How to Treat Anxiety Through the Koshas in Yoga Therapy

yoga therapy for anxiety

Welcome to episode 81 of The Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy and Meditation podcast.

Anxiety is the most common complaint we work with as yoga therapists! Therefore, this area of mental health is crucial for us to understand and help our students and clients with.

In this epsiode, Brand discusses anxiety and how it can arise in different ways through each of the 5 koshas. Learn about the two different types of anxiety people experience and different tools and techniques that can be used for each as a yoga therapist.

Brandt also goes over an example of a yoga practice for anxiety that has been very effective for his clients.

Here is the link to the grounding Om Aim Hreem Kreem Namaha meditation for anxiety mentioned in the video.
