LifeForce Yoga® was developed by Amy Weintraub, author of Yoga for Depression and the founder and director of the LifeForce Yoga Healing Institute as a means of working with mood management using yogic tools. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, more than 20 million Americans suffer from a mood disorder each year – 14.9 million suffer from depression and 40 million report anxiety. Many have success with talk therapy and/or with pharmaceuticals. Some people are looking for different ways to treat their mood issues and finding great success with yoga. As a result of her own healing practices and spiritual searches Allie now works to share the process of embodying the wisdom of yoga traditions and other contemplative practices with her clients and students. She is a faculty member with the LifeForce Yoga Healing Institute, http://www.yogafordepression.com
