Kriya for anxiety

A.  Sit in easy pose with the hands in prayer pose in front of the chest.  Then move the hands downward with fingers pointing away from the body and then back up again to the original position.  This is a fast, shaking motion.  Long deep breathing.                  3 Minutes
B.  Still sitting in easy pose, extend the arms forward, bending the arms at the elbow.  Keep the elbows in close to the body, upper arms extend somewhat beyond the shoulder, palms are open and facing the body.  Begin bringing the hands in toward the body and then back out again.  The movement is about 12 inches.  Form a circle with the mouth and breathe in and out rapidly through the mouth.     3 Minutes
C.  This is the same as part A., only breathe rapidly in an out through the mouth as in B.   3 Minutes
