Anyone who has suffered from depression understands how deep, abiding sadness can infiltrate and affect every aspect of our being. As our feelings and other symptoms of depression persist, we have an increasingly difficult time imagining a life in which we break free from their spell and avoid “becoming” them. Yoga teaches us that we are not feelings or our symptoms but live in multidimensional relationship with them.
This asana practice will include supported back bends to open the chest and lungs and supine poses to quiet and calm the mind. We will use pranayama to calm the mind and body and meditation for self-study, which offers the possibility of understanding and changing the attitudes and behaviors which may cause unhappiness.
