Mental Yoga E-sessions eliminate traditional obstacles to self-help, offering real breakthroughs to millions through their PCs, 24 hours a day

Andrew Bernstein, founder of Mental Yoga, today launched “E-sessions” — interactive audio programs that give millions of people a new way to deal with their stressful issues.

E-sessions remove the three biggest barriers to self-help: cost, inconvenience and stigma. In the 50-minute E-sessions, site visitors to http://www.mentalyoga.com purchase a downloadable Mental Yoga workbook and select a topic from a library of choices. Bernstein then guides them step-by-step through his mind-stretching mental workout via a pre-recorded audio stream. Current E-session topics include:

  • I should weigh less.
  • I should have more money.
  • I shouldn’t get so angry.
  • They should appreciate me more.    
  • I should be more successful.
  • I’m not beautiful.
  • I should be happier.

New E-sessions on common stressors like sex, relationships, money, and parenting will be added to the site monthly. By the end of 2005, the library will contain approximately 100 e-sessions, all available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, from any online PC in the world. Prices range between $19 and $39 per session, so people can afford to do them as often as needed.

“The Internet has revolutionized countless industries, but until now it has hardly touched self-help,” said Bernstein. “That’s because most self-help processes are tailored to the individual and require in-person contact. Mental Yoga is tailored to the issue, not the individual, so anyone with that issue can go through the process online and find peace.”

Unlike traditional self-help, Mental Yoga doesn’t involve analysis, advice, or motivation. It’s based on insight, and uses penetrating questions and written exercises to help participants experience a breakthrough that transforms the mind — where Bernstein asserts all stress begins. After helping hundreds of people experience dramatic breakthroughs in his public, private, and corporate workshops, Bernstein realized that if he recorded his suggestions on the most common topics, he could stream them online and help millions more.

“Almost everyone experiences stress today,” said Bernstein, “Yet most of us don’t do anything productive about it. With Mental Yoga and the Internet, we now have the technology to offer a new solution. Thousands of people could work through an issue simultaneously via E-sessions, and it’s still private and comfortable for each one of them. Nothing like this has been possible before in self-help.”

About Mental Yoga

Mental Yoga is based on the insight that stress doesn’t come from what’s going on in your life — it comes from your thoughts about what’s going on in your life. This 15-step non-physical process changes lives by transforming the mind through insight-provoking written exercises. Mental Yoga was created by Andrew Bernstein after years of exploring the most powerful self-help techniques available and was launched in the summer of 2004.
