Yoga for Depression & Anxiety

Through the healing power of awareness of our physical body via Svadyaya (self study) and Ishvara-Pranidhana (surrender) we can connect to our own innate healing power through postures, breath and meditation. We create a deep connection and union of mind, body and spirit to balance the energies and enhance our sense of well-being.
