Emotional balance is within your reach—when you cultivate the intelligence of both your body and mind. Bo Forbes, a psychologist and yoga teacher, presents an integrative approach to healing anxiety, depression, and chronic stress. In this book, she offers some of her most important teachings and practices, including:

   • restorative yoga sequences designed to balance anxiety and lift depression
   • breath- and body-centered exercises to calm your mind and energize your body
   • simple ways to understand your emotional patterns
   • an overview of the three main obstacles to emotional well-being

Rooted in classical yoga yet supported by psychology and science, the techniques in this book will help you create progressive and lasting change.

“This book is excellent—it ’s timely, clear, and full of tools for creating emotional balance. I particularly love the restorative yoga sequences. They are close to miraculous, and everyone can do them.”—Lilias Folan, PBS host and author of Lilias! Yoga Gets Better with Age

“Forbes has crafted a knowledgeable, realistic guide to addressing the physical and psychological aspects of anxiety and depression, explaining how we can use the body and mind in concert with each other to heal. To her credit, Forbes grounds her ideas and recommendations in sober observations (as both a therapist and a yoga teacher), scientific literature, and a bodhisattva ’s compassion for human suffering. If you ’re struggling with anxiety and depression, this book could point the way to wholeness and well-being.”—Yoga Journal

“Bo Forbes has written more than just a book. She ’s put together a step-by-step prescription that can be tailored to individual needs for the effective relief of the common modern-day maladies of stress, anxiety, and depression.”—Richard Rosen, author of The Yoga of Breath

Yoga for Emotional Balance teaches restorative poses and simple breathing techniques that, when practiced regularly, can put you on the path to feeling better.”—Timothy McCall, MD, author of Yoga as Medicine

“[A] unique synthesis of yoga and psychology . . . this important contribution to the field of integrative emotional healing is informative for teachers and therapists, yet accessible to the lay person.”—Yoga International
