Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) is not restricted to war veterans. Yoga meditation is proving to be very effective according to the article “War to Peace” in the the latest available online issue of the magazine Australian Yoga Life. It describes how trataka, full yogic breath, ujjayi pranayama, Yoga Nidra, sankalpa (positive affirmation) have helped Vietnam veterans in Tasmania. This will not surprise those of you who have found Yoga Nidra enormously helpful in overcoming emotional pain.
The magazine is an excellent free online resource. The article “Kleshas” on p. 34, and “Playing it Safe: Virabhadrasana 2” on p. 52 are recommended.
