I am having an anxiety disorder. I undergo fear, loud heart beats, headache, giddiness etc. I have started doing yoga. I have been doing pranayam(anulom vilom) for 15 minutes and meditation (20 mins) and om recitation (5 mins)from last 10 days. I am benefited a bit. Around how much time will it take for yoga to cure me completely? 1 month?
I am glad to know that doing breathing exercises and meditation has helped you. I will suggest carry on for at least a month. Nobody can give a fixed time for any cure by yoga. Your progress in yoga practice will depend on time you can devote and your will power.
Your health changes dynamically, it will either improve or deteriorate depending on the way you exercise, eat; your stress levels, the environment and your sleeping habits etc. Daily yoga exercise can add up to your efforts to stay healthy throughout your life.
~ If you stop yoga after getting cured, stress of modern life and unhealthy eating practices can have negative effect on your health.
~ Even if you have a busy life, spare at least 30 minutes for breathing and meditation. Or practice on alternate days and have extended practice on weekends.
~ Please note that it is advisable to carry on with your practice and try to improve it further by adding more stretching poses or suryanamaskar asanas(sun salutations). You can also increase the duration of shavasana at the end of your practice and try yoga nidra once or twice a week.
~ Plan a yoga sequence for 30 to 40 minutes per day. If will be preferable if you can find a yoga teacher to locally to guide you better.
Hope this helps
