Yoga for Depression and Anxiety Live Virtual Workshop
November 5, 2021 - November 7, 2021
Join Amy LIVE ONLINE for the Yoga for Depression and Anxiety module of the Inner Peace Yoga Therapy training program, with the individual weekend rate.
For thousands of years, yogis have understood what current research in neurobiology and clinical observations are demonstrating — that, working with a body and breath-based practice, we can manage our moods. LifeForce Yoga interweaves the power of this ancient discipline with current scientific findings to help you release what’s no longer serving you. No previous experience necessary- no pretzel poses. This training incorporates breathing, postures, meditation techniques and other experiential yogic tools for mood management in order to work therapeutically with individuals and groups.
Explore evidence-based yogic tools, designed to
- Energize and elevate depressed moods
- Relax and calm anxiety
- Work with the chakra system
- Bring balance to your emotional body
