Yoga plays a vital role in relieving anxiety. When the mind is under stress, the body releases stress hormones as a defence mechanism, which causes anxiety. And through the practice of yoga, you can reduce the level of stress hormones in the body.
People who struggle with anxiety have a higher breathing rate because their heart beats faster. Through yoga, we teach to concentrate on breathing which slows down the continuous pulsation of the heartbeat.
Meditation, which is a part of yoga, clears our mind and helps it to calm down. It also triggers the release of endorphins and neurotransmitter hormones that elevate the mood and reduce stress levels.
