Yoga for Your Mood Deck: 52 Ways to Shift Depression and Anxiety
Though it isn’t often discussed, mental health disorders are far more common than you might think. More than 40 million Americans suffer from anxiety, while depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Studies show that medications for these conditions can be less effective than a placebo. So what can you do when your mood feels unmanageable?
With the Yoga for Your Mood Deck, certified yoga therapist Amy Weintraub provides a unique and welcoming approach to fostering inner balance and mental stability. These beautifully illustrated cards offer simple breathing protocols, basic stretches, and traditional hand gestures known as mudras – all of which have been curated to soothe, energize, or integrate your emotional state.
Each card is color coded and numbered for easy access. Feeling blue? You might need to pull a calming blue card to meet your mood first, and then a red one to elevate it. Is anxiety paying an unwelcome visit? Try an energizing red card breathing practice followed by a calming blue card relaxation pose. Green cards offer grounding practices to close your mini yoga session.
Appropriate for in-the-moment interventions or creating your own daily practice, the Yoga for Your Mood Deck brings expert, evidence-based guidance out of the studio and into your hands.
