Try these five yoga poses for depression to help stay calm, happy and grounded this coming winter season.

Downward facing dog

Good ole’ dog pose…truly a cure all. Having the head below the heart makes this pose an inversion, and inversions relax and soothe the nervous system, as well as shift our perspective.


From downdog, shift forward to Plank Pose. I included it here because it is an extremely empowering and grounding pose. Straight arms, straight legs, strong belly lifting towards the spine.
