Public Service Announcement

One of my yoga students wanted to share the following statement as a Public Service Announcement (P.S.A.) for alternative or holistic solutions for people suffering with anxiety:
“When I started this yoga class at the beginning of the semester, I was on two daily anxiety medications and still feeling the effects of stress in my everyday life. One medication was causing me to hold onto over ten pounds of extra weight. As the semester progressed, with more and more yoga, I started to feel as if I was ready to wean myself off the medication, so that’s exactly what I did. I calm myself with breathing techniques at night , and when things seem to all hit me at once, I will listen to meditation music and do my breathwork in bed. With these techniques, I always drift off into dreamland, no problem. I totally accredit this to yoga.”
