In this online workshop, Gary Kraftsow will present some of the Yoga therapy perspective and methods for working with anxiety and depression. We’ll focus on psychological aspects of the human system, explore models of the integrated personality that emerge from Vedic teachings and discover the science of meditation that the ancients developed for reducing suffering and cultivating our higher human potential.

Emotional health is fundamental to the maintenance of OVERALL health. The ancients understood emotion as the complex interaction between our mood (feeling uneasy or overwhelmed), our cognitive processes (worry or obsession), our behavior (addiction or compulsion) and our physiological responses (sleeplessness or digestive distress). As a result, they developed practices to reduce troubling emotional states and cultivate positive ones.

We’ll explore the interaction of these four aspects of emotion and the practices used to transform states of anxiety and depression. Recognizing the direct influence of thought and emotion on biochemistry and knowing that positive states have a deeply restorative impact on the entire system, we are able to develop certain practices to transform negative qualities of mind, promote general well-being and manage the symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Gary will present some Yoga Therapy methods for working with negative emotions, including leading an integrated practice that provides an example of how to transform states of anxiety and depression and promote a deeply restorative impact on the entire system.
