Cure anxiety through yoga. yes! my friends, I am talking about the trees pose which helps to control and cure anxiety.
When I was a kid I used to watch 1 tv show, it was a mythological tv show in which 1 mighty king does Austerity of god for fulfilling his wishes,
He does Austerity, not in a normal pose meant not just by sitting on the ground.
he used to practice in some strange pose for Austerity -Tapasya(it is a process in which the person continuously chant specific mantra or words and does not change his place or pose until and unless he got his wish).
I used to see him with great attention because the way he (The king) used to stand on his 1 leg and chant some words all day and night, I can’t explain his pose in words,
I will show you 1 picture above so you will get the idea what I mean to say, but the way he used to stand it was looking like a tree.
I asked my mom why he is standing in such a difficult pose, she said it is for showing dedication towards God.
after a few years, I saw the same pose when went for the morning walk, one woman was trying to stand in the same pose.
I asked her what kind of exercise are you doing ? she said it is vrikshasana (tree poses) and I practice it daily, oh! ok, thank you.
I gave thanks to her and went back home.
When you practice Yoga poses you stretch your body and muscles and release the stress in the particular muscle.
Same way, When you Practise Pranayama you try to control your mind through proper and synchronized breathing process.
And that is why you can cure anxiety through yoga.
Another important reason Yoga helps to cure anxiety and stress is.
When you do any yoga. your body releases some hormones like endorphins, Serotonin which also called happy hormones.
These hormones keep you stress-free and happy.
Ultimately, If you are happy there is no chance of anxiety or stress.
Many people take some antidepressants and medication to control anxiety and stress but some medicines have its own side effects.
But yoga does not harm you in any way if you practice it properly.
I tried this tree poses but I couldn’t stand even for 1 minute.
after the practice of 8 days, I could hold myself for 3-4 minutes or less than 3 minutes ( didn’t notice).
but after I practice it I found that I can hold my mind on one task at one time, which was very hard for me.
I find something interesting and I practice it daily.
I decided to get more information about this pose and got some very useful information about tree pose (The vrikshasana).
