I was introduced to yoga during my time at the PTSD Rehabilitation Residential Program in Newington, CT. Mindful Yoga Therapy has been incredibly helpful to me in coping with my PTSD.
Yoga is like a gyro that brings me back into equilibrium when dealing with the effects of my disorder. The more I practice, the more my symptoms are mitigated.
Yoga has helped to reduce my anxiety and has improved my ability to focus. I like the challenge of doing something that tests my abilities and rewards me with observable progress, which keeps me motivated.
I think of Yoga as survival training for the veteran’s mind, body, and soul.
