Yoga and Depression

Have you ever felt sad without any reason? Have you ever felt that you have lost it and a feeling of emptiness has gripped you? Well! If yes, then you are actually suffering from depression. But you are not the only person suffering from depression. Around 121 million people across the world suffer from it. In fact, 80% of people who are depressed also suffer from anxiety.

  • Virabhadrasana
  • Savasana
  • Tadasana
  • Uttanasana
  • Sirshasana
  • Veerasana
