What exactly is Anxiety?
Anxiety is the body and mind’s natural reaction to threat or danger. Commonly referred to as the ‘Fight or Flight’ response, the body releases hormones such as adrenaline, which in turn results in a number of physiological reactions occurring in the body. These emotions help us to survive by ensuring that we are alert and responsive to the danger.
In the appropriate situation, high levels of anxiety – even panic – is considered normal and helpful if it prompts us to escape from danger. Anxiety in performance situations such as interviews and exams can help us perform to the best of our ability. The problems arise when people’s response (anxiety) is out of proportion to the actual danger of the situation, or that it is generated when there is no danger present.
Anxiety is something we all experience from time to time. However, when anxiety becomes excessive or debilitating then it is considered an Anxiety Disorder.
Anxiety was not a word I was every familiar with until I had to learn and educate myself as I was consumed by unpleasant symptoms such as nausea tummy, dry throat, feeling uneasy, sense of panic, excessive worry and inability to sleep on regular basis.
For me personally I had lost the connection between the work – life balance and pushed my body and mind to the limit.
My system was out of balance and I believe that is what anxiety is and if we can first look at our lifestyle and incorporate daily self-care practises we are on the first step to recovery.
One of the most powerful and transformational tools I have experienced to help with Anxiety is Kundalini Yoga & Meditation. The amazing techniques in Kundalini Yoga & Meditation gave me calmness, peace of mind, a full night’s sleep and much more. These exercises is open to everyone of all ages.

Testimonials from the program:
I attended Linda’s 3 month Kundalini Yoga course for anxiety.
Linda is extremely attentive, always asks what exactly your challenges are to best suggest techniques that would help you. She is very good at lifting your spirits in general and motivates you. I always felt better, lighter on my chest and most importantly I knew that if I had any queries I could email her and she would get back to me. She would explain exactly how to do the exercises and how often to do it so that it would best benefit you. The best thing about Linda is that you feel like you are coming to see a friend, she will always welcome you with a smile on her face. She is very supportive and knowledgeable about which exercises would suit you best to see the results. You feel taken care of in that course and for me it was a special place where I knew I could go and feel understood. I would definitely recommend the course to anyone experiencing stress, problems with sleeping or general anxiety.
