Panic attacks or high levels of fear rising in our systems are not pleasant, let alone comfortable. You want to get out quickly, right? So it needs to be a simple and quick fix – like this one. I am using TCTSY* techniques in order not to trigger even more fear or trauma. Moving your arms and focusing on the muscle activation is one way to help you get back into the body and ground into the present moment.
If you’re not dealing with acute panic, PTSD or active trauma in your system, meditation and Pranayama might be beneficial as well.
Here are some of our breath tutorials and our latest guided meditation, as well as a guided laying on the floor in order to find safety:
