This CD can be life changing
Amy's book, "Yoga for Depression" changed my life. It lead me to a daily yoga practice. The natural next step was to buy this CD. The breathwork can be done by anyone and can truly change your state of mind and mood. If you or anyone you know suffers from depression, this CD is a great buy.


I read amy Weitraub's book Yoga for Depression aftertaking beginning yoga classes and realizing how yoga lifted my spirits and increased my well being. I discovered the book by chance in a shop. The book really gives an in depth understnding of yoga with posture practices and pranayama breathing. It is both an inspirational and great resource book. I wanted more , so I decided to order the CD "Breathing to Beat the Blues", which I located through Amy's website, Yogafordepression.com and ordered through CD Baby. It is a wonderful addition and can be used and individual short breathing exercises or at the start of postures or all at once for a mediative session. The breathing exercises coincide and describe the ones illustrated in the book. Hope this helps anyone interested.


Love this CD- Complements any yoga practice
I love this CD. The music is beautiful and Amy's lovely voice leads her listeners through breathing exercises that are healing for anyone, whether or not they suffer from depression. She gives suggestions about which tracks to use for anxiety versus depression. My favorite is track 4. This is a good complement to any yoga practice and was wonderful to experiment with after reading her amazing book,Yoga. I have been enthusiastically sharing Amy's work- both CD and book- with my friends.

I love the CD. Breathing is so important.
I love the CD. Breathing is so important. There are somethings on it that I am not familiar with but hope to research and find out. Great addition to my Yoga information.


Excellent for learning about breathing
I've just begun focusing on breathing to help in relaxation and stress reduction. I took breathing for granted as many people do, but I came across Dr. Weill's introductory breathing CD. I wanted to expand my breathing exercises, and this CD is great. It's the next step in developing your breathing for better health.

Amy Weintraub's Breath To Beat The Blues is the most cutting edge approach to Yoga breathwork. All excercises are achievable for the most timid and the courageous. I am so delighted with this work I have given it to my adult children and friends as a the best gift of love. Thanks Amy. Your strong and gentle voice shines through!

Fantastic easy to follow and thorough guideline...changes my mood!
thank you amy for creating an easy to follow method to elevate mood, and understand the workings of pranayama. the exercises are effective. i've been using the cd every morning for the past two weeks, and i feel the benefits. my dog also benefits, as he rolls onto his back and extends his spine by the final relaxation, in true deep relaxation. he is an excellent judge of energy! thank you.

Exceptional in the quality of instruction and benefits of breath
Amy offers a unique perspective on the central core of yoga breath. I have found no other with this focus and the benefits of use are clearly evident after only a month.


Amy Weintraub's CD Breath to Beat the Blues is for everyone!
I've been practicing yoga (and reaping the benefits) for about 5 years. Although I've never suffered from clinical depression I've had my share of bad days and rough times just like anyone else. Amy's book, Yoga For Depression, and her CD, Breath to Beat the Blues, are tremendous uplifting tools suited for anyone, whether you are depressed or on top of the world. I use Amy's CD on a regular bases to keep myself feeling balanced and keep the dark clouds at bay.
