The Science Of Yoga: Yoga Research, Epigenetics and Neuroplasticity
Friday, March 23
6:30pm - 9:00pm
Yoga is an ancient behavioral practice that allows for the development of the skills of mind-body awareness or mindfulness, self-regulation of internal physiological and psychological state, and physical fitness.  Yoga is becoming increasingly popular as a behavioral strategy for the promotion and maintenance of health and wellness, as preventive medicine, and also as an adjunct therapeutic intervention.  Application of yoga interventions provide psychophysiological and clinical outcomes that are not currently readily available within the repertoire of modern medicine, including improvements in physical flexibility and self-efficacy, respiratory function, stress reduction and coping, resilience to stress, emotion regulation, mind-body awareness and mindfulness, subjective well-being, quality of life, and life meaning and purpose.  Many of these outcomes underlie the behavioral and lifestyle-related risk factors for chronic non communicable diseases, which are reaching epidemic proportions and represent the greatest burden in mortality and cost in modern healthcare.  This presentation will overview the scientific evidence on the underlying mechanisms of yoga practice supporting the rationale for these applications of yoga, and will also review the published clinical trial evidence for its efficacy in wellness, prevention and therapy for a variety of common medical and psychological conditions.

$45 ($55 after January 22)

The Science and Practice of Yoga for Stress and Resilience
Saturday, March 24
1:00pm - 5:00pm
This workshop will begin by defining stress and providing an understanding of the physiology and psychology of chronic stress, stress management and stress tolerance.  The current behavioral and psychological strategies and techniques for managing chronic stress will also be reviewed.  The role of yoga and mind-body techniques as stress management interventions will be discussed in detail from the perspective of the physiological and psychological mechanisms involved, including a review of the published research on the efficacy of yoga practices for stress.  Practice sessions of a number of Kundalini yoga techniques believed to be effective for stress management will also be included.

$75 ($85 after January 22)


The Science and Practice of Yoga for Sleep and Insomnia
Sunday, March 25
1:00pm - 5:00pm
There is an increasing recognition and knowledge about the value of sleep in both physiology, psychology and human performance.  There is emerging evidence of the negative impact of restricting one’s duration of night-time sleep, which is an increasing trend in modern society.  Furthermore, there is also an increasing burden and prevalence of sleep disturbances and disorders, including sleep apnea and especially both acute and chronic insomnia.  Chronic insomnia is believed to be strongly influenced by stress and arousal.  Behavioral treatments for insomnia have been well-validated and there is strong research evidence demonstrating the high effectiveness of yoga for alleviating stress and arousal.  However, these approaches, which are free of the side effects and other complications with sleeping pills, are not well known and poorly implemented.  This workshop will describe the characteristics and importance of sleep to mental and physical health and performance, the underlying causes of insomnia, and will overview the well-known behavioral treatments for insomnia, and provide specific yoga practices which may be beneficial for this disorder and for improving sleep quality in general.

$75 ($85 after January 22)
