What is it?
The Yoga Therapy for the Mind course is an evidence-based yoga therapy and mindfulness course for the treatment of stress, anxiety and mild depression.
In weeks 1-5, there is an emphasis on regulation skills and gentle mindfulness practice. Introducing regulatory skills before mindfulness creates safety and self-efficacy. Yoga offers many techniques to regulate and soothe the nervous system.
In weeks 5-8 Mindfulness is introduced as a more formal practice. Mindfulness improves the quality of regulation. By being mindful we become more aware of when we need to regulate an aspect of our experience in the here and now. Without real awareness of our thoughts and feelings, it is hard to even know if we are upset or when the breath changes. With practice, we begin to notice when we feel uncomfortable, and recognise all the little mind body cues that occur before discomfort becomes full blown depression, anxiety or stress. In this way we can regulate early, and nip the entire mental pattern in the bud before it floods us. Additionally, mindfulness has real implications for brain structure and can help the process of restoring and creating neurological balance.
Run by Nadia-Tzaneti and Helen Lewis British Wheel of Yoga Teachers, and Yoga for the Mind Practitioners at the Priory Hospital, Hayes Grove. We teach tailored evidence-based protocols for specific mental health issues including stress, anxiety and depression.
Investment £230 for the course. This includes a 2x CD Set and Manual for Home Practice.
