Is there a relationship between the physical yoga practice and our ability to cope and manage stress in our everyday lives? There is a rapidly growing body of research exploring the links between mindfulness, yoga, and psychological well-being. In this introductory workshop we’ll cover some of the most prominent studies, what has been found, what hasn’t, and what benefits and implications yoga has for the brain, mind, and physical body. This workshop will primarily consist of lecture with some experiential/movement practice. All levels are welcome and encouraged to participate and enjoy a deep understanding of how yoga impacts our well-being.
