Yoga for Anxiety & Depression


This class is taught by:

Sharon McGuire

Sharon McGuire, RYT-200, completed her yoga teacher training with Nourishing Heart Yoga in Bloomington.


With an extensive background in training and development, Sharon is dedicated to facilitating opportunities for students at all levels to experience personal “ah-ha!” moments and grow in their yoga practice.


Combining gentle yoga and meditation, Sharon creates a loving, compassionate environment that encourages students to accept who they are and find inner peace.


By guiding students to move mindfully with the breath, she creates space for
students to slow down, relax, and focus on being present in the moment, ultimately providing
them with tools to live mindfully in everyday life.

Learn how yoga and mindfulness can be integrated into daily life to create and maintain positive mental health without being held back by stress anxiety and depression.

Anxiety and depression, which can be experienced independently of each other or at the same time, require subtly different approaches.


Depression can express itself in different ways, and is often accompanied by anxiety. Each person responds differently to the emotional burden of depression. Students will learn fundamental principles that will help you find natural relief and support the nervous system. 


Anxiety can be met at its level of tension with yoga poses and breathing techniques that help drain the body of tension and allow for deep restoration. Poses have been selected for their specific physiological and psychological benefits to re-balance and retrain the nervous system to better manage stress.
