From the back cover:
More that 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 depression as the symptoms they’re 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 life’s traumas and losses. Weintraub also reflects on her own experience with sever depression, from which she recovered through immersing herself in a daily yoga routine.
Yoga for Depression is the fist yoga book devoted exclusively to the treatment o these debilitating conditions. Amy Weintraub will help readers see their suffering and themselves in a vibrant new light.
Here’s what the experts are saying:
“Yoga for Depression is a godsend: beautifully written, medically accurate, and very practical. I highly recommend it!” — Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause
