Anxiety is one of the most common mental health issues plaguing our society today.  Although a normal part of being alive, anxiety levels are spiralling out of control. The National Office of Stats said that from 2015-2016, 20 percent of the population experienced moderate anxiety in the last week, while 20 percent experienced high levels in the last week. That’s 40% of the UK population! Yoga is a wonderful way to reduce levels of anxiety as it jointly addresses the body and mind and has a profound positive impact on mood. However, not all yoga techniques are ideally suited to...

Basic therapeutic yoga techniques are being used increasingly within psychological therapies, and with good reason;  neuroscience research suggests that body-based practices increase neuroplasticity and improve affect regulation. In addition, mindfulness training promotes the inhibition of old habits, reappraisal of pre-existing assumptions, and the possibility to respond in novel ways. Yogic techniques naturally offer both improved mindfulness and greater emotional regulation, making it a perfect complement to psychological work. Furthermore, as a holistic practice yoga attends to mind, body, behaviour and social interaction, thereby offering a biopsychosocial approach that nicely aligns with a growing appreciation that healing requires attention to all...

We are delighted Timothy McCall is returning to Yogacampus to offer another Yoga As Medicine module. We live in a world where most people have nervous systems that are out of balance. This can be due to stressful lives, inadequate rest, a history of significant trauma, or from the effects of disease itself. Yoga, including a wide variety of yogic tools from chanting to poses to meditation has proven itself to be one of the best ways to balance the body’s autonomic nervous system (ANS). Due to its strong connection to the ANS, there will be a major focus on...
