Description

 
By Amy Weintraub
 
More than 25 million Americans are treated with antidepressants each year, at a cost in excess of $50 billion. But the side effects of popular prescription drugs may seem nearly as depressing as the symptoms theyre meant to treat.
 
Veteran yoga instructor Amy Weintraub offers a better solution – one that taps the scientifically proven link between yoga and emotional well-being as well as the beauty of ancient approaches to inner peace.

Addressing a range of diagnoses, including dysthymia, anxiety-based depression, and bipolar disorder, Yoga for Depression reveals why specific postures, breathing practices, and meditation techniques can ease suffering and release lifes traumas and losses.

Weintraub also reflects on her own experience with severe depression, from which she recovered through immersing herself in a daily yoga routine.
