TAMING THE MIND – Dr. Bali
The goal of this workshop is to calm the mind and escape from our stressors, from the constant state of the fight or flight response and into the relaxation response. Through the efforts of each asana, a meditation in motion, is where we shift from thinking to feeling. Thinking consumes energy and feeling conserves it. Too much thinking is causing a brain drain where our minds are literally being fried with stress. With the relaxation response our stress hormones begin to dissolve and are replaced with happy hormones; dopamines, melatonin, serotonin thus allowing our immune system to function at peak efficiency, instantly writing a prescription for whatever might ail us. As we go through the asanas and deep breathing our guts are being decongested and metabolic wastes are being dislodged helping to cleanse our bodies and at the same time our circulation is being promoted to help nourish, rebuild, renew & repair ourselves from the inside out.
This is a Hatha based practice and is for all levels as it is encouraged to listen to your body and go at your own pace.
Dr. Madan Bali’s mission is to spread joy, peace and bliss through the teachings of yoga. Through his research and training he is actively engaged in compiling proven methodologies and breakthrough evidence about the therapeutic benefits of yoga, which includes medical and clinical studies.
