Workshop mit Ruthi
Samstag, 3. Februar 2018, 14:00 – 17:00 Uhr
Yoga for your brain?
What does brain science really tells us about the impact of yoga on cognition and brain capacity?
In this workshop you will learn about how yoga actually changes the brain, as shown by scientific research. We will start by reviewing the basics of brain anatomy and the methods used in brain research. This will be followed by a close examination of the cognitive and neuronal changes brought about by yoga practice, with a special focus on meditation and pranayama. We will end by discussing how specific asanas affect the brain.
The workshop is suitable for anyone who is interested to know how yoga practice affects his brain. It is especially beneficial for teachers who want to know which information they can accurately share with their students.
This workshop will be in English with some German-translation possible on demand.
