- Post traumatic Stress Disorder – “Losing your way in the World” Bessel van der Kolk.
“Post –traumatic stress disorder is a complex and debilitating disorder involving dysregulation of the mind, body and mind-body interface. Given that yoga is a mind-body practise known to have benefit for all these elements, and has had significant therapeutic benefit in a number of related disorders, it is likely that yoga will be a useful addition to existing PTSD treatments” Sat Bir Khals,PhD
In 2008, IEL (Institute for Extraordinary Living) researcher Sat Bir Khalsa, PhD, received a grant from the Department of Defence (USA) to study the effects of Kripalu Yoga practise on Military personnel with PTSD. IEL has collaborated with trauma and yoga experts to develop a comprehensive yoga programme specifically designed to relieve symptoms of post- traumatic stress disorder.
