Depression can make everything feel very dark and heavy. Depression is my story and while I find that practicing any form and sequence of yoga can help, I am drawn towards a more heart-opening, solar plexus strengthening and grounded approach particularly. I hope that this practice will bring some light into your body and life again.

Anxiety is a tricky state to find yourself in because its uncomfortable and edgy and it doesn't always shift very easily, which just compounds the situation. I've always found that practicing yoga helps and particularly this grounding sequence that gets me out of my head into my body and connected down to the support of the Earth again.

Not too tight, not too loose, this is a practice to help you stay grounded and sane in the middle of all that is happening, so that you can find a way to dance with your world as it moves and cultivate a sense of steadiness and equanimity. www.beinspiredby.co.uk twitter.com/beinspiredyoga
