Hi everyone, welcome to my channel. Thank you for joining me in today’s 25 minute yoga class for stress reduction. If you’ve clicked on this video, odds are you’re going through a period of stress and overwhelm. If your mental health is suffering, I would encourage you to take some time to do this practice and hopefully it will help you move through those emotions and come back to a state of equilibrium in your nervous system.

I’ve struggled with anxiety my entire life and I find that the most beneficial way to use yoga during stressful episodes or panic attacks is by both activating and relaxing. We will do some dynamic breathing exercises to clear our minds and move our bodies to get the energy flowing before settling into some relaxation poses and slowing down.

This is a suitable class for all experience levels and no props are required.


  1. Angie Fuentes

    Rhis was such a great practice! I feel so relived from my week and it was nice to take a moment to pause and really destress from everything! Thank you!

  2. Michelle Koury

    Thank you. Just what I needed.🙏🏻

  3. Fortune.Magsadia

    Perfect timing 🩷🙏 thank youuuuuu!

  4. Deborah O’Flanagan

    What timing … my dog was accosted by another dog while out for a walk this morning, after an emergency visit to the vet, she is thankfully largely unhurt. On the other hand, I was so rattled, unable to get the image out of my head all day and so on edge … but I had seen the email from you this morning with this practice and so decided this afternoon to do it. The first 15 minutes I kept saying, ‘I don’t feel up to this’, ‘I can’t concentrate on this right now’, and then? the magic happened 15 minutes in. I started to relax and feel real relief and focus. The calm I felt was priceless after the morning I had. Thank you Kassandra!

  31. Rachel Lee Walsh

    This video is a good example of why I only watch you for yoga and why I got a membership to your app. Your words and approach are so gentle and honest. I’ve never heard anyone talk about how meditation might not work when we are anxious or that we might need to clear the cobwebs before meditating. This practice was perfect for my anxiety this morning. Really realky helped to do this so i could get on with my morning. It’s now saved as one of my favorites.

    • Kassandra

      Thank you for those kind words
