Join Amy Weintraub, author of the groundbreaking book Yoga for Depression, to guide you through evidence-based Yoga practices for managing your mood.
You will leave feeling refreshed, renewed, and excited about incorporating new tools into your home, teaching, or clinical practice to bring balance to the emotional and physical body.
- Pranayama and kriya (breathing techniques) that regulate the emotions
- Meditations that lift the mood
- Sankalpa (affirmations)
- Bhavana (guided visualizations)
- Mantras (tones) that manage the emotions
- Mudras (hand gestures) that affect different areas of the chakra system and the body

I have learned a tremendous amount about how Yoga can help manage mood both for myself and for my students.
