Yoga for Mental Health

If you believe that depression and anxiety aren’t just in your head, you’re in the right place. Are your emotions starting to take a toll on your physical health? Or maybe despite your best efforts to get better, you just don’t feel good. Yoga can help. Yoga is a system of poses, breathing exercises, and meditation. It engages both the mind and body to help you feel good mentally, physically and emotionally.

Styles of Yoga you will learn

Yin Yoga: Slow, calming and meditative form of yoga. It offers the chance to be still and to be present. The body stores emotions and the long holding shapes of Yin encourages you to notice these stored emotions and release them. You can expect a meditative atmosphere, with deep and slow stretches on the floor that target the connective tissues. It reduces tension, encourages mindfulness, and improves flexibility in mind and body.

Yoga Nidra: Also called Yogic sleep is a state of consciousness somewhere between waking and sleeping. It’s induced by guided meditation and is one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain. It’s extremely restorative, some say it’s like taking a four hour nap. Yoga Nidra brings deep relaxation, can aid in physical healing, and helps break unhealthy habits.
