I am a yoga teacher and recently began teaching a class for students with depression and/or anxiety. I originally started to read Weintraub's "Yoga for Depression," which is aimed more at individuals who are seeking out help, but found it a little bit too theoretical for my taste. As soon as I started reading "Yoga Skills for Therapists," I knew I'd found the right text: it gives great scientific research and philosophical foundations of such practices as pranayama, sound, and mudra, while also giving tons of concrete exercises you can plan into your yoga class (or therapy session). She also distinguishes between what practices are best for what condition, and gives advice on how to build trust and a solid foundation with your students/clients using said practices.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who works with depressed and/or anxious clients and is looking for practical skills to use and the reasons to use them. It's also taken my own personal yoga practice to a deeper place, which I think helps me connect more with my students.

As practitioner of Life Force Yoga, I found this book to be a fantastic summary of the practices. I bought it first on Kindle, but I wanted it in my hands so that I could write in the margins and take notes as I practiced and learned more. Thanks Amy for bringing so many of your insights alive!

Wonderful reading about yoga and managing one's mood. Taking different poses to change the way you feel. I recommend this book for anyone that uses yoga for everyday life.

Awesome book! Very easy to read and understand. Helpful as a clinician even if you've never had any training in breathing techniques before. Highly recommend!

I bought this book while working on a presentation for my master's program. It was very informative and practical for anyone, but especially those in the helping field.
