Yoga Therapy for PTSD

LOCATION: Newcastle upon Tyne
DATE/TIME: 10-14th February 2016, 9AM-5PM daily
COST: 500 pounds

LOCATION: London (near Euston Station)
DATE/TIME: 13-17th April 2016, 9AM-5PM daily
COST: 500 pounds

Join Heather Mason to look at how PTSD has a significant physiological component, which may not be effectively treated by cognitive therapeutic approaches, i.e. top down therapeutic approaches. Current evidence suggests only 50 percent in treatment experience relief and that 6 months after treatment 66 percent of those who responded become symptomatic again. The specific neuropathology of PTSD brings into question the efficacy of talking therapy as the sole form of treatment. Research suggests body based approaches are an important consideration due to the neuropathology of PTSD, in part, because they may support the necessary neuroplastic changes to engage in long-term effective treatment and short-term symptom relief for those with PTSD.

Yoga therapy is emerging as one of the most significant body based treatments for PTSD due to its profound impact on the nervous system combined with its focus on gentle and graded body awareness.

Moreover, as yoga therapy practice is correlated with the development of mindfulness, yoga therapy is also a form of top down regulation and consequently an integrative form of therapy.

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.
