4 Tools to Manage Anxiety

with Rolf Sovik

Details

Yoga gives us four powerful tools for managing anxiety. Since anxiety constricts and disrupts our breathing, the first tool is to practice relaxed breathing. The second is a regular relaxation practice. Using a mantra—the third tool—gives the mind a resting place and brings joy, comfort, and strength to our inner life. Finally, Rolf describes a specific contemplation practice that helps us see fear as a passing phenomenon that we can work with and begin to control.
