The Neuroscience of Yoga:
Yoga As Psychotherapy

with Dr. Chris Walling
Saturday, Feb. 13th 2:30-6 p.m.
Pure East

Since the days of Freud, research into the mind-body relationship has come a long way. Studies show that not only are your mental health and mood dependent in large part on physical factors like exercise, but also unchecked stress, anxiety and depression can affect physical health, increasing blood pressure, heart disease and even risk of death. With the advent of sophisticating imaging technologies, the neurobiological revolution has revolutionized our understanding of the mind body connection, and psychotherapy has changed by abandoning so called “talking cures” and bringing the body into the sense of mental health interventions. Join International Yoga therapist and body psychologist Dr. Chris Walling as he summarizes the latest cutting edge research into the psychological impact of yoga on the brain.
