Did you know that yoga has the power to change the very structure of your brain?
Come discover what happens in your brain during your practice. Learn how to use its abilities more effectively in order to bring about positive change. Your Brain on Yoga presents current research that demonstrates the physical and psychological benefits of yoga – benefits that extend beyond ourselves to those around us.
We will explore:
- how the brain works
- ways that neural circuitry creates patterns of thoughts and feelings
- connections between body, breath and brain
- the brain’s natural capacity to adapt and change
- yoga’s potential to deepen the connection to ourselves and others
This master class combines science with practical, insightful exercises and mindful movement. Experience how yoga as mindful meditation can lead to a fuller life and greater happiness.
Dr. Harris will be joining us live via Skype as she continues her neuroscience research in Scotland.
