Yoga, one of the top ten most widely practiced forms of complementary alternative medicine in the United States, incorporates techniques of breathing exercises, physical postures, movement, relaxation and mindfulness.

Yoga as a Complementary Treatment for PTSD.

It calms the nervous system.

  • Breathing is a regulatory tool. For people who have PTSD, their ability to regulate the central nervous system is off. The hypervigilance of PTSD means they’re always on alert. Breathing is a natural tool to self-regulate and calm down without medication. It brings the parasympathetic nervous system back in line ahead of the sympathetic system, regulating the central nervous system.

  • Postures combined with Mindfulness help people with PTSD who might disassociate from their body. Yoga brings them back to their body and helps them see that it’s still OK. Gently guided postures allow people to become more aware of the connection between the physical and emotional response that their body is having, allowing them to be experienced, without freaking out, and knowing it will pass. 

Practicing Yoga, Breathing Techniques and Mindfulness helps one to cultivate a healthier relationship with their physical and emotional body that is strong and feels comfortable, this can contribute substantially to help someone overcome debilitating anxiety and support them living a life with more ease and comfort.
