Transformative Approaches to Supporting Meaningful Living

August 12 and 13, 2018
St. Michaels Harbour Inn, Marina & Spa

The word ‘yoga’ is derived from the Sanskrit word for ‘union’–meaning a united body, mind and soul. In modern medicine and neurology, we now know that the ultimate therapeutic approach is one built on an integrated mind, body and brain connection. No longer considered an alternative therapy, yoga is now recognized as a mainstream method of rehabilitation for a wide variety of conditions including:

  • neurological and neurodegenerative diseases
  • chronic pain
  • fibromyalgia
  • ADHD
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • multiple sclerosis
  • stroke
  • migraines
  • anxiety
  • depression

This unique workshop offers a full curriculum based on anatomy and chemistry of the brain and neurology of various diseases, combined with the ancient philosophies of yoga and the mind-body connection. Join us to learn practical strategies for using yoga postures, breathing and mindfulness to treat common brain disorders and create meaningful change in the lives of loved ones and caregivers.
