Yoga is effective as a supportive adjunct to mitigate some mental health conditions, but not yet a proven stand-alone,
curative treatment. This is why we implement CBT and Positive Psychology as a larger-scale and more rigorous intervention. Talk and yoga therapy combined has the potential to be implemented as a beneficial supportive/adjunct treatment that is relatively cost-effective. These can be practiced at least in part as a self-care behavioral treatment providing life-long behavioral skills, enhanceing self-efficacy and self-confidence. It is often associated with additional positive side effects.
