Neuroscience and Yoga

How and Why Yoga Works

Mala Cunningham

Exciting news!  Neuroscience has shown that we can impact on mood states and can positively change the structure and function of our brain and nervous system with yoga practices. With the advent of new technologies, researchers can now see directly into our brain and body and can observe how yoga and mindfulness practices shape our brain and our neurobiology.

Understanding the yoga practices through the lens of neuroscience can improve our self-healing ability, happiness, resiliency, and compassion. Yoga practices can alter and re-wire our neuropathways—and can therefore, change negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Research has also shown that yoga improves depression, anxiety, and stress levels.

Join us and learn what cutting-edge Neuroscience has to offer you.

Offered as 2 satsangs (subject to change)
