Yoga Therapy + Mindfulness for Addictions

Yoga Therapy + Mindfulness for Addictions
4-day Course, November 2015 – Dates forthcoming
In Edinburgh
With Shaura Hall

Yoga is a remarkable practice.  It builds self-awareness, strength, clarity of mind and resilience and many of its practices can be used as coping mechanisms to overcome personal difficulties.   By clearly understanding how yoga promotes confidence, resilience, and physiological changes, it can be tailored to support people who are addicted to substances and help prevent relapse.  Combining specialized yoga practice with mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT - a common psychological approach in addictions treatment) techniques, offers a method of healing that supports the whole person.  This approach includes physiology, psychology, and behavior, thus enhancing the likelihood of preventing relapse and overcoming addictions.

I know it's early days, but things are opening up to me in a way I never thought possible. I can't be the first person to effusively describe the effect The Minded Institute has had on them. But it is such a big deal it makes me want to laugh and cry the whole time. I feel more in touch with myself than I ever have, work is going well because I have enough peace of mind to do it - I actually hit my first deadline ever for a script because the yoga stopped me freaking out and gave me objectivity. It's like a big spiritual, physical and mental reset button. I feel calmer, sleep better, have calmed down, I wake earlier, I feel healthier... I hoped life could be like this, and I think it can be…I just feel like... myself.
