Yoga’s popularity has skyrocketed in America in recent years. Once thought of as mostly a spiritual practice, it has grown into a multi-billion dollar exercise industry. It’s also gotten the attention of mental health experts who are increasingly interested in yoga’s potential to help treat depression, anxiety, and even post-traumatic stress disorder.

Jason Moser, Assistant Professor in MSU’s Department of Psychology, is one of those experts. This summer, he set out to see if yoga could help veterans manage their PTSD symptoms.

Current State talks with him about his findings, along with Logan Stark, a former Marine and MSU senior who worked with Jason, and his yoga instructor Kintla Ernst.
