Explore how yoga can positively impact common mental-health issues—from psychological distress to psychiatric diagnoses. We’ll view the functioning of the mind through a yogic lens, and look at how the yoga protocols can promote well-being across a wide range of conditions, including depression, anxiety, addiction, and ADHD.
Ghada Osman, a Harvard-educated PhD, psychotherapist, yoga therapist, and yoga teacher, guides you in:
- Understanding the science behind yoga’s effect on mental health
- Assessing a client’s readiness for working with yoga
- Breaking down the components of yoga therapy into postures (asanas), breathwork (pranayama), meditation (dhyana), and developing witness consciousness
- Developing protocols to work with clients experiencing symptoms of mood disorders, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and addiction.
