Yoga for Anxiety

Beginner I

Anxiety can be a difficult emotion to let go of. It requires a lot of self-reflection, opening up to vulnerability, an understanding of what anxiety feels like in your body and how to move it through. David spent many years plagued with anxiety and this class brings together everything he has learned through pranayama, meditation, movement and yoga that has helped him move through it. If you would like to go into more depth, check out our Yoga for Chronic Stress, Anxiety and Depression program (for subscribers only).

This is so beautiful David. I have experienced anxiety and depression for a very long while, throughout most of my life. The past two years have been exceptionally difficult, and I have multiple professionals supporting me and working with me to heal. After doing your yoga class, I feel more peaceful and grounded than I have in over a year. A quite a bit loopy, I might add!!! I so appreciate the care and compassion that you exude in this practice. I will share this with me teen sons! Thank you!

I think this class is also good for when one is recovering from an illness and not feeling quite up to physical challenge, and also as preparation for meditation. Thank you!

David,
Thank you for this challenging, thoughtful, heartfelt class. I've been struggling with some sticky feelings and destructive thought patterns, and this class was the first thing in a long time that made me feel like I can open up and move forward. I still have a lot of mental blocks to sort out, but this class gave me a spark of hope and positive forward momentum, which is what I really needed. I can't thank you enough for all the love you put into this site and into all your practices.
Namaste.

Thanks for helping me open and look into those stick emotions. The breathings and the visualisations are so powerful. Your voice and the music are so calming and inviting to openness. Your class is like an island of peace in the middle of a rough sea.
Namaste

I am grateful to hear that other people felt strong emotions during the class. I started to cry during one of your breathing exercises, this was a huge lesson for me in my journey on becoming more self aware. Thank you so much for your class:) and thank you to others in this comment board for your honesty, it really helped me open up to share my experience too.

Much gratitude for this video and for the kind and gentle words. I thought about switching to a different video because I wasn't sure if this is what I was looking for today. Of course it ended up being exactly what I needed. I too cried at the end. The breathing exercises were new to me and I found them really freeing.

This was great... It was only at the very end (during relaxation) where I truly felt the difference. (also felt like you were talking to me!) Kudos to that too

After a rough, anxious night last night, this class was exactly what I needed to start my day with a fresh outlook. Thank you for helping me find my love for myself again.

Dear David, thank you very much for sharing this with us. When I "switched" on my Love button I started cry because was the sensation that I kept blocked in me and I didn't allow to burst. This was really helpful, I have more faith in my strength and I feel more forgiving towards my weaknesses. The image you gave of the body as a vehicle for sensations is perfect to understand and help things flow in and out, as we are channels of energy negative and positive that flow in an eternal balance.
Thank you again,
I hope you could post more videos like this!

I'm glad to see a class using a lot of bandhas and pranayamas: they are very powerful tools, yet often neglected. Thank you to help release those tensions and let love come in :)

Thank you for this class, David. It is a perfect match for after the holidays. I often combine David's classes. A favorite combination is Hatha Yoga for Hip and Hamstrings followed by Shoulders and Neck. It leaves an all over feeling of well being. I find an hour plus is my joy and completely centers me for whatever the day may bring. My Aussie Shepherd patiently waits then wants to be cuddled when I say Namaste! Today I am combining Yoga for Anxiety with Yoga for the Upper back. Namaste!
