The Association is hosting a free information day on Saturday 26 May 2012 at Wellington Park Hotel,Belfast. To support the BTA’s day representatives from the Yoga Fellowship of Northern Ireland (YFNI) will be there so those attending can enjoy a taster session of yoga.
Those with tinnitus may find noises are worse when they are anxious or stressed, as a result the British Tinnitus Association recommends undertaking relaxation techniques, including yoga, regularly. Relaxation can reduce the loudness of tinnitus, and also break the vicious circle of stress and anxiety often accompanying the experience of tinnitus.
When tinnitus starts, particularly if it's sudden, some sufferers may be frightened and their concentration or sleep disturbed. By incorporating yoga into their lives they may be able to help manage their stress, improve concentration and promote better sleep.
Practising relaxation and taking time out can be of great help to anyone, tinnitus sufferer or not. So why not come along and visit the YFNI stand on 26 May and find out how yoga can help you.
A not-for-profit voluntary organisation supporting, promoting and training yoga in Northern Ireland

What is tinnitus?
It is the perception of sound in the absence of any corresponding external sound. This noise may be heard in one ear, in both ears or in the middle of the head or it may be difficult to pinpoint its exact location. The noise may be low, medium or high‑pitched. There may be a single noise or two or more components. The noise may be continuous or it may come and go.
What causes tinnitus?
The precise cause of tinnitus is still not fully understood. Tinnitus is not a disease or an illness, it is a symptom generated within a person's own auditory pathways.
