Welcome to the APS Yoga & Psychology Interest Group Website.
Established in 2011, we are a group of psychologists dedicated to supporting each other, our patients and communities in benefiting from the many gifts yoga has to offer.
In our personal lives and professional practices we see that yoga is a state-based psychology highly compatible with contemporary mindfulness psychotherapies. Our passion is supporting personal and professional development related to the practical application of yogic practices and principles.
We believe that the next generation of mindfulness research will be heading towards integrating the significance of the body and bliss as it relates to mental health and wellbeing. Yoga provides maps to explain this broader understanding of experience and our group actively supports research that aims to integrate empiricism with thousands of years’ worth of experiential wisdom.
