While the benefits of cardiovascular exercise have been widely researched and promoted, the benefits of slow, meditative yoga are not as well studied or understood. In this class Kristine Kaoverii Weber, yoga therapist and founder of Subtle® Yoga, will discuss recent scientific findings that suggest important neurobiologic benefits of regularly practicing slow, mindful movement that differ from those of hard exercise. These benefits include reducing inflammation, promoting nervous system resilience, and encouraging neuroplasticity. The practice style can be tailored to support different body types/physical abilities and those with chronic health challenges. *Note: While there will be a demonstration of some sitting poses, this class will be a lecture that focuses on the science of how yoga benefits different body types and chronic pain.*
Kristine Kaoverii Weber, MA, c-IAYT, eRYT500 has been studying yoga and holistic healing for 30 years, teaching since 1995, and training yoga teachers since 2003.
