Yoga and Yoga Therapy: The Science and the Biomedical Research
Friday, March 8
6:30pm - 9:00pm
Yoga is an ancient behavioral practice that allows for the development and enhancement of mind body skills and behavioral factors including physical functioning, awareness/mindfulness and self-regulation of internal physiological and psychological states and life meaning and purpose.  In easy-to-understand language, this presentation will review some of the basic science underlying the psychophysiology of yoga practices and describe some of the cutting edge biomedical research studies with relevance to yoga, including research on psychology, physiology, molecular biology and brain imaging.  Models of psychophysiological mechanisms of action and future areas of research will be presented. We will also overview the significant research on the benefits of yoga as a therapeutic intervention for psychological conditions, as a treatment for medical disorders, and as a preventive medicine practice for maintaining health, wellness, well-being, and quality of life.

$85 ($95 after January 22)

Yoga for Anxiety Disorders: Scientific Rationale, Research and Practice
Saturday, March 9
1:00pm - 5:00pm
The experience of anxiety is becoming common in modern society, as are clinically significant anxiety disorders.  Although treatment for anxiety is most often in the form of prescription pharmaceuticals, there are well-known behavioral practices that are effective in improving anxiety and in treating anxiety disorders. Furthermore, there is growing research evidence that contemplative practices such as meditation and yoga may be effective coping strategies for anxiety. This workshop will describe the biomedical characteristics of anxiety and anxiety disorders, the known behavioral treatments, and the research evidence for the efficacy of yoga.  Specific yoga techniques for anxiety will also be practiced.

There is also a credible scientific and clinical rationale for the application of yoga and meditation practices in this field along with preliminary and growing research evidence that such contemplative practices are clinically effective.  This workshop will describe the biomedical characteristics of addictions and substance abuse, the known behavioral treatments, and the research evidence for the efficacy of yoga. Specific Kundalini yoga techniques for addictive behaviors will also be practiced.
