Hi! My name is Lauren, and I’m here to share how yoga and breath work has been a cornerstone in helping me overcome a generalized anxiety disorder. It took me 16 years to begin to figure out what works for me, but it works , and I wanted to share it with other people!
On this blog, you’ll find more information on:
-the relationship between trauma and the subsequent development of anxiety
– tips on managing anxiety related to trauma
-breathing techniques, why yoga is helpful, and other tools and information I’ve found that have been pertinent in my healing journey. Please note what I said there: journey. Healing isn’t easy. There are layers, and it takes a lot of work. I’m still far from done. What I’m attempting to do here, essentially, is take all my years of shifting through information and condensing what has been beneficial throughout my own process into one location, in the hopes it can serve someone who finds themselves in need of it.
I’m giving you a starting point if you don’t know where to begin. I hope it serves you somehow. Please know that I’m not an expert, and I’m not even what I would considered “healed completely”. I have a lifetime of work ahead of me. Take that which resonates with you here, and leave the rest. Everyone is unique in what works for them. I’m simply sharing a few starting points if you’re feeling overwhelmed and don’t know where to start. (And where do you start? You start where you are)
Sending you love,
