When Yoga Makes You Angry

I wrote an article for World Yoga Network on the emotional aspects of a yoga practice and how it isn't always easy and energising. When Yoga Makes You Angry looks at the yoga theory behind the emotions that practice brings up, and gives ways to deal with them.

For me, yoga (by which in this context I mean asana) is a transformative practice and the process can sometimes be difficult and uncomfortable and painful. This can be felt on a physical*, mental and emotional level. So why is this? What are the mechanisms at work? What should we do while it’s happening? Will it ever be over?
