Since the pandemic, rates of depression and anxiety have skyrocketed (statistics for depression had been 1 in 10 people; it’s now affecting 1 in 4 people). What practices can we offer our students and ourselves to establish emotional balance, self-regulation, and resiliency, no matter what we see in the news?
Amy Weintraub experienced firsthand the relief that yoga can provide from mood disorders such as depression and anxiety and has spent her career helping others improve their mental with yoga. She offers accessible practices to everyone through her LifeForce Yoga® Healing Institute.
Amy will give you the why, the how, and the practices to make a difference. Not only will these practices shift your mood, but they may change your life as they did for Amy and the thousands of students she has trained in LifeForce Yoga.
We’ll be meeting the mood and shifting it into balance with yoga breathing, mudras, visual imagery, yoga meditations, mantras, and accessible movements. Many of these practices are not taught in regular yoga classes.
Recommended props: mat, chair, blocks, cushion.
