There is empirical evidence that along with anxiety and depression, this practice helps those who suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), characterized by intrusive and repetitive thoughts.

Yoga Nidra ist eine sehr wirkungsvolle Technik, die man auch als Tiefenentspannung mit innerer Bewusstheit bezeichnen kann. Ein wunderbarer Effekt von Yoga Nidra ist eine absolute Tiefenentspannung auf korperlicher, emotionaler und mentaler Ebene.

Brown & Gerbarg (2005) state there is however sufficient evidence to yoga and meditation benefits in the treatment of stress, anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, stress-related medical illnesses and substance abuse. Friends, family and strangers are affected by post traumatic stress disorder due to traumatic life experiences. Effective use of yogic breath techniques for a wide range of clinical conditions is based on the theory of the effects of Sudarshan Kriya Yoga (SKY). Gordon (2006), kept a diary while visiting Gaza in July 2005 with the Healing the Wounds of War program of the Center for Mind-Body Medicine with a team of eight healthcare professionals and two staff members whose mission is to help local mental health professionals and other community support persons deal with the psychological trauma that war brings. Symptoms of combat stress and PTSD include continual nightmares, avoidance behaviors, denial, grief, anger and fear.

Evidence shows us the psychological and physical benefits of yoga and meditation with proper training by a skilled teacher and a 30 minute practice each day to maximize the benefits.
The physical and psychological effects of PTSD can not be denied and the response described is how someone feels with PTSD most of the time. Yogic breathing is a unique method for balancing the autonomic nervous system and influencing psychological and stress-related disorders. Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep transfers experiences from short-term to long-term memory; we are better able to understand why immediate processing of the trauma of warfare is necessary to prevent PTSD. The conception of an intensive eight-week therapeutic PTSD Day Treatment Program call “evolution” that began in March 2009 at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. In ihm konnen sich uberholte Denk- und Verhaltensmuster sowie Blockaden und deren Ursprung zeigen. Diese kreieren fur Yogaklassen oder personliche Ubungen zuhause einen idealen Flow, schaffen jedoch auch einen relaxten Rahmen, um sich einfach mal fur einige Zeit auszulinken. If you regularly sit, it helps to have a technique to clear your mind so that more of your twenty or thirty minutes is spent floating on the still pond of your mind, observing the ripples and waves of your thoughts and feelings and less on drowning in them.  This meditation should not be practiced without Amy’s guidance. I am dedicated to learning as much as I can about the system in which care is provided so that resources, products, and services can be developed and utilized by treatment programs working with our Warriors.
The clinical research complied by Van Der Kolk (2006) demonstrates that exposure to extreme stress affects brain function.
I chose this topic because my father suffered from PTSD due to his capture and imprisonment in World War II.
I would like to examine the alternative therapies in treating PTSD and the efficacy of the use of yoga and mediation and the benefits physiologically as well as psychologically. Andrews (2009) tells us that during stress our brain sends hormones and other substances racing through our system to prepare us for action. Gordon learned using a model of psychological self-expression and self-care; mind-body medicine to include meditation, guided imagery, biofeedback, and yoga that an astounding 88% of the students with PTSD at the beginning of a six week program only 38% have it afterwards. The hippocampus of the brain works like a librarian who picks up the note cards of a card catalog that has been dumped on the floor. During the eight-hour days, patients enrolled in the program participate in multiple disciplines and interests, including art therapy, yoga and meditation classes, substance abuse groups, anger and grief management and multiple PTSD evidence-base practice protocols.
Vertiefte Studien des Yoga, des Yoga Nidra, der Meditation und des Buddhismus inspirieren ihre Arbeiten. Weintraub, a leader in the field of yoga therapy, offers evidence-based, easy-to-introduce strategies for managing anxiety, improving mood, and relieving suffering.
This includes the idea that traumatized individuals are vulnerable or hyper alert to react to sensory information and that effective treatment needs to involve learning to tolerate feelings, sensations and to moderate arousal.
We become hyper alert, our hearts race and breathing is rapid, our muscles tense and our digestive process shut down. Many PTSD patients have found that deep breathing while lying in bed at night with the lights out will help induce sleep.
Self-completed PTSD checklists showed a significant decrease in reported symptoms for three of the four patients in the first group. More than one friend as survived childhood sexual abuse and currently seek counseling for PTSD due to brutal childhood sexual abuse by a relative.

Andrews (2009) suggests meditation can be beneficial at the cellular and even genetic level to bolster the immune system and reduce stress. With the eyes closed, the patient breathes slowly through the nose using a slight contraction of the laryngeal muscles and partial closure of the glottis, which is the long opening between the vocal cords at the upper part of a vertebrate's windpipe larynx. During REM sleep, the hippocampus organizes these memories and transfers them to long-term memory. My objective is to determine alternative ways to treat post traumatic stress disorder rather than the use of traditional therapies. The glottis is open during breathing but is closed by the epiglottis during swallowing to produce the Ujjayi or “ocean” sound.
If traumatic events of the previous day are left unaddressed and unresolved, disturbing emotions are transferred from short-term to long-term memory.
But if the trauma is addressed and properly processed, the resolved emotions and stability are instead transferred to long-term memory, reducing the possibility of later PTSD (Hodges, 2004).
Ujjayi quiets the mind, reduces obsessive worry, and induces a state of physical and mental calmness conducive to sleep. Imagine if all our veterans practiced yoga and meditation with the possibility of immediate benefits that may result. Studies on yoga programs that include Ujjayi , yoga postures, and meditation have shown benefits in medical patients with anxiety disorders (Brown & Gerbarg, 2005). I have found that the techniques she shares are powerfully effective for dispelling the dark clouds of negativity and hopelessness. While taking yoga classes with Amy at Kripalu, I noticed a definite shift in my consciousness, a reduction in stress, and an improvement in my well-being. I see Amy’s classes as very fluid, well-structured arrangements of poses, breathing exercises and vocalizations. Amy manages to pace her sessions and her voice at just the right tempo as to add focus and confidence to the students’ efforts. The systematic progression of movements in Amy’s classes naturally engages the student to go further and further within, tapping into the wellspring of their potential.” — Leo Gosseli, musician, Prescott, AZ“I have found the pranayama (breathing practices) especially easy to introduce in a clinical setting.
Director of the Kripalu Institute for Extraordinary Living“Amy Weintraub’s work is some of the most important in our world today for helping humanity understand more deeply the significance of the mind-body connection.
Her in-depth understanding of her subject is an important basis for personal, as well as societal transformation.” — Rama Jyoti Vernon, Founder, American Yoga College, co-founder Yoga Journal“I typically live in a state of future hope and past fear, both totally about stress. Amy takes me, step-by-step, through postures and breathing exercises that straighten out my emotional tangles.
She has developed yogic solutions to many chronic health problems, and to many of the ways we habitually get stuck in our bodies and minds.
