Yoga, with a therapist that is trained in neuroscience and therapy, supports your nervous system to come back online in a safe environment. Yoga helps to slowly develop tolerance and capacity to feel again. It offers you the chance to understand your internal processes, the relationship your nervous system has with its environment, with a sense of safety and with a sense of connection. Through Yoga for Depression you become aware of the ‘loop’ and develop curiosity of how it works. With this understanding you are empowered for change.
To break the ‘loop’ of depression, two key components are needed, self-empathy and self-compassion. The practice of yoga offers time and space to develop the skill of empathy and a heart of compassion. With this, you can change your relationship with depression and decrease its impact on your life and wellbeing.
