Yoga can definitely help you get rid of your anxiety, but for this you need to understand what exactly anxiety is and how yoga helps you against it.

Anxiety is a form of mental restlessness, which makes you restless physically too. It can be termed as Fight and flight mode in which the person suffering from anxiety is in a kind of preparation for an emergency.


The yoga posture recommended for anxiety is Yoganindra, which is like a kind of sleep or rest. In this, you let lose your body parts through rhythmic breaths, and that puts your mind, along with your body, at rest.

Doing Yoganindra for 15-45 minutes daily, conjures away all the negativity, pessimistic thoughts, and restlessness out of the body and helps you get rid of your anxiety.
