We are seeking to understand the acceptability of an online yoga class for individuals with mood disorders. MoodNetwork members who are 18 years old or over who have experienced depression, mania, or hypomania are invited to participate. About 200 MoodNetwork participants will take part in this study.

Study summary:

Yoga practitioners view yoga as a way to promote good physical and mental health, rather than as a treatment for poor health. This world view may be appealing to patients, especially those concerned with the stigma of conventional mental health treatment, or with the narrow focus on decreasing symptoms (instead of a broader focus on living to one's full potential) that defines much of conventional mental health treatment. Yoga classes are widely available and relatively inexpensive compared to other depression treatments. Yoga can be practiced at home with the aid of video recordings or books. We propose to examine the acceptability and feasibility of online yoga practice for individuals with depression, mania, or hypomania.


Inclusion Criteria: - Fluent in English - Over age 18 - Self-report of having experienced depression, mania, or hypomania in their lifetime Exclusion Criteria: - Any contraindication to exercise (e.g., pregnant, physical injuries or any other reason prohibiting exercise).
