Ahimsa (Helen Cushing) is a highly regarded yoga teacher and writer with extensive experience teaching yoga to war veterans, refugees and others with PTSD. She has synthesized her knowledge of yoga for the body and mind with an understanding of the physiological and psychological impact of PTSD to offer a powerful method for relief from this debilitating condition.
Ahimsa presents, advises and writes internationally on yoga for PTSD. Her award-winning documentary, Heroes of Peace, tells the story of the Hobart War Veterans’ Yoga Group, which has been meeting for more than 20 years. This inspiring group was recently featured on ABC TV’s 7.30 Report.
