Scientific studies show that trauma-sensitive yoga therapy can significantly decrease PTSD symptoms in veterans. Participants of one study showed improved mindfulness and decreased insomnia, depression, and anxiety. The study also suggests that veterans who become yoga professionals may be distinctly effective in offering therapeutic yoga to fellow veterans. If you’re a Veteran and a Yoga Therapist, let us know!

A study published in Military Medicine examined results of a 6-week yoga intervention that showed significant improvement in PTSD hyperarousal symptoms, sleep quality, and daytime sleep dysfunction. The study suggests that since some Veterans don’t improve with the current evidence-based psychotherapy treatments, yoga can be a valuable adjunctive therapy.
