Yoga is rewiring your brain. Different forms of meditation alter your brain uniquely, and we can use this information to tailor our yoga practices. Some yoga practices elicit fast brain waves in the centers of your brain responsible for executive functions. Other practices produce predominantly slower wave activity associated with relaxation and creativity. Which is the best yoga medicine for you?
Each session will include information on neuroscience research and a complete yoga practice to do at home. The yoga practice will include movement, breathwork, and meditation techniques.
Focus Meditation: Wake up your focus, self-monitoring, and mental stability with focus practices
