YOGA FOR DEPRESSION & ANXIETY STUDY

Our new study on Yoga for Depression and Anxiety has been published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, March, 2017, with impressive results. In a group of beginning yoga practitioners diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder, practicing 90 minutes of yoga twice a week, along with some home practice, significantly decreased symptoms of depression and anxiety as measured by MRI technology and Beck's Depression Inventory scale.
