LifeForce Yoga to Manage Your Mood

For all levels, including yoga and health professionals.

How can you commit to happiness in the face of life’s challenges? This program helps you cultivate compassionate inner space, so you can embrace the world with a peaceful mind and a courageous heart.

Learn to strip away the obstacles that keep you from knowing the joy that is your birthright and develop a practice that includes breathing exercises, easy postures, and guided meditations. This program also covers other evidence-based yogic tools, designed to

  • Energize and elevate depressed moods
  • Relax and calm anxiety
  • Work with the chakra system
  • Bring balance to your emotional body.

LifeForce Yoga interweaves ancient disciplines with current scientific findings to help you release what no longer serves you and become the agent of your own healing.
