Stress, fear, anxiety – these moments of life are impossible to quantify. Anxiety about your parents’ reaction to a board exam or a book of progress, or the discomfort before a job interview – we’ve all experienced this moment in life. A little fear is natural, in fact, like salt in a meal, this fear is essential in life, which keeps us disciplined, focused and dynamic. The problem begins when this fear lasts for a long time and it begins to interfere with everyday life. It then turns into an anxiety disorder, which means intense anxiety or fear of the unknown. In such cases, treatment is needed and yoga is very helpful in this.
It is important to know that yoga is not the only treatment option, but that yoga should be used to supplement proper treatment with the advice of doctors or experts. The doctor will guide you better on the condition of the illness and help you understand the type of anxiety disorder. Regular yoga practice helps you to stay calm and stress-free in your daily life and gives you the strength to cope with future events. The yoga instruments, which include a wide range of postures such as asana, pranayama, meditation and ancient yoga philosophy can be used to help many unhealthy patients and to bring life to new poses and strengths. Make physical movements with relaxation and relax your mind
These yoga postures help yoga to achieve a happy mind and a healthy body. Asanas help to relieve stress and negativity through the body and mind.

Knowledge of ancient yoga, which mentions some of the commonest but most profound yoga principles (yams and rules), and applying it in daily life, can be the secret to a happy and healthy life. “Satisfaction”, for example, teaches the importance of contentment. The “indifference” principle helps us to overcome greed or the desire to gain more, which can be a cause for stress and anxiety. Also, “defilement” speaks of the principle of the cleanliness of body and mind. This rule is especially useful when you are worried about an infectious disease.
