Yoga Teacher Battles the Big D! How Meditation HELPS

Yoga Teacher Battles the Big D! How Meditation HELPS

It may seem like a paradox to see “depressed” and yoga teacher in the same sentence. The most common image of a yoga teacher is happy and care free, living in perfect bliss…but many yoga teachers actually find yoga as an antidote for their own anxiety and/or depression.  

In August of 1980, my Dad took his own life. He was 33; I was 10. Since his loss, I’ve had my own battle with depression. I am so grateful that Lilas Folan introduced me to yoga on public TV in the 70s.
