Anger is a powerful natural emotional release of feelings.  Should the emotion not be healthily released, then it can have a detrimental effect and impact on a person, and other areas such as mental health, lifestyle, relationships etc. Anger can be shown in various ways; it is a very natural response to threats or harms done, usually in the past.

The solution here is to find a way that the anger can be released without harm to oneself or another.  In the practice of yoga we can focus on the practice of ‘Ahimsa’ or non-violence (from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras) and use Yoga to help us deal with the cause of this emotion and also the emotion itself. In order to deal with all the circumstances of anger, we need to be kind (non-violent) with ourselves first.


What is the symptom trying to tell you?

Anger is a symptom of past hurts. This can show itself in a physical, emotional, mental or spiritual way if left undealt with. There can be many reasons of why and how anger shows itself, however should you feel anger at any point, it is wise to release it rather to ignore it or ‘stuff it’ away inside you. That doesn’t mean going into a ‘rage’ when an event occurs, it simply means dealing with your anger in a different way, such as taking some deep breaths, doing some yoga postures that help release it, talking about it, or simply being more mindful and acknowledging that this is the way you feel right now. Pretending you aren’t angry (to yourself!) only puts the emotion on hold for a later date…and by then it might have increased in size. So better to release it by using some yoga techniques!
