Heal the Mind. Balance the Body. For thousands of years Ayurvedic doctors have used the science of yoga psychology to heal diseases of the mind. Any trauma to the emotional mind will result in long term stress, depression and addiction issues.

All addiction stems from pain. Whether it is a drug, alcohol, food, or sex addiction, or also the emotional stress of PTSD, the person is trying to get away from their pain.

The yogis of ancient India found that the breath and the mind are indelibly connected. If we can control our breath, we can calm and control the mind.

The poses and breathing techniques of Yoga will allow anyone to change their lifestyle and take control of their mind, rather than being a slave to it. Learn to live life without fear, and in the knowledge that you are forever the architect of your own destiny.
