In researching there is a lot of evidence that Yoga is good for the mind and the body! Here are a few:
Yoga for anxiety and depression (Harvard Health)
Yoga: Tap into the many health benefits (Mayo Clinic)
Now this is not to discount or suggest if you have been experiencing feelings of depression for an extended period of time that you should only turn to yoga & exercise of course see you Doctor if other things have not helped and you still feel badly! No shame in that!
I have a Bar Association meeting tonight at 6 pm and they are gonna get 1.5 hours then I am leaving to go to Hot Yoga again tonight. It begins at 8pm I am mad I can't do the 6pm class again but duty calls. Its about balance and while I could skip it I will go and help out and be disciplined enough to elave and do something good for me because I am still feeling a lil something today nothing like yesterday but something is lingering.
