Depression, anxiety, and other stress-related disorders may be the most common mental health issues in the country, but the energizing news is how powerful mind-body techniques can be in their long-term resolution.
As part of our new webcast series on how to combine these mind-body techniques with talk therapy, I had a conversation with Amy Weintraub—recognized leader in the field of yoga and mental health. In this quick video demonstration, Amy shows how a simple yoga breathing technique can help anxious, revved-up clients move quickly into a regulated state more conducive to therapy.
It’s a 3-minute mini-tutorial on how yoga breathing calms the stress response system and a great demonstration of how easy it is to integrate a beneficial mind-body approach into your existing practice.

Amy Weintraub is the author of Yoga for Depression and Yoga Skills for Therapists. She’s a leader in integrating yoga practices and mental health care. This clip is taken from her session in our mind-body video course:
