Quieting the mind Kundalini yoga can reduce anxiety symptoms, according to new research from NYU Grossman School of Medicine


esearchers at NYU Grossman School of Medicine have found Kundalini yoga is effective in relieving the effects of generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) in adults, following a recent clinical trial.

Simon said: “It seems there are exacerbations of anxiety as a result of COVID-19 – people have less access to normal structure and their usual rewarding activities, plus, they may also be coping with economic challenges, illness and grief.” The research indicates Kundalini yoga could play an important role in dealing
