Online CPD - Yoga and the Brain

Tutor: Lina Newstead

Date: 14th March 2021

Time: 10:00 - 16:00

Location: Online

Type of Event: CPD Event

Places Available: 0

Recent neuroscientific findings have identified the brain/body/mind connection and its importance in our general wellbeing, something that yoga has recognised since Patanjali. Current research has shown that yoga practices can keep the brain and body in tune, functioning to the optimum. Yoga teachers are in the perfect place to share these practices with their students. This online workshop will give teachers and serious students an opportunity to learn about how specific yoga practices affect areas of the brain, to experience beneficial practices such as cross crawling, inversions, kapalabhati, chanting and meditation plus group work focussed on integrating these into lesson plans effectively, sharing best practice and ideas. 


Lina believes that yoga can be practised from the cradle and well into old age with appropriate adaptation. Her yoga teaching style is inclusive and therapeutic, emphasising breath, relaxation and meditation. As a BWY DCT she has trained teachers but also continued her studies further, qualifying in Buddhist Meditation, Mindfulness, Yoga for Healthy Backs and Gentle Years Yoga.
