A Note from Tracy: Research has proven that yoga is an effective tool to help overcome depression, according to this article recently published in Harvard Health Publishing. Effective yoga practices to combat depression are about more than movement, however. Breath and meditation are equally, if not more, important. In this series of articles, I will share six practices (some movement, some breath, and some meditation) from my series Overcoming Depression with Yoga. Enjoy!
If you ever experience mental fog or have difficulty focusing, the 15-minute movement practice below can help. It’s great for preparing the brain to study, teaching your mind to focus, or simply clearing away the doldrums. Enjoy!
Practice in good health! Next week I’ll share a breath practice that further integrates the right and left hemispheres of the brain. If you’re interested in learning more about my private yoga therapy practice and yoga teacher training, visit my website at http://svanayogaseattle.com/
