Use Yoga To Prevent Anxiety & Panic Attacks

by Conscious Reminder

Panic attacks and anxiety are normal and quite common body reactions when we are in hard situations.

However, a lot of people struggle when they have to get rid of such reactions. In a lot of cases, such emotions persist, in that way making it difficult to face our everyday life.

However, a lot of people discovered that yoga is quite useful when it comes to panic attacks and anxiety. They utilize particular poses or even asanas which sooth their minds. Those poses also relieve stress or even help us concentrate on everything good and positive.

Here are the three calming yoga poses for treating panic attacks and anxiety:

Bridge Pose

This is a profoundly relaxing pose. However, it even rejuvenates and energizes our body simultaneously. It is a restorative pose which starts with us lying on the floor. Then, we should bend our knees, and after that put our feet’s soles on the floor.

We should have our heels close to our buttocks. Then, we should breathe out, while we are pressing on our feet. We should push our tailbone upwards, and lift our buttocks as much as we can until our thighs become parallel to the floor too.

Extended puppy pose

The second pose is actually the combination between Downward Facing Dog Pose and Child’s Pose.

The pose will not only be an excellent stretch for our spine but what it can also do is calm our mind. We should start the pose on our all fours. Our shoulders have to be above our wrists, while our hips should be above our knees.

Moreover, we should curl our toes under. Then, we should breathe out. After that, we should move our buttocks towards our heels; however, we should keep our arms straight.

We should extend as much as possible without touching our elbows to the floor. Then, we should rest our forehead on the floor. We can hold the pose for 30 seconds.


The last pose is definitely the easiest one on this list. This pose can be said to be a quite calming and restorative pose. We can practice this pose while we read a book.

Moreover, it is a quite powerful pose for healing. We will need a particular wall for this particular pose. We should put a mat or pillow close to a wall.

Moreover, we should lie down our upper body. After that, we should press our buttocks against this wall. We should extend our legs, while they are still against this wall. Our heels are supposed to touch this wall. We should stay in the legs-up-the-wall pose as much as we feel good.

Using yoga poses for panic attacks and anxiety has a lot of benefits. These particular poses will not just relieve our anxiety, but there are a lot of other positive effects that they can have on our mental or physical health.

We should all include them into our everyday routine. However, we can even practice these poses only when we feel stressed and anxious. They are going to work wonders in each possible case.
