About the course


It is very hard to explain to people who have never known serious depression or anxiety the sheer continuous intensity of it. There is no off switch.

Depression is a serious condition that affects millions of people around the world. It can be debilitating, causing sufferers to feel sad, hopeless and lethargic. Depression can also lead to suicidal thoughts and behaviours.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), by 2030 depression will be the leading cause of disability worldwide. It is the predominant mental health problem, followed by anxiety, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder – as well as being the 10th leading cause of early death.

What exactly is depression and what are the signs of depression ?

  • Persistent low mood and sadness.
  • Feelings of hopelessness.
  • Suicide ideation and thoughts of self-harm.
  • Lack of motivation, tiredness and loss of interest in life.
  • Weight gain or weight loss.
  • Loss of pleasure in activities that were previously enjoyed.

Sadness is an inevitable part of life and we all face times where we find it difficult to take pleasure in daily activities. The experience of depression, however, goes beyond normal fluctuations in mood and can negatively impact an individual’s personal, social and professional life.

Anyone who has been diagnosed with depression will meet diagnostic criteria, sharing commonalities with others who suffer with this mental health issue. But despite this, it is still a deeply personal illness, and yoga can be part of a personalized response which takes into account both mind and body.

An estimated 10 – 30% of people diagnosed with depression are treatment resistant, defined in the NICE guidelines as people who have not responded to courses of two different antidepressants. In cases such as these, yoga therapy can step into the gap and provide support while an appropriate pharmaceutical response is found.

In the field of yoga, depression is completely CURABLE. 

Another benefit of yoga is that it offers a form of exercise to people living with or prone to depression. The efficacy of exercise for decreasing symptoms of depression has been well established and given that depression is known to drain motivation, yoga can offer a gentle and enjoyable way to begin an exercise regime. It is a non-judgemental practice that is beneficial to people whatever their “skill” level, and yoga classes are welcoming spaces that can provide a supportive sense of community.

This is important for people living with depression, as feelings of worthlessness and self-blame might be a barrier to physical activity. Another barrier is the experience of depression itself. When someone is suffering from a severe depressive episode they may find it hard to even leave their bed, wash or eat, so it would be unrealistic to expect them to attend a yoga class. It is therefore important to suggest a yoga intervention at an appropriate time, where the practice will aid in recovery and help to prevent a major resurgence of symptoms.

And hence, we have this major Online Masterclasses to help everyone out to fight depression and live a better life, where you don’t have to socialize unless you want to.
