HOW TO INITIATE YOUR RELAXATION RESPONSE

Jim Freeman - Conviction Yoga

“I can’t say enough good things about this program. I feel a big difference in the way I respond to things that used to send me into a downward spiral ….I know that these methods will be a part of my life for the rest of my life.”

Our very successful program "Overcome Anxiety: A Natural & Holistic Approach" has helped thousands defeat chronic anxiety. Offering it online helps thousands more; revenue generated is used to sustain our programming and support of our Trauma Informed Care initiative outreach programs.

OvercomE anxiety: A natural & holistic approach

A Non-profit dedicated to creating an anxiety free world

 

In order to create a self-sustaining financial model, the Overcome Anxiety Project will offer an online program to those who can afford to donate; the proceeds of which will provide much needed funds to support the delivery of services to those who do not have the financial resources.  This community effort is a social justice movement, with Trauma Informed Care at its core.  The effects of trauma know no boundaries, and extend through every socioeconomic level, ethnicity, gender identity and age. 

THE EXHALATION IS THE GATEWAY TO THE RELAXATION RESPONSE
The exhalation stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system, which initiates your Relaxation Response. Continue for 1-3 minutes or as long as it takes to feel a sense of deep calm.  The time it takes to initiate the relaxation response shortens the more you practice.
Put your head lower than your heart to instantly slow your heart rate. 


Directions: Inhale through your nose gently; exhale through pursed lips, gently, as if making a candle flame flicker, but not blowing it out.  Count your inhale and exhale, make your exhalation at least twice as long as your inhale...as long as possible.  

mission & vision

 We are dedicated to providing help for those seeking relief from chronic anxiety, panic disorder and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) across all sectors of society to improve the quality of life, and optimize health and wellness for all. 

“I have spent tens of thousands of dollars on medications, talk therapy, hospital stays and self-help books over the past decade and nothing has helped me get to the core of my chronic anxiety as your program has. I am with tears in my eyes as I write this-I know that I will be anxiety-free some day in the near future. I haven’t had a panic attack in 4 months, and I don’t fear having one at all-I know “I control my inner peace”
