Yoga & Ayurveda for Anxiety and Depression Management w/Cassandra McDonough

In this Introduction to Yoga and Ayurveda for Anxiety and Depression Management class, we will enjoy a gentle yoga class that targets the energetic imbalance often implicated in anxiety and certain types of depression, then enjoy a lecture introducing you to the basic principles of Ayurveda.* It comes down to this: Yoga and Ayurveda practices are meant to move energy in specific, purposeful ways. Only certain practices are appropriate for you as a unique individual, and knowing which ones are beneficial for you can help in ways you never thought possible. This is the core of Vedic knowledge, which is thousands of years old and encompasses all meditation, mindfulness, and Ayurvedic knowledge to date.

After a relaxing yoga class, you will be introduced to the basic concepts of Ayurveda. We will discuss the Ayurvedic pathology of mental and emotional imbalance as well as how imbalance can trigger physical disease. In our practice session, you will learn the techniques that can rewire your energetic body towards balance.

In this workshop, you will learn when and why to practice specific therapeutic yoga and meditation practices so that they are appropriate for you specifically. Ayurveda is the science of understanding who needs to practice what posture, breath technique, meditation, lifestyle practice such as neti pot, etc. so that a person has the best chance of achieving the healthy outcome he or she desires.

This series is appropriate for those struggling with anxiety, overwhelm, worry, fear, panic attacks, addiction, depression, melancholy, anger, and more. Please feel free to inquire with Cassandra if you have any questions.
