Refugees try yoga to help combat PTSD, depression, and anxiety

Not only is the venue well suited to the practice, but the choice therapy appears to be working out as well. 

Lisa Malinowski, a yoga instructor and mindfulness educator who led the women in the yoga session, said that yoga can be a particularly useful practice for analyzing our thought processes and breathing.

"Yoga and mindfulness is a practice, but it's a tool," Malinowski said. "I like to think of it as something you can bring to your everyday life. We have our breath every moment that we're living, or walking, or driving. So when we learn how to practice our breath and notice our breath, we become much more aware of how our body is feeling and we're able to regulate those emotions."

The sessions can also go beyond offering relaxation and therapy. They can be a chance for participants to get to know other families and learn more about American culture.

Noor Hammoud, a student at Wayne State and a translator for the movement therapy class, said that the changes she's seen in the kids from the start of the program until now are "immense." She says that the kids are not only happier, but better adjusted to life in their new country.
