Yoga for Emotional Balance: Simple Practices to Help Relieve Anxiety and Depression - Bo Forbes I'm lucky because I actually get to take yoga classes from this teacher - so I was curious about her book. The execution is a little awkward with some repetition and a few odd bits, but the techniques and information that she imparts are very interesting and helpful. She integrates insight meditation with breath and restorative yoga, with the intent of getting the mind and body on board with healing anxiety and depression. I haven't yet attempted the yoga part outside of class, but the breathing is great for calming anxiety. She is an active trainer of yoga teachers, so I hope the adoption of her techniques will expand into yoga land.
