Brain Science and Yoga: Why (and How) Yoga Works

with M. Mala Cunningham, Ph.D., C-IAYT

March 3 - 5, 2017

Yoga works—here’s proof.

New technologies allow researchers to see directly into our brain and observe how mindfulness practices shape our brain and our physiology. It’s exciting to know that through Yoga practices we can alter and re-wire our neuropathways—and therefore change our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors—which will increase our ability to heal, achieve peace, and perform at our best.

In this workshop, learn how Yoga and mindfulness affect your neurophysiology, along with hands-on techniques designed to help improve mental and physical health. You’ll also learn how to increase peak performance, and work through such negative emotional cycles as anxiety, depression, addictions, anger, and stress.       

These techniques and tools are on the cutting edge of neuroscience and medical Yoga.  Come learn what neuroscience, Yoga, and mindfulness have to offer you.
