What is panic disorder?
Individuals with panic disorder experience intense anxiety episodes that are often accompanied by really uncomfortable physiological sensations. The individual may believe that they are having a heart attack, are dying, will pass out, are going to lose control of bladder or bowels, or feeling like they will “go crazy.” In fact, people often discover they have panic disorder after going to the doctor repeatedly or to the emergency department. Over time, people start engaging in less activities and avoiding feared situations out of concern that they are going to have another panic attack. The first step one of our experts in panic treatment will help you with is assess what panic is like for you and what it is that you fear will happen.

Nina Be - Mind Body Centring Yoga
Excellent all around on so many levels. Perfect mix of asana and pranayama. Teacher has excellent level of knowledge about advanced poses and how to move in and out safely as well as hints about focusing attention. Creative flow used as well as variety in postures that aren't typically in a usual class flow. Appropriate level of spiritual direction and suggestions. Perhaps one of the best teachers I've ever experienced!
I loved how supportive Tatyana was in encouraging us to try new poses or variations and it was okay if it didn't work out, and at the same time did not push us to do anything too far beyond our body's limit. I liked the focus on the mental and meditative aspect, which is what I love about yoga - so many yoga classes seem more like exercise classes these days, but this class seemed like it truly embraced the full experience of yoga.
