24-03-2019 12:00:00 24-03-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York NeuroYoga 2019 at the Dharma Yoga Center What happens to the brain during and after yoga? What are the biological changes that make yoga so effective in brining about "radiant health, mental sharpness, and peace of mind," as yoga master Sri Dharma Mittra likes to say? For Brain Awareness Week 2019, our March 24th event will be addressing these questions from the perspective of neuroscientists who practice yoga, starting at 3 PM that Sunday afternoon! We will begin with a yoga practice including asana (the postures), pranayama (the breathing exercises), meditation, and relaxation. The practice will be followed by a lecture and discussion of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology as it relates to yoga. You will even have the chance to participate in an experiment during class, which will give you real time feedback on the functions of your brain! Please arrive EARLY (2:30 PM) to participate in the experiment. All levels of yoga practice (including beginners) and all levels of science training (including children) are welcome to attend. The cost is $10 per person, which must be paid at the Dharma Yoga Center. Please wear clothes you will be comfortable exercising in. Led by Jonathan Rosenthal, medical student at NYU School of Medicine going into neurology.
