LifeForce Yoga to Manage Your Mood

Price: $108.00

In this online LifeForce Yoga® workshop, learn the power of an ancient discipline with current scientific findings to help you release what is no longer serving you—without a story attached! Join Amy Weintraub, author of the groundbreaking book Yoga for Depression, to guide you through evidence-based Yoga practices for managing your mood. 

You will leave feeling refreshed, renewed, and excited about incorporating new tools into your home, teaching, or clinical practice to bring balance to the emotional and physical body.

You’ll practice:

  • Pranayama and kriya (breathing techniques) that regulate the emotions
  • Meditations that lift the mood
  • Sankalpa (affirmations)
  • Bhavana (guided visualizations)
  • Mantras (tones) that manage the emotions
  • Mudras (hand gestures) that affect different areas of the chakra system and the body
  • Yoga asana suitable for all levels

This program is accessible for all levels, including beginners. Health professionals and Yoga teachers will learn techniques not regularly taught in Yoga classes to help their clients focus, relax, and have greater access to their feelings. 

Live sessions with Amy Weintraub on Saturday at 10:30 am–12 pm and 2–3:30 pm and on Sunday at 10:30 am–12 pm EDT. 

In addition, you will have access to two recorded Yoga classes with Amy—one for depressed mood and one for anxious mood—and a recorded Yoga Nidra with Amy for mood, as well as the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm, recorded Ashram meditations, and inspiring talk with Sri Swami Satchidananda. 

The main program sessions are live and all sessions are in EDT. The live sessions will be recorded and posted to the Online Programs access page if you are unable to join us live for that session. Recordings* are usually posted within one day and are available to program participants and presenter(s) only.
*You're welcome to turn off your camera if you don't wish your image to be recorded.

You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until November 15.

You will also have access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.

Continuing Education (CE) Opportunities


Fulfills the prerequisite for the LifeForce Yoga Practitioner Training.


Amy was wonderful. I learned so much about meditation and breathing techniques. She taught Yoga that allowed us to meet on the mat in the exact mood we were in. Useful even if you aren’t in the mental health field. — Courtney Little

I have learned a tremendous amount about how Yoga can help manage mood both for myself and for my students. The atmosphere of the training was so inviting and warm, and it was wonderful to embrace the love that was coming from all the “Precious Beings” in the training. I will take away such valuable tools and memories from it all. — Danelle Haymore

LFY blends science and soul. It equips teachers, healers, therapists, and social workers with the knowledge and confidence needed to heal others suffering from mood disorders and trauma. — Lindsey Wrable
