Are you interested to discover the powerful connection among Yoga, your brain and your health? We all want to lead a happy and healthy life, but the possible key to embodying both may actually begin in our brain. Integrating cutting-edge science with timeless spirituality, this inspiring and unique program explores how the latest research in neuroscience and mind-body medicine can cultivate more happiness and wellbeing in our life.


In the past decade greater interest in Eastern philosophy and its connection with 21st century science has gained popularity. Specifically, the influence of contemplative practices such as Yoga, meditation and breath-work to heal the body has prompted medical science to explore these benefits. Integrating medical research with spiritual philosophy, this unique training explores how current advances in contemplative neuroscience, cognitive psychology and integrative medicine align with ancient teachings from the Yoga Sutras and the Upanishads. Course content will examine the correlates of Yogic practices and neurobiology through the study of brain anatomy, neuroplasticity, and the interplay between emotions, thoughts and behavior for health and well-being.


Led by a recognized professor of contemplative neuroscience, Eastern religion and Yoga studies, this engaging and multimedia course advances a new framework of human consciousness, the powerful role our brain has in the healing process, and of the intimate connection between timeless Yoga teachings and 21stcentury science. This course is ideal for Yoga instructors, medical practitioners and mental health workers wishing to explore both the science and spirituality of healing facilitated by a recognized expert in the field.
