Yoga for Mental Health and Depression
May 10 @ 7:00 pm - May 11 @ 3:00 pm
Yoga can be as beneficial to practitioners’ mental health as it is to their physical condition. A focused yoga practice can serve as an effective means to support individuals dealing with the symptoms of depression and anxiety. These conditions can manifest through a variety of debilitating characteristics. In this workshop we will explore a restorative sequence of asanas that facilitate deep relaxation and aid in a good nights sleep. This approach is suited to those suffering from lethargy and depleted energy levels. Additionally we will introduce practices that address agitation and restlessness associated with anxiety. Through gentle flowing sequences and breath work that cultivates a sense of balance, clarity and stability these symptoms can be considerably reduced. This workshop provides teachers and practitioners with the building blocks to construct yoga sequences that are accessible to those experiencing the discomfort and isolation of depression.
