How meditation can help reduce anxiety

Welcome to episode 16 of The Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy and meditation podcast.

For this episode, our Meditation Community Coordinator, Sara Bowman, sat down with our founder & lead meditation teacher, Brandt Passalacqua to talk about meditation, anxiety and much more. 

A regular meditation practice can lead to an expanded state of consciousness, through the retraining of the mind. This allows us to perceive and react to reality in a totally different way, through a wider lens.

In this discussion, Brandt tells us why meditation is a useful tool to help us reduce feelings of stress and anxiety in our everyday life by changing the way we react to experiences that happen to us.

Brandt also covers how much we should meditate and how long it tends to take for people to see the benefits of their meditation practice.
