“The Light that yoga sheds on Life is something special.  It is transformative.  It does not just change the way we see things; it transforms the person who sees.”  – BKS Iyengar

Join Patricia Walden for Part 2 of Yoga for Depression & Anxiety (recordings available for Part 1).

A key aspect of yoga is cultivating awareness of the dynamic relationship between the body, mind and breath. Through intelligent practice, the practitioner experiences how various asanas can lead to a change of one’s mental/emotional condition. On a more subtle level, one can recognize the breath as a measure of the mind and how a smooth, even breath can steady the consciousness.  In this workshop we will explore three different practice to address anxiety, depression and both.

While they both fall under the general description of “depression,” Chronic Depression and Anxiety-Driven Depression manifest differently emotionally, physiologically and mentally.  Chronic depression often shows up as heaviness in the chest, physical sluggishness and a lethargic mind-state.  Anxiety-driven depression may be experienced as constriction in the diaphragm, scattered energy and an overactive mind.

During the Saturday session of this workshop, we will learn two different asana sequences for these distinct types of depression.  On Sunday, we will explore how pranayama and inversions can provide a support and over time lead to deeper transformation and a sense of overall well-being.
