Gentle Movement Practice to Overcome the Blues

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!


Next week I’ll share a simple Full Torso Breathing practice to help build energy and calm the mind.

Enjoy, and if you’re interested in learning more about my private yoga therapy practice and yoga teacher training, visit my website at

    Dear Tracy, thank you so much for sharing this valuable (simple movements and practice with me)
    I am so grateful as I use it for my daily classes.
    Thank you from my heart.
    You’re the best, wish I could effort you for private class on DDD, I was diagnosed with Degenerative disk disease. L5, and S1. I am working on therapy and all I learned with you and the wonderful classes with Sarah at our Y here in Mukilteo. Please take care and I am seriously considering taking your advanced training. Family issues (expenses) is what is putting a hold for now. But all is possible. so I hope I can do it.

      Thanks, Bea. Sorry you’re dealing with back issues. I hope you can attend the training, as it won’t be the same without your smiling face!
