Our theme this year is an investigation into the neurophysiological mechanisms which support effective yoga and meditation practices. The goals of this two-day conference are to present current scientific evidence in a rigorous and accessible manner and to increase interactions between yogis and scientists. In addition to lectures, participants will be lead in yoga and mindfulness practices relevant to the theories and studies presented. A panel and an evening social event will provide opportunities to interact with the scientists who are presenting.
Dr. Gail Parker will be presenting on "Restorative Yoga for Healing Ethnic and Race Based Stress and Trauma", and she will facilitate a restorative yoga practice.
