YOGA FOR DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY DISORDERS
- Amy Weintraub/LifeForce Yoga
- Good video instruction from the Kripalu Center on Nadi Shodhana (alternate-nostril breathing), a balancing pranayama that helps calm the nervous system by activating the parasympathetic (“rest and restore”) response
- I offer Yoga for Anxiety and Depression as a half-day workshop periodically.
