Holly Rossi & Liz Owen - The Yoga Effect-CANCELED

Based on cutting-edge NIH studies, a practical, accessible guide to yoga for reduction in stress, anxiety, and depression, with the goal of balanced emotional health.

The Yoga Effect helps readers overcome the de-energizing effects of depression and move into a state of calm and focus. Based on the program developed through three NIH-funded studies at Boston University School of Medicine, these sequences are medically proven to trigger a physical and mental release of fear and worry. The book offers:

  • A customizable prescription for maintaining centeredness, confidence, and balance
  • Straightforward, accessible sequences, with 40 black & white photos clearly illustrating the poses
  • A short, well-rounded practice that includes breath work and poses with clear explanation of how each sequence contributes to physical, mental, and emotional wellness
  • Differing levels of practice for readers' varying levels of physical abilities

Written with an MD, The Yoga Effect is a proven pathway for cultivating inner strength that can be accessed at any time, offering hope and a solution for anyone looking to transform their mental and emotional health.

 

Following an introduction to the studies and science that supports yoga for emotional healing, a short yoga practice will include a centering meditation, seated yoga poses, and breathwork, suitable for everyone, followed by Q&A.
