Hi Everyone,
 
I'm joining a yoga class from next monday.  I was hoping doing yoga might help with my anxiety and depression.  I will post and let you know how it goes.
 
My boyfriend thinks I should start kickboxing to rid me of my pent up anger thats inside me. My childhood has caused all my anxiety/depression problems and I cant seem to vent my anger.  Maybe kickboxing will help!!

Hi Victoria, Yoga may be a very good thing for you.  Not only for physical health by emotional health as well.  I can see where you bf is coming from with the kickboxing and anger related issues but Yoga teaches you how to center yourself and focus your energy, which may by more constructive in the end.

BUT.... if you still feel that tension then give the kickboxing a try and see how you feel.  I don’t do Yoga as I have MS and balance is a real issue for me.  I also have some anger issues from childhood hurts and what I usually do is strap on my iPod and walk...I normally do 5 miles a day and this has helped quite a bit alleviate some of that anxiety and anger.

I love my iPod too...I have all kinds of music in there from meditation for those really bad days...to rock when I am in a mood, an pop which I always like to listen too...weird that way I guess.

I have always been pretty fit...ran track in high school, volleyball and was on cheer team even though I graduated in 92...eons ago...  tongue  .  My physical illnesses have slowed me down a bit but I try to stay active as can be

Hi Victoria,

I have done both kickboxing and yoga and for me yoga more helpful. My anxiety actually helped me excel in kickboxing. I was already on the edge of my toes and if you can put anger and anxiety behind intense bursts you'll do well. Kickboxing is also great if for beating up 'demons' and venting anger.

On the other hand, yoga is slow. A 'channel your mind' and 'breathe it all out' thing. I was more aware of my body and my mind. And learning to breathe things out was helpful for me. Kickboxing left me pumped, while yoga left me peaceful.

I'd put my money in yoga.

Good Luck

sometimes violence can ease ur anger..so boxing can help you gush out ur frustration and depression!! lol, but I counsel u on yoga. it will help you to regulate ur high blood pressure and then you might feel much more better.
