Yoga for Winter Blues
Ever heard of SAD? Seasonal Affective Disorder. Sid Kirchheimer of WebMD says:
“With SAD, the lack of sunlight causes the brain to work overtime producing melatonin, the hormone that regulates your body clock and sleep patterns and a hormone that has been linked to depression. That’s why all things considered, the farther north from the equator you live, the greater the risk you’ll have some degree of winter depression. Only about 1% of Florida residents have some winter-specific discomfort or depression, compared to about half of those living in uppermost parts of the U.S. or in southern Canada.
Yoga is a wonderful tool to help us with this. Join me for poses, breathwork and meditation to help get us through the Winter months.
