The Platform: YOGA and the BRAIN, Free Teleseminar Jan 26, 2009
The Twitter: It’s time to grow Neural real estate, not grey hairs!
The Big Idea: Scientific research shows that yogic movement meditation changes the brain!
My thought for the new year? Let mounting stress and uncertainty be opportunities to let yourself learn NEW WAYS TO CALM DOWN — and change your brain for the better!!!!!
Here at GGI, 2009 is off and running with free teleseminars on YOGA and the BRAIN!
Yours truly will introduce you to the core concepts of yogic meditation and neuroscience. Here’s your chance to get a handle on all of buzz on brain fitness and why yoga (movement & meditation) has captured the body, minds, hearts and central nervous systems of young, middle age and old. Please note: the emphasis here is on using meditation for brain restoration and stress reduction.
If you want to know how your “mind” changes your “brain” (and vice versa!), and how yogic meditation is more civilized history than hype, more relevant to brain restoration and fitness than any neuroscientist might guess!
Join us for another free 50 minute intro into the Neuroscience of Movement Meditation and learn about the art and science of neuroplasticity!
