About The Minded Institute

The Minded Institute is a world leader in the development and implementation of yoga therapy and mindfulness programs for those with mental health and chronic physical health problems. Based in the UK, we work with both individuals and healthcare professions to provide:

  • Evidence-based courses for supporting those with stress, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, addictions, and schizophrenia. We also work with chronic conditions like high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, support those with cancer, inflammatory conditions, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s, chronic pain, and muscular skeletal issues.
  • Professional training courses, certificates in yoga therapy, workshops and lectures.
  • Conducting research that informs our treatment and training programs.
  • Lobbying for yoga’s inclusion in the NHS.

Founded by Heather Mason, The Minded Institute grew out of her own personal experiences with depression and anxiety. After years of practicing yoga and meditation – experiencing first hand the profound effect these ancient disciplines can have on self-healing – Heather decided to devote her time to the creation of programs that had a positive effect on the psychological and physiological challenges that are inherent in a variety of mental and physical health issues.

Combined with the extensive academic study of Buddhism, Psychology, Psychotherapy, Neuroscience, Yoga Therapy and Mindfulness, Heather effectively combined ancient mind-body practices with modern scientific insight. In conjunction with our Yoga Therapy courses, The Minded Institute is also committed to research, innovation, education, growth and raising awareness of mind body healing. These essential components enable us to understand the various benefits that our training programs have on the human condition, while ensuring that people from all walks of life have access to the transformative benefits of yoga therapy.

Our greatest hope is that through a combination of compassion, purpose and determination, we can continue to provide increasingly effective ways of helping those who are suffering from mental and physical health difficulties, while teaching others to do the same.

We invite you to join us in our work and in our vision.
