In today’s culture of pharmaceutical relief, antidepressants are the standard for easing depression and
for many they can be a lifesaver.
A lifestyle change can also work wonders and this should include the practice of yoga.
Many yoga students have found relief from depression by consistently and patiently practicing Hatha yoga, pranayama (breathing) and meditation. Studies have also shown that by following a yoga practice you can significantly reduce stress and help to alleviate both anxiety and depression.
