About Minded: Working With Individuals & Healthcare Professionals

The Minded Institute (TMI) is a world-leader in providing expert yoga therapy education and training to yoga and health professionals to work with mental and physical health conditions. The UK-based institute is known for working at the interface between yoga therapy, mindfulness, neurophysiology, psychotherapeutic principles, and evidence-based practice. TMI is also actively involved in lobbying for the inclusion of yoga therapy and yoga in the NHS.

Today, the organisation is comprised of two entities:

  • Minded Professional Training Ltd., an educational not-for-profit offering Professional Diplomas for those wanting to become Minded Yoga Therapists.
  • Minded CPD Ltd., providing expert short training courses and continuing professional development (CPD) in therapeutic yoga.

Throughout this website and the prospectus for our Professional Diploma in Yoga Therapy, we refer to The Minded Institute and/or ‘Minded’ as an umbrella term for both organisations.

Founded by Heather Mason, The Minded Institute grew out of her own personal experiences with depression and anxiety. After years of practising yoga and meditation–experiencing first hand the profound effect these ancient disciplines can have on self-healing–Heather decided to devote her time to the creation of programs that had a positive effect on the psychological and physiological challenges that are inherent in a variety of mental and physical health issues. Combined with the extensive academic study of Buddhism, Psychology, Psychotherapy, Neuroscience, Yoga Therapy and Mindfulness, Heather effectively combined ancient mind-body practices with modern scientific insight.
