Yoga, Neuroplasticity and the Brain   

9:30am – 5:00pm with a one hour lunch

In yoga the deepest pulse of life in the body is known as the kundalini, a current of neurological force that flows through the central channel of the spine. The language of yoga describing the force (shakti) of the central nervous system bears close resemblance to contemporary research on the brain, brain stem and spinal cord. This course explores how yoga practice including asana, pranayama, yoga nidra and meditative states impact the vast neuronal assemblies in the brain. Through practice and study, we will see how light, image, vibration, loving awareness and finely articulated movement help rewire and heal the brain.  We practice the SATYA movements (Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga) in order to generate more expansive and finely tuned brain maps.  We will compare and contrast descriptions of the cranial chakras with lower (reptilian), middle (mammalian) and upper (neo-cortex) brains.
This 1-day training forms part of the 45-hour SATYA 1 training, the first course of its kind being offered outside of the U.S. To become certified you will be required to complete the 32-hour Intensive running April 22-26, 2018 – Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement. In addition, there will be some self study to make up the full 45-hours. There will be no charge for the self study element.
