Yoga, Neuroplasticity & the Science of Rewiring the Brain

 

Decades ago, researchers assumed that brain development stopped when we reached our twenties. However, more recent studies have made it clear that our brains continue to develop and mature even up into our forties.  And, the brain’s ability to adapt - also known as neuroplasticity - may extend well beyond that. Now, with a developing understanding of neuroplasticity—the brain’s ability to re-wire itself—researchers are looking at a possibility yogis have assured us of since ancient times: we have the power to change at any age.

In this talk, Subtle Yoga founder Kristine Kaoverii Weber offers insight into the exciting science of neuroplasticity, and the light it casts on yogic techniques and how they work.

Kaoverii shares some  surprising research findings on just how quickly meditation techniques can lead to structural changes in the brain. She also sheds light on how yoga can help us overcome the brain’s in-built “negativity bias,” and highlights the contrasting benefits of different types of meditation.  She reveals how storytelling can affect our brains, including how we can use stories to also affect our production of what some researchers refer to as the “love molecule”

Learn about the little-discussed intimate relationship between Eastern philosophy and Western psychology, and the ways in which modern neuroscience is starting to explain what the yogis of old were talking about.
