A talk with Jason Smiley about PTSD, music, yoga, tattoos and life. Editor's note:
When I asked if there is a cure for PTSD and Jason said no and would like to correct that. "There is no single thing that cures it. I gave an answer about a pie and how one should investigate all the different therapies. Although one never gets rid of the actual trauma, technically you can get rid of the stress disorder. I think I was also answering from the perspective of a patient in the VA health care system, where it is unlikely that you will get rid of either. Anyway through various modalities of therapy it is technically possible to rid oneself on the stress disorder, not the actual traumatic event. That part never goes away."
Yoga is a way of life and should be accessible to all.
Community is important. Everyone is a valuable member and we are here to serve our community.
Everyone is perfect just as they are. Everyone has their own path and is at a different point in life.
From physical abilities to beliefs, everyone is at the right place at the right time.
