Yoga for Depression

Research indicates that yoga can provide significant relief from depression by using the breath as a gateway to awareness, in combination with movement of the body, allowing us to experience the present moment.

Yoga helps raise levels of oxytocin, a hormone that reduces blood pressure and cortisol levels and relaxes the whole body. These classes prompt how to feel a connection between the body, breath and mood and ways to manage or steady the fluctuations of the mind.
