindfulness. The breathing techniques taught in yoga can help to calm the nervous system, the physical asanas can help to release tension and stiffness in the body and the meditation aspects can help to focus and ease the mind.
Finding a safe & supportive space is such an important factor for someone with anxiety and depression who is looking for a place to practice yoga. No matter how much you want to get there, just getting yourself to a studio for that first class can feel like the hardest thing in the world. But if you can just get yourself there, if you can find that kind face and a hug when you arrive and if you can surrender to the mat, you can begin your journey back to yourself.
