Yoga for Your Brain with Jackie Shaffer (Arlington)

  • Sun & Moon Yoga Studio - Arlington 3811 Lee Highway Arlington, VA, 22207 United States (map)

Advances in science have completely changed what we understand of the brain. As yoga practioners, let's make use of this. We can select yoga poses, breathing and meditations directly for their  effect on the nervous system and our mind/body unity. This workshop practice will be well rounded, for flexibility, strength, and ease of being. We'll focus on yoga to support health of the nervous system, including meditation. We'll discuss current research in topics such as brain plasticity. Other movement modalities  -- qi gong, Feldenkrais and energy medicine will be introduced. For this workshop, all levels of experience are welcome
