Yoga For Anxiety
Anxiety is a natural response to a stressful situation and it arises due to the way our nervous system is designed. Yoga for anxiety tries to help you find ways to bring moments of ease into your day, through exploring a range of techniques such as affirmations, breathing practises and yoga poses.
Honestly, I can't recommend The Yoga Bird enough! I was intially reluctant to try yoga as I had never done it and did not feel very flxible or 'zen'. Vicky is so welcoming, knowledgeable and freindly that all my concerns evaporated and I just got on with enjoying myself.
