Talk:Motivation and emotion/Book/2013/Yoga and emotion
Hey, you're doing really well so far! I know the few times i have been to yoga I feel so relaxed and sleepy afterwards as opposed to other classes where I feel extremely energetic and sore after. So it would be interesting to see where you go with the emotion side of yoga.. Maybe look into emotions before and after yoga, if you are interested in that..?
Here is an article that hopefully is useful to you. Woolery, A., Myers, H., Sternleib, B., Zeltzer, L. (2004). A yoga intervention for young adults with elevated symptoms of depression. Alternative Therapies, 10(2), 60 – 64. Sara-anne123 (discuss • contribs) 08:57, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
Dissociative remedy?[edit source]
I have heard and read that Yoga can have immense and diverse health and well being benefits. I see that you have alleviation of depression and anxiety listed as being some of the emotional/psychological benefits, and am just wondering whether or not there is currently a pool of research out there on Yoga and the benefits it can provide for people with dissociative experiences. As it seems that one of the reasons many people undertake Yoga is because of its philosophy of Mindfulness and "being in the present moment", and dissociative experiences/disorders are often quite contrary to this philosophy, I just thought this may be a helpful content suggestion for your page :)
I'd be interested to know about what the research to date shows regarding this, if you end up including it in your page!
All the best,
Hi! When I searched this topic in Google scholar a lot of articles regarding yoga and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) appeared. Maybe this could also be worth checking out under your practical applications? Also perhaps the recent influx of yoga could be mentioned? has it become more popular in recent years etc? Why? Also maybe discuss the benefits of yoga and how any relaxation techniques that you learn from classes can be applied to daily emotional stress? Goodluck with your chapter! --U3068359 (discuss • contribs) 01:15, 27 October 2013 (UTC)u3068359
Another resource[edit source]
Hi I'm doing Transactional stress and coping, and found this book review with some interesting stress management methods. Although it doesn't have all the pages, there appears to be enought to gain some information from it. It does have a chapter on Yoga that may be useful for you, if you need it. Principles and practice of stress management PS - I think some of your information and links look relevent to my chapter. If you don't mind, I would like to link to your chapter in mine.

Fantastic chapter[edit source]
Wow - I've had a quick skim and this is looking like a fantastic chapter - clearly relevant to the book theme, well presented, a mixture of theory and research etc. Love it and look forward to a closer ready. This feedback page is also an excellent demonstration of collaborative engagement, including your responses, Iluvyoga41yf3. What a wonderful contribution. Sincerely, James -- Jtneill - Talk - c 13:31, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
^ Yes thanks for reminding me, I was leaving that till the very end so that the writing was all done and I could make sure all the links are in the correct places :) Iluvyoga4lyf3 (discuss • contribs) 01:04, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
Types of yoga[edit source]
Apologies if this already covered, but I wonder if it worth discussing different types of yoga in terms of their theory/connection with emotion e.g., Satynanda vs. Hatha ... etc. Perhaps it is possible to even make brief mention with reference(s) to more detailed discussion. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 13:31, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

An interesting and well presented chapter - well done!
Theories are really well identified and explored. Well done for making the chapter practical. To improve further, include some critical analysis throughout.
Research is well incorporated, and described at a level appropriate for the target audience. While the inclusion of research on physical health is useful, it could perhaps have been reduced so that mental health was a clearer focus.
^ Thanks a lot!

A very nicely presented and succinct summary of chapter content - great job!
Theory and research are included throughout, and key concepts have been well identified. A logical flow between concepts is demonstrated. Content appears to be accurate, and is of an academic standard.
The visual presentation of this chapter is a real highlight. The inclusion of music is also a great idea, and is complimentary to the theme. Ideas are communicated very clearly. Illustrative examples are also incorporated nicely. This all made the presentation very engaging.
Picture and sound quality are good. Production tools have been used very effectively to create a great presentation, which is professional and informative. An area for improvement would be to work on making dialogue volume consistent throughout - the changing volume was quite distracting.ShaunaB (discuss • contribs)
