Cautions – Yoga & Anxiety: Yoga & Anxiety – Practices to Consider

  1. Before considering practices that may help with anxiety, please be sure to review the Mental Health Introduction and be familiar with cautions regarding diagnosis and referral.
  2. Particularly with such manifestations as obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic attacks, or PTSD, discuss professional support with your student.
  3. The uniqueness and complexity of each person’s physical state, lifestyle and experiences means they will each experience practices in a particular way that may be different from someone else. Thus, as with all conditions and experiences, there is no “one right way” or universal fix. Teach and encourage students to experiment and observe the effect of various practices. Ensure they own their power to choose what works for them.
