Neuroscience, Yoga, and Mindfulness 5-Day Retreat: How Yoga Heals
with M. Mala Cunningham, Ph.D., C-IAYT
September 6 - 10, 2019
The field of neuroscience shows that you can actually change your brain patterns—and therefore change your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors—which can promote healing in your system.
This 5-day retreat will focus on strategies for healing the body and mind through Yoga and mindfulness techniques. Dr. Mala will introduce you to powerful concepts and practices that she uses with her clients in her private practice. You’ll have the luxury of time and space to work with these amazing practices under Dr. Mala’s guidance and support.
In this mindfulness retreat, you’ll explore:
- Scientific ways you can rewire the brain, releasing old patterns and introducing new, healing energy
- Powerful hands-on healing methods designed to help with emotional balance through their positive impact on anxiety, depression, addictions, anger, stress, and other emotional and mental issues
- Established tools for helping with physical healing issues
These ideas and tools are on the cutting edge of neuroscience and therapy. Come to learn about this fascinating new field and discover what neuroscience, Yoga, and mindfulness have to offer you.
