The last 10 years has seen an explosion in research studies that confirm and demystify what the ancient yogis discovered: Yoga works! In this workshop, we explore, with scientific explanations, several practices that have proven benefits, such as building bones, lowering blood pressure, growing new grey matter, decreasing inflammation and stiffness in the joints, deactivating the fear center in the brain, regulating the sleep-wake cycle, improving memory and problem-solving, alleviating low back pain, activating a healing state, and so much more. The workshop includes physical postures and movements, three important breathing practices and three
easy and transformative meditation practices. Both young and old can receive the benefits. Many of the students who have been following these teachings are in their seventies and eighties, and claim the practices make them feel 20 years younger.
