  • Perceived effectiveness for exercise: Major
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I have a VHS tape of Yoga by Kathy Smith and I use it whenever I feel that I CAN and once I DO, I feel much better. NEVER "over-do" tho'. I should be doing it every day or so. The stretching is always good when your muscles haven't been used like they used to be. I used to do Aerobics for 30 mins, 7 days/week. But I was also younger. :) I find that any type of exercise is also good for mental health, helps you sleep better and even have a healthier appetite.
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Treat my mood condition(s): Moderate
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 1 hr Weekly
Advice & Tips: While yoga of any type will differ from teacher to teacher my Ashtanga yoga teacher is wonderful at making it a good workout but easy enough that you dont feel like you were intensely working out. Usually do this for a friday noon session and now and again do the monday noon session. Downward Facing Dog for longer is common in the Ashtanga series so I have developed a lot of strength in my shoulders from this and the Vinyasa classes. A beginner class should be capable for anyone that has normal range of motion and a good heart.
Cost: $50-99 monthly

  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always

  • Perceived effectiveness for Treat my mood condition(s): Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Mood: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for General health: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 1.5 hr Daily
Advice & Tips: It was a huge step for me to start taking Yoga as I have found it increasingly difficult to be around people, but I went for myself and found that it really helped me to just delve into my own space and not worry about the others around me. Hatha is very pleasant because it is enough of an exercise that you notice the health benefits, but it is not so strenuous as to create long lasting physical discomfort. The unexpected benefit is the increase in self control that I am finding in my daily walk and I havent had any lingering thoughts of suicide since starting it.
Cost: $200+ monthly
Side effects: Hyperalgesia
