About Overcome Anxiety Clinic (OAnx) Yoga Program / Susan Anderson
The OAnx program is a yoga-based, natural and holistic approach to managing and overcoming anxiety. It is designed for those who suffer from, for example, stress, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder and PTSD. The OAnx program may be particularly relevant for someone with OCD since anxiety is typically part of this disorder.  The program includes gentle yoga (no yoga experience required), education, meditation, mindfulness and self-regulation tools and techniques to break the psychological, biochemical and physical cycles of anxiety. 

She will be offering two Overcome Anxiety Clinics™ this fall. You can find more information about them here.
