Yoga is a form of exercise where by we are using our own body weight to strengthen and relax muscles. It increases circulation and stimulates the lymphatic system to detoxify the body (cleaning the blood of waste). Yoga is also great for physical and mental balance. It is a great way to relax and ease the stresses of everyday life. These are some poses that may help with healing depression and anxiety. Child pose, forward bend, legs up the wall, cat pose, backbend, and headstand. ( For beginners it would be best to avoid the headstand unless you are being supervised by a professional). Below is the very relaxing Child Pose – Balasana.
