About the event
What are the effects of yoga on the brain?
Yoga has been shown to enhance mood, memory and emotional regulation, while also reducing stress hormone levels and some inflammatory markers in the blood in adults. Come learn more about how the mindful movement practice that you love might be helping more than just your body and hear a little about our exploration of yoga as a nonpharmaceutical intervention for emerging adults with ADD/ADHD. The session will combine explanations of neuroscience research, brain areas, and movement practices and be led by Flex Yoga Owner Emily Moorefield Mariola and College of Wooster Neuroscience Professor Amy Jo Stavnezer.
