Yoga is one of the most wonderful resources that helps us to feel better and physically fit. However, yoga is not only restricted to this; but it is also a process which provides physical as well as emotional well-being. Living healthy these days has become a concern as there are so many external forces that give us stress and hence ultimately make us angry. However, not many people know that anger can be easily controlled with yoga.

Here are some yoga tips which when practiced can help you to control your anger:

Yoga helps us to focus and helps us to think of the main causes of anger and diverts our attention away from it. Yoga also helps to suppress our anger by teaching us the art of controlling the causes and effects of a particular situation in a simultaneous manner. Here are some yoga techniques which will help you to control anger.

Practice the art of Pranayama: Breath deeply and then exhale. Practice this several times and see how it helps you to calm down and control your anger. However, while doing this, imagine a blue light in front of your eyes and relax your shoulders. Breath and then count until three and then exhale through the mouth. Imagine the blue light every time you exhale and feel that it is taking away the anger every time you exhale. This will help you to get rid of anger.


Practice Urdhva Padmasana in Sirsasana: Sit in Sirsasanaand then stretch your thighs high up in the air. Be in this position for about 60 seconds and breathe normally. Now change the position of the Sirsasana and be in this position also for around 60 seconds and then stretch your thighs in the backward direction. Remember, while practicing Urdhva Padmasana in Sirsasana see to it that you don’t change the position of your neck or head while you extend your thighs up in the air.


Practice Mouna: The other way through which you can keep anger at bay is to practice ‘mouna’ or silence. If you are caught in a situation which has made you angry, then it is better to keep quiet and to avoid any speech. Slowly, you will learn to keep quiet in anger situations which ultimately will also reduce your anger.

These were some of the yoga techniques to control anger. Practice these daily and bring down your anger levels in a gradual manner.
