Yoga for Depression as Alzheimer’s Prevention Webinar
Research shows a strong relationship between depression and Alzheimer’s disease. In fact, a history of major depression is a risk factor for later development of Alzheimer’s disease. And those with dementia often develop symptoms of both depression and anxiety.
Luckily, yoga has been proven to be an effective lifestyle modality to manage depressive symptoms. Amy Weintraub, MFA, C-IAYT will talk about ways in which yoga can protect our brains and shift our moods. We will practice a number of brief and accessible yoga mood-shifters from Amy’s new card deck, Yoga for Your Mood, just released from Sounds True. No mat or previous experience required!
Please join us on Tuesday, September 28th for this outstanding Webinar on Yoga for Depression as Alzheimer’s Prevention. It will be recorded and sent out after.
