Last May, I was tasked to design a foundation yoga module for kids and in the process, one of the discoveries I made was brain yoga. This work which I took up created a deeper understanding of another dimension of yoga and opened up a new possibility for me to help children with special needs.
What is Brain Yoga or Yoga for the brain?
Yoga for the brain is a set of postures or movements designed to integrate the left and right side functions of the brain and break our mental patterns or unconscious habitual way of responding to life. It also encourages the development of new brain grooves so that we start experiencing new possibilities. The activities are rooted in ancient Vedic practices that have been refined over time.
