Your brain on yoga


What brain science really tells us about the impact of yoga on the brain?

Sunday 23rd September 2018 // 11 am - 2 pm

In this workshop you will learn about how yoga actually changes the brain, as shown by scientific research. We will start by reviewing the basics of brain anatomy and the methods used in brain research.

We will then discuss how specific asanas, like inversions, affect the brain. This will be followed by a close examination of the cognitive and neuronal changes brought about by yoga practice, with a special focus on meditation and pranayama.

The workshop will include a related meditation practice. The workshop is suitable for anyone who is interested to know how yoga practice affects his brain.

It is also beneficial for teachers who want to know which information they can accurately share with their students.


This workshop will be in English with some German-translation possible on demand.
