Minded Yoga / Yoga Therapy for the Mind is a unique blend of yoga, psychotherapy, neuroscience and mindfulness which can help you learn how to use your body and breath to retrain your brain and nervous system.
Sometimes, no matter how much we want to think ourselves as well or talk our way out of troubles, we just can’t do it. 80% of the messages between body and brain go from body to brain. Working safely, in an embodied way, we can use movement and breath as well as our minds to retrain our brains and change the way we feel.
Neuroscience researcher Dr Chris Streeter found that an hour of yoga increased GABA, the brain’s major inhibitory neurotransmitter that was mimicked in drugs like Xanax.
