Whatever your age or level of fitness, Yoga for Emotional Health can help you break through the emotional blocks that prevent you from living a happy, healthy life. Yoga postures are beneficial not only for stress reduction and physical well-being—they can be powerful tools for healing harmful emotional states.

In this video, set outdoors in the majestic foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, Lisa Powers teaches you how to use yoga postures and related practices to overcome anger, anxiety, depression, hurt feelings, negativity, doubt and a host of other emotional imbalances. Special emphasis is given to postures designed to awaken the natural love of the heart, an important step in healing, and to give you an experience of the expansive, life-affirming joy of your true self. In addition to the postures, Yoga for Emotional Health teaches you how to work with affirmations, breathing, visualizations, and other techniques long proven to aid in healing.

She states that, "Yoga has helped me to heal very deeply - I realized that I was afraid of dying and afraid of treatment. When I accepted that there were things I couldn't control, I relaxed and was better able to accept my present situation. I began swimming with the current, not against it. At this point a deep peace flooded my being and I was no longer afraid. This was the turning point that opened the door for other solutions to come. Looking back I recognized that the philosophy and practice of yoga was deeply ingrained within me and was a sustaining force."

“I did Yoga for Emotional Health for the first time this week and I felt such harmony, joy, and peace within. Thank you, Lisa Powers.”
