Yogic Living: How You Can Soothe an Anxious Mind

As yogis, we have the tools to energize, balance and strengthen our nervous and glandular systems so that we can respond to life with consciousness—not react to life with anxiety, fear and worry. Practice of Kundalini Yoga creates an internal biochemistry of mental calm and clarity.

This issue of Yogic Living offers resources to alleviate excessive worry, incessant mental chatter, and persistent anxious thoughts. Meditate to tranquilize the mind, and open into a profound stillness.

 “My request to you is, do not let your calmness go.” 
–Yogi Bhajan
