Q:

Which pranayama cure anxiety?

Hi everyone,

I have been suffering from anxiety for quite some time now and I am looking for some natural remedies to help alleviate it. I have heard that pranayama can be helpful in reducing anxiety. However, I am not sure which type of pranayama I should practice. Can anyone recommend a specific pranayama that has proven to be effective in curing anxiety?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi there,

I've had a lot of success with practicing the "Kapalbhati" pranayama for reducing my anxiety levels. This breathing technique involves short, forceful exhales through the nose and has been shown to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which helps to calm the body and mind.

I typically practice this pranayama for around five minutes each day and have found that it helps me to feel more centered and grounded. However, it's important to note that everyone is different, so what works for me may not work for everyone.

I would recommend speaking with a certified yoga instructor and/or healthcare professional before beginning any new pranayama practice, particularly if you have any pre-existing health conditions.

Best of luck in finding a solution that works for you!

Hello everyone,

I have also suffered from anxiety in the past and I have found that "Sheetali Pranayama" has been very helpful in reducing my anxiety levels. This pranayama involves breathing in through a curled tongue, forcing the air to cool down the body and calm the nervous system.

To practice Sheetali Pranayama, curl your tongue and draw the air in through it slowly, keeping the mouth gently open. You can exhale through the nose or the mouth. Repeat for 10-15 breaths.

I have found that this technique can be particularly helpful during the summer months when the body may be feeling overheated, as well as during times of high stress.

Again, I recommend consulting with a certified yoga instructor and/or healthcare professional before beginning any new pranayama practice. What works for one person may not work for another, and it's important to find the right fit for your body and mind.

Good luck on your journey towards reducing anxiety!

Hello,

I personally suffer from anxiety attacks, and I have found that "Nadi Shodhana" (alternate nostril breathing) has been very effective in reducing my anxiety. This breathing technique involves inhaling through one nostril, holding your breath, and then exhaling through the other nostril, and then repeating the process on the other side. It helps balance the flow of energy in your body, and can create a deep sense of relaxation.

I typically practice this pranayama twice a day for ten minutes, and it has worked wonders for me. It's a simple yet powerful technique that anyone can practice at any time.

However, I would still suggest consulting with a healthcare professional before starting any new pranayama practice as it may not be suitable for everyone, especially those who are pregnant or who have heart or lung issues.

I hope this helps!

Hi there,

I also suffer from anxiety, and I have found that "Bhramari Pranayama" has been very helpful in reducing my anxiety levels. This pranayama is also known as the "bee breath" because it involves making a humming sound while exhaling, which can create a soothing effect in the body and calm the mind.

To practice Bhramari Pranayama, simply inhale deeply, and then exhale while making a soft humming sound, almost like a bee. Repeat this process for 5 to 10 minutes daily.

I have found that incorporating this into my morning routine has been particularly helpful for me in starting my day with a more calm and centered mindset.

As with any pranayama or exercise, it's important to listen to your body and not push yourself too hard. If you experience any discomfort or pain, stop immediately and seek medical advice.

All the best in finding what works for you!
