What is yoga for the mind?
Yoga for the Mind is a completely unique mind-body therapy for managing and healing from a range of mental health problems including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, stress and post traumatic stress disorder. It unites yoga therapy for mental health, mindfulness and psychotherapeutic principals with the latest research in neuroscience, to provide a comprehensive and effective cutting-edge strategy for self-healing.
We use this multi-dimensional approach because we are made up of many parts and emotional healing is therefore a complex process.
When we suffer emotionally both our psychology and physiology are influenced, essentially our whole being is affected from the inside out. The process of emotional healing must therefore include both the body and the mind. If we only work with the body we miss the thought patterns that give rise to suffering, and if we only deal with the thoughts, we ignore our biochemistry and physiology, which often changes during prolonged periods of emotional imbalance.
Appreciating this deep mind-body connection, Yoga for the Mind teaches us how to harness the combined power of body and mind in a process of mutual care, and through a fusion of yoga movement, breath regulation and self-awareness practices, educates us in how to rebalance and regain awareness of all parts of ourselves.
