Village Healthy Living Tip – Yoga for Depression


Yoga is as good as medication for depression: Numerous studies show that regular yoga practice has a similar or better effect on mood elevation than SSRI drugs. Some great posture suggestions include Child Pose, Forward Bend, Modified Shoulder Stand (legs up against a wall), Cat/Cow Stretch, Gentle Back Bending or Bridge Poses, and Sitting or Lying Meditation.
