"MFY gave me a deeper understanding of the breaths effect on the nervous system, and it´s significance for toning parasympaticus, and how to share this with patients. For patients with mental health suffering and a high degree of unease, this approach has contributed to increase body awareness, and highten tolerance for embodying the suffering. They reported better emotional regulation, and most importantly the experience of agency in creating ease when in unease."
"The MFY program gave me insight on how to adapt and accommodate the various tools of yoga to patients conditions. In addition, it was very inspiring to meet other health care workers also applying yoga in therapy, and being able to discuss application with collegues."
"Learning Mindful Yoga as Applied Practice for mental and emotional health was a not only a common ground to explore theory, and practice, but also inspiration for projects and establishing important collegial contact for collaboration. The training embodied how basic principles from the vast yoga tradition and updated science can ameliorate mental symptoms and foster more meaning and joy in life."
