Heather Mason | Psychology Yoga & Mental Health

October 30, 2016
Sun 9:30-17:30

Heather Mason is the founder of The Minded Institute in London. This Yoga & Mental Health workshop provides essential information for all yoga teachers. More and more these days, we are on the ‘frontline’ with students suffering from anxiety, depression, serious mental health issues, and many on medication. Yoga is NOT a panacea for all things and can even be dangerous. Find out how you can help people with mental health issues and not increase their suffering.

This workshop focuses on mind-body techniques in the treatment of trauma, anxiety, depression and stress, combining the insights of therapeutic yoga, mindfulness, and psychotherapy.

Heather studied Buddhist meditation in SE Asia to overcome anxiety and depression. She is a 500-hr yoga teacher, has an MA in Buddhist Studies from SOAS University, an MA in Buddhism-based psychotherapy and an MSc in Medical Physiology. Heather developed a Mind Body degree program for Maryland University, has taught on the Mind Body medicine course at Harvard, and has lectured on neuroscience and PTSD at the
Boston Trauma Center.
