Neurobiology of Yoga

By David Vago, Ph.D. with Yoga Medicine

The following course will provide you with the latest scientific understanding of the brain mechanisms by which self-transformation is possible through yoga practice. Contributions from core components of yoga practice, including postures, breath regulation, ethics, and meditation, are all described in a comprehensive conceptual model supported by underlying neurobiological processes. Neuroplasticity in brain networks of self processing are described as a result of continued practice – contributing to adaptive mental habits and management of stress. The course concludes with summarizing four primary factors that contribute to self-transformation, including an emphasis on body awareness (interoception), perceptual inference, neurovisceral integration, and increased inhibitory control over cognitive, emotional, autonomic, and behavioral output.
