SAD this winter? Give Yoga a Try to Lighten Your Mood!

According to psychologytoday.com, "Seasonal Affective Disorder is estimated to affect 10 million Americans. Another 10 percent to 20 percent may have mild SAD and SAD is four times more common in women than in men."

If you find yourself feeling more tired, sluggish or down this winter, you're not alone. The good news is that more and more research is coming out with ways to help cope with Seasonal Affective Disorder and one of those combatants is yoga!!

"Yoga may work by affecting the level of serotonin in the body, says Timothy McCall, MD, Yoga Journal's medical editor and the author of Yoga as Medicine. In his book he cites research showing that people suffering from depression who did yoga experienced an increase in serotonin and became more sociable(yogajournal.com)."

"However yoga affects the body, it also teaches you about the workings of your "monkey mind." In particular, you learn how to handle dark feelings that might otherwise overwhelm you. "Learning to witness your feelings without getting wrapped up in negativity is a big part of yoga," says Lee. "And yogic mantras can help people focus on the positive. Both are important." Hahn concurs. "Yoga connects my mind and body," she says. "It gets the two working together and makes it easier for me to control a lot of the physical manifestations of my depression (Yogajournal.com)."

Let the Learning Continue This Winter!

We did get some beautiful snow this past weekend! And since a few people have asked, we wanted to send out a friendly reminder that we are not offering horsemanship or horse yoga lessons during the winter. 

However we’re still happy to delve into how to build a mutual respect and trust-based relationship with your horse during these colder months so by spring time you will be ready to work towards a heart-centered relationship with your horse!

Learning never stops and why not take time this winter to really explore what it means to recognize your horse’s free will and autonomy! If this sounds like something you might be interested in learning more about, email Angela at: SolarisStableAndYoga@gmail.com
