What is Yoga-CBT (Y-CBT)?

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a well known evidenced-based approach to manage anxiety. CBT impacts the way you think and respond to stress. CBT strategies help you to replace negative thoughts with new more balanced thoughts which can reduce symptoms of anxiety and stress.
  • Yoga (physical postures, conscious breathing and meditation) targets your physical and psychological response to stress.
  • When you combine yoga and CBT, known as Y-CBT, you target both the body and the mind, which helps you deal more effectively with life’s challenges. Research has demonstrated that Y-CBT can improve anxiety, depression, panic, sleep, and quality of life*.
  • Y-CBT is accessible to everyone. No special clothing or equipment is required. The yoga involves gentle movements, conscious breathing exercises and meditation, which are all done while seated in a chair.
