That the many benefits of yoga last a long time after you have rolled up your mat, is now a scientific fact! Fascinating stuff!

The neuroscience behind Yoga can help explain why regular Yoga is so effective in reducing stress and creating balance in the body. It can also help you deepen your Yoga practice and increase focus on elements that you might otherwise overlook.

Dr. Mithu Storoni, a medical doctor, neuroscientist, and yoga teacher, explains the fundamental principles of the Science behind Yoga and Stress in a straightforward and easy to understand way in this short 10-minute film from UPLIFT. There is something in this for everybody from the dedicated Yogi or Yogini, to the casual practitioner. From the scientifically minded, to the layperson, The Science behind Yoga And Stress covers the basics (and more) of making your Yoga practice work for your brain, so your brain can work better for you.

Mithu Storoni MD, PhD is a medical doctor, writer, yoga teacher, science nerd, blogger and all round brain enthusiast dedicated to defeating stress.
