They do not want to exercise as they feel very awful doing all this. But the Yoga practice is what that calm down their minds and what can make them feel relax.

By practicing only three poses of yoga in the start for only few minutes, one can feel better. It will reduce the heavy and unmoving feelings of depression that are the main symptoms of depression. Yoga is very helpful in relaxing he mind and body of depressed person, because it pressure on glands and organs of the body of person which aid them to produce soothing and chemical balance (that is needed to feel well and relaxed).
