Take a Deep Breath, Yoga Helps Ease Depression.

Yoga in the News: Yoga Helps Ease Depression   Evidence keeps stacking up that yoga is a boon for both physical and mentalhealth conditions. Now, a small new study from Boston University finds that taking yoga classes twice a week may help ease depression, thanks in part to deep breathing. The study, which was published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, included 30 people from ages 18 to 64 with clinical depression, who either were not taking antidepressants or had been on a steady dose for at least three months. Half of the participants were assigned to take a 90-minute Iyengar yoga class three times per week, as well as four 30-minute sessions at home each week. People in the other group took two group classes and...

"End Homelessness" with Crisis Charity Support - Yatay

End Homelessness with Yatay and Crisis   It's said often enough, "Charity starts at home." And this can mean a number of things to a number of different people. But the worrying thing, particularly at this cold, bleak and potentially fatal time of the year, is that so many people don't have access to a 'home' let alone food and shelter.  Homelessness is rising and while it would take the actions of the Government to truly end homelessness in the UK, we want to do what we can to keep some of the most vulnerable people safe this time of the year. Quite simply, if you use the code: CRISIS at the checkout, we will donate 15% of the order...

Lucy Steel - Yatay Ambassador - Yatay Yoga UK

Yatay Ambassador:   Lucy Steel I began practicing yoga a couple of years ago and instantly fell in love with the practice. After many years of struggling to find peace with myself, both body and mind, yoga was the foundation of what was to be a turning point in my life. Seeing the difference that yoga had made in my own life, I was inspired to go on and become a teacher to share the peace and love with others. I am currently teaching aerial yoga and a Vinyasa based practice aiming to support my students in calming the mind, body and breath in order to find peace and calm within.
