The Neuroscience and Yoga Teacher Training Certification program will be held in person at Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville from July 14 to 18, 2022. The training is led by M. Mala Cunningham, Ph.D., C-IAYT, an educator and leader in the field of Medical Yoga. This training is for Yoga teachers, therapists, and health professionals.

Neuroscience can explain how and why Yoga works for healing the body, mind, and emotions. In this certification training, Dr. Cunningham will share with you some powerful techniques and strategies for increasing healing, happiness, and peace; and conversely, you will learn how to reduce negative emotions, thoughts, and behaviors that tend to take over our lives.

Researchers are now able to understand how Yoga and mindfulness practices can help us to heal, restore vibrancy, and increase resiliency. Over the last twenty years, research has proven that Yoga and mindfulness techniques can increase empathy, compassion, and optimism, and can significantly reduce negative emotions such as chronic stress, anxiety, and depression. We now know that certain Yoga and mindfulness practices can have a positive impact on our neurobiology and our neuropathways. Learn more about the program and register here.
