Bring serenity into your busy life with scientifically proven healing practices.
In our hectic world, we need tools to help us weather life’s storms. Yoga, mindfulness, and meditation are some of the most powerful tools you can wield—and their benefits are backed by neuroscience. Using new technology in brain imaging, researchers have confirmed the ability of these practices to improve your neurobiology and overall wellness.
Through this innovative 12-lecture audio course, you will find inner calm and gain a scientific understanding of your brain. Your guide, Dr. M. Mala Cunningham, is a licensed counselor and clinical professor at the University of Virginia. A leading expert in mind-body medicine, she draws on cutting-edge neuroscience research, as well as more than 35 years of experience teaching yoga.
Dr. Cunningham begins with the foundational concepts of yoga and mindfulness theory. You will then explore the mechanisms and effects of stress and examine your emotional blueprint. After looking into how to activate happy hormones and practice meaningful self-assessment, you’ll dive deeper into the intersection of neuroscience, yoga, and mindfulness. You’ll also consider communication patterns, intuition, and formulas for healing.
Each lecture contains strategies and activities for stress reduction, emotional resilience, and self-care. You are sure to return to these healing exercises and guided meditations again and again, leading you to deeper levels of peace and happiness.
