Why do sad songs, just like challenging yoga postures, make us happy and comfort us? How do music and yoga positively influence our brain? How do different tempos and postures affect our cognitive skills and emotional reactions? Can music help us focus in meditation?
We often talk of yoga as the path to understanding one’s true self, but we hear little about the incredible neurochemistry occurring inside of our heads. In this groundbreaking workshop Derek uses Flow Play, a national yoga, music, and neuroscience program he created for Equinox Fitness, as a foundation for explaining how music and yoga affect your nervous system. After a Vinyasa practice and meditation (complete with soundtrack), Derek will explain what happened inside of your head. An informative workshop for teachers as well as enlightening experience for any fan of music and yoga, this workshop will deepen your understanding of the beautiful marriage of sound and movement.
