Yoga Therapy for Fear Summary

Yoga Therapy for Fear: Treating Anxiety, Depression and Rage with the Vagus Nerve and Other Techniques by Beth Spindler

Uncover fearlessness through yoga's methods and disciplines with this guide. This book offers a medically-proven approach to help students and clients uncover their own radiance that is hidden by fear and anxiety.

Yoga offers a readily-accessible system for courageous living, and this book explains how to use simple and quick yoga therapy methods for accessing the vagus nerve, resulting in instant relief from symptoms of fear, including depression, anxiety and rage. It offers asana, pranayama and dhyana exercises that help to eliminate 'worry chatter', directly affecting the amygdala, the part of the brain responsible for fearful thoughts. Addressing many components of fear, the book explains when fear is useful and when it is not, and teaches how to reprogram responses to uncertain circumstances so that they can be dealt with in a healthy way.

Yoga Therapy for Fear Reviews

Beth Spindler does a wonderful job of explaining how fear and anxiety arise, but more importantly how to address them. Her prescriptions range from Ayurvedic principles to simple and accessible yoga practices, movements, breath and awareness. There is a lot that both yoga students and teachers will learn - highly recommended reading! -- Bernie Clark, author of Your Body, Your Yoga and The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga
A treasure chest of information to deepen your understanding and practice of yoga. It is a unique synthesis of ancient practices for health and mental health in modern times. -- Karen L. Arthur, LCSW, BCD, Sivananda Yoga Teacher
Yoga Therapy for Fear deals with many of what I consider the most fascinating and important common-sense aspects of healing: breath, movement, trauma, fear, and how to assist others (and self!) in the unwinding of those internal 'not good enough' knots we all nurture and protect. A veritable cookbook of good ideas, thoughts and techniques. -- Noah Karrasch, Developer, Practitioner and Instructor of CORE Bodywork
Reading about anger, fear, and all the emotions that are present in all of our lives, and seeing yoga therapy techniques that can truly make a difference has been splendid. I have gained so much, and know that this book can make a huge difference to so many. -- Sara Spoerri, Registered Nurse (RN)
