Soul to Sole Yoga for Bipolar Disorder

About Us

Yoga Therapy for Bipolar Disorder

Soul to Sole Yoga for Bipolar Disorder is a unique therapeutic blend of tailored yoga sequences, guided meditation, and dialectical behavioral skills integration geared towards allowing individuals on the bipolar spectrum to regain control of their emotions and their lives. Yoga is a powerful tool in combatting stress, which leads to increases in anxiety and depression. Mindful movement, breath, and meditation bring balance that can be otherwise hard to find for the bipolar individual. A regular yoga practice, suited to our physical and mental needs is useful for combatting negative emotions and reducing stress.

What is Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)?

DBT stands on four basic pillars which we will explore in our time together. Below is a general description of what these skills can help you achieve.

Core Mindfulness Skills

Core Mindfulness Skills:

Increase your sense of who you are, your awareness of symptoms, your ability to concentrate, your memory, and your ability to control your thoughts. Decrease confusion about who you are, the lack of awareness that can lead to depression or mania, scattered and racing thoughts, and rumination leading to depression.

Distress Tolerance Skills

Distress Tolerance Skills:

Increase use of healthy coping skills, positive aspects of relationships, and self-esteem. Decrease self-destructive behaviors, burning out your friends and loved ones, and anger towards yourself which reduces self-respect.

Emotion Regulation Skills

Emotion Regulation Skills:

Increases acceptance of emotions, mood stability, and the ability to control emotions. Decreases self-judgements for having emotions, negative emotions coming from unfair judgements, feelings of helplessness and of being overwhelmed, and the all-too familiar emotional rollercoaster.

Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills

Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills:

Increases your ability to get your needs met and support from friends and loved ones. Decreases one-sided and unfulfilling relationships and conflicted, unsupportive relationships.


What People Are Saying

“Shanda conducts each session like an orchestra leader. Everything comes together perfectly: the intention, the poses, the pacing, the readings, the meditations. It’s always a highpoint of my week, a beacon of light for many, many others. She’s awesome! God’s gift.”

Bipolar II

“DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) has proven to be a virtually miraculous tool in helping regulate mood and manage overwhelming feelings, particularly with bipolar and mood disorders. The combination of DBT with a yoga practice—the standard for mindfulness—is an empowering and natural choice for patients who want to gain control of their feelings and maintain emotional stability and mental health. This is one of the most exciting mental health regimens I have seen in years!”
Response from a prominent doctor of clinical psychology, licensed psychologist in DBT practice for over 20 years

“My experience with Shanda had made changes in my life. I was able to sleep better. Learning DBT skills made me manage my emotions better by practicing the meditations and the yoga. I’m grateful I was part of the program because it helped me manage my bipolar disorder.”
