Monday: 30 Minute Vinyasa Flow for Anger Yoga with Lesley Fightmaster

30 Minute Vinyasa Flow for Anger will help to release feelings of anger. Anger is damaging to our bodies and minds. A Russian medical proverb states, "Feelings that have no vent in words, may make other organs weep."  I would add that venting in breath and movement is also important. When we get mad and hold onto the anger our bodies release hormones similar to the "stress response" aka "fight or flight (or freeze)" This hormonal response causes elevated blood pressure, increased heart rate, tense muscles, and could lead to heart attach, stroke, asthma, back pain, migraines and other problems. Those holding on to anger are often depressed, isolated and lonely. Talking about the anger is one way to release it, but because of our "mind/body" connection, we must remember that "the issues are in our tissues," so moving and breathing is another way to release anger.
