THE HEALING VOICE
MANAGE ANXIETY AND STRESS
We can actively manage anxiety and stress in the moment by using our own voice. We bring ourselves into the present by simply focusing on generating sounds and listening. We improve our breath awareness and control. We can enhance our experience by incorporating positive intentions and creative visualisation. Making sounds is enjoyable and stimulating and invites fresh energy into the body and mind. We can feel cleansed, balanced and calm.
“When the breath is steady or unsteady so is the mind.” Hatha Yoga Pradipika.
