This essay, which formed part oif my teacher training, presents a discussion around Yoga as an aid for anxiety. In recent times with the prevalence of the COVID-19 virus, and the influx of fear-based media streams, it is now, more than ever, so easy to get caught up in the vibration of anxiety. When the first wave of lockdowns hit South Africa, I committed myself to practicing Yoga and meditating every single day, as a way to cope with the collective tensions and my personal anxieties. This turned out to be one of the most empowering decisions I could have made. While I constantly come across people who blame the lockdowns for their depressions and weight gains, I have not only maintained my healthy body, but also my mind, and I feel empowered by my decision to explore my inner landscapes through Yoga, in a more committed and focused way than I had before. This, of course, does not mean that I do not experience anxiety, but I do have the support of Yoga, as a tool to shift how I am feeling. I will look into some of the key aspects of Yoga and how they can be used as a means to calm anxiety. Yoga as a lifestyle choice, is one that promotes mindfulness and meditation, healthy physical activity through asana practice and pranayama practice; it is a holistic way of life, not comparable to an aerobics class aimed purely at physical exercise.
