Depression and anxiety affects approximately 25 million adults within the United States each year. Furthermore, the population of adults experiencing some form of mental illness is expected to grow 15% by the year 2020. While there are many traditional therapeutic approaches to treating mental health challenges, evidence-based alternative therapies are gaining credibility. One such form of alternative treatment is yoga therapy. Therefore, the purpose of this project was to create an innovative yoga therapy program for adults to reduce the symptoms associated with anxiety or depression. This project was developed on behalf of the Jewish Federation and Family Services of Orange County. The goals of this yoga therapy program are to increase mind-body connection, decrease symptoms of anxiety or depression, and improve the overall quality of one's life. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not required for the successful completion of this thesis project.
