As a seasoned yoga instructor, I have seen first-hand the benefits of bringing yoga into hospitals and mental health settings. Working in these environments, I often have questions from colleagues and yoga students about the technical aspects of yoga therapy and I wanted to have a summary of yoga research at my fingertips. This course provided a comprehensive overview of some of the most cutting-edge yoga research. It taught me many things including common flaws in yoga research design and what to look for when evaluating the efficacy of a study. Dr. Staples is a master in the field of yoga research and she makes the information interesting to learn. This course is a "must" for anyone working or interested in the field of yoga therapy.
Bringing the practice of yoga into the healthcare system is a challenging, but important, part of expanding options for people facing serious stress-related disorders like anxiety, depression, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. As a yoga teacher and yoga therapist, I found Julie’s courses to be crucial in helping me gain the skills and confidence to talk to physicians and scientists about the scientific evidence of yoga’s benefits. Clinicians now feel confident referring their patients to my classes. Julie’s presentations are always interesting and lively, and she is very helpful in answering questions.

About me

I am the Research Director at the Center for Mind-Body Medicine and a certified Kundalini Yoga teacher. I have conducted research in mind-body medicine for traumatized populations worldwide for over 20 years. I am an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Georgetown University. I teach online courses for yoga teachers, yoga therapists, and health professionals on the science of yoga. Our self-help book Reclaiming Life after Trauma teaches Kundalini yoga and cognitive behavioral therapy tools to heal trauma symptoms. I currently run Integrative Trauma Recovery Program workshops and intensive retreats. About our Integrative Trauma Recovery Retreat Are you ready to reclaim your life after trauma? Then join us in beautiful Taos New Mexico, USA October 24th - 26th 2019 for our next three day intensive retreat. During our six hours together each day you will learn tools that will enable you to: • Release distressing memories, flashbacks, feelings of numbness, worthlessness, and despair; • Leave behind hypervigilance, physical tension, and reactivity to environmental triggers; • Experience increased peace, joy, security and sound, restorative sleep. What you'll learn each day Day 1: The “hidden wisdom” and deep intelligence of PTSD symptoms. Appreciating this aspect of symptoms sets the stage for releasing them.You’ll also learn and practice a yoga exercise for resetting parts of the body and brain damaged by trauma. Day 2: Two powerful CBT tools to reshape the self-defeating beliefs that characterize PTSD. You'll also master a yoga practice our research and that of colleagues has demonstrated supports sound, peaceful, restorative sleep. Day 3: Two additional CBT tools with which to shift PTSD’s negative thought patterns into positive, believable, life-enhancing thinking. You’ll also learn and practice a yoga sequence that releases physical stress, calms the body and restores physical and mental balance. Our retreat offers a unique opportunity to learn and master a suite of powerful, integrative, self-help tools that support any person’s wellness. Many participants have been diagnosed with PTSD or would meet the criteria for this diagnosis. Others would not quality for such a diagnosis yet struggle to put some traumatic event behind them. They might be experiencing insomnia, physical stress or difficulty regulating memories and emotions associated with some painful experience. Any and all such participants have benefited greatly from our program. For more information please message or call me.
