yeah. while doing relaxtion and meditation. or going running is the best of anger management.


I too have noticed that after yoga practice I can become easily angered at even trivial things. This helps helps to solve the mystery!


I really appreciate this comment. I have been really frustrated with myself lately because I feel that I am going to steps forward and one step back. I am amazed how much yoga has helped and recently I got angry over something relatively small. This is such a helpful way to think of anger. I think that with my initial thoughts of yoga, I was pushing away the feelings of anger, rather than accepting and feeling what all those feelings encompass.

Thanks again!


This is very open minded and I like that. A lot of people get angry that they're angry! There's a choice there to step away from those thought and simply think about how you feel, and how you know it will pass. passes and you've survived that moment. Experience the anger but try not to judge it.


I too have old anger coming to the surface, but with new understanding. As a child, I was told not express most of my feelings. I carried this on into adulthood. My anger shows itself as a neck pain. If it goes unaddressed, it becomes a back pain. Why do most people believe that expressed anger only presents itself as rage? It also comes as snipes, jokes, and other negative comments said with a smile. The culprit of these expressions is letting anger fester for too long. Yet, anger can be expressed in more calm, direct, and honest ways, when recognized without judgement.


feeling it, knowing it, opening do you do that...


Great comment.
