Description

Are you taking medication for bipolar depression but still not feeling as good as you would like?

Researchers at Butler Hospital and Brown University are conducting a clinical trial to investigate two adjunctive interventions for the management of bipolar depression: a workbook-guided self-help intervention or 10 weeks of yoga classes.  

Yoga classes are:

* small in size - which allows tailoring to your specific needs;
* suitable for people who may not be physically active;
* designed specifically for people with a history of depression.

This is a Brown University research study, and has been approved by the Butler Hospital and Brown University Internal Research Boards.
