A growing body of research indicates that yoga may be an effective therapeutic tool in the prevention and treatment of anxiety, depression and other mental health and mood disorders. In YogaFit for Mental Health, we will explore how yoga philosophy, postures, breathing techniques, and meditation practice can enhance mood and overall state of well-being. Through the investigation of ancient yoga practices, in combination with modern self-healing techniques based on neurobiology and psychoneuroimmunology, we learn how to maintain a healthy nervous system, promote a stronger sense of self-awareness, and focus the mind. Additionally, we will learn how to tailor make classes to assist each of our students in facing the unique challenges in their life with more equanimity and confidence, leading to an empowered presence both on and off the mat. In YogaFit for Mental Health, we embrace and honor ourselves exactly where we are and at the same time, create space for growth and transformation.
