A course designed for health professionals, yoga teachers and serious yoga students
Join us for an introduction to the scientific research on the effects of the practice of meditation on the physiology of the brain and body.
Learn how various breathing techniques affect the heart and the nervous system. And discover the role of meditation on structural and functional changes in the brain and the endocrine and nervous systems. We will explore the importance of the sound produced by mantra and the effects of mantra on mood.
Find out how the effects of meditation counter the stress response and bring lasting change.
This course is designed for participants with and without a scientific background.
