Nonprofit uses yoga to help people with PTSD

If you've practiced yoga for a while, you know that yoga can really help you get through the unexpected stressors that life throws your way. When you've had a bad day at work, an argument with a loved one or just aren't feeling yourself, letting the stress go on the mat is the perfect way to find your center.

This concept applies to much more than the daily worries and problems that keep you from feeling your best; yoga can help people heal from traumatic events too. SELF Magazine wrote about Bilyana Simonoski's journey with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and how yoga helped her reconnect with herself -- physically and mentally.

"'I got set up with an amazing therapist who encouraged me to practice self-care, so in addition to meditation and journaling, I started doing yoga videos on YouTube,'” Bilyana told SELF.

Bilyana decided that women in shelters and other people who have been through intense traumas could truly benefit from access to free yoga classes. That's why she started a nonprofit called Tough As Milk. Read more about this amazing organization here!
