Yoga Practice to Address the Next Pandemic: Mental Health

We are in the middle of a global pandemic but another one looms on the horizon – the growing issue of mental and behavioral health. A robust and expanding body of research demonstrates the efficacy of yoga for improving mental/behavioral health, including research demonstrating the neurobiological benefits of this ancient practice.

These practices are:

  • Low-risk
  • Person-centered
  • Affordable
  • Self-care and lifestyle oriented
  • Scale-able (and adaptable to meet the needs of populations, not just individuals)

During this presentation, participants will learn how slow, mindful yoga offers tools for self-regulation, grounding, empowerment, and, ultimately, gaining a deeper sense of meaning, purpose, and identity. With minimal training, athletic or physical capacity, most people can learn some of these safe skills.
