Does yoga really change the brain? What is the connection between the mind and body in the context of yoga and mindfulness? Is there a relationship between the physical yoga practice and our ability to cope and manage stress in our everyday lives? In this workshop we’ll cover some of the most prominent research, 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 deeper understanding of how yoga impacts our well-being.
