How to Change Your Mind: Neuroscience & Yoga
How can we use the insights of scientific research to enhance our yoga practice? Exploring the mind-body connection and understanding our thoughts, emotions, and behavior in the context of neuroscience can shed new light on the power and potential of yoga practice to affect every aspect of our mind, even the unconscious, or “autopilot,” functions. In this special livestream conversation, two core faculty members—integrative physician Dr. Theresa Oswald and experienced yoga teacher Sandra Anderson— engage in a lively discussion of yoga in the context of the findings of neuroscience. They cover concepts like the negativity bias, the vagal brake, and the default mode network, using the framework of the triune brain model, which divides the brain’s complex functions into three categories: base survival, emotional, and executive. Discover how the intersection of yoga and neuroscience can inspire you to awaken your full potential and become more completely and joyfully alive!
