People often talk about yoga as a helpful tool for lowering stress, rehabilitating injuries, and leading the way to self-discovery. Practicing yoga can also help people cope in their day-to-day lives by helping them deal with anxiety.

Seated twists of all kinds are powerful anxiety relievers. They teach you to relax even when you find yourself in a tight spot. Once a deep twist has been achieved in the pose of your choice, focus on the breath.

More advanced yoga students can practice Sirsasana (Headstand), which is great for increasing balance and strength and can also stimulate mental clarity.
