Event description


Explore the science of mind-body connection through mindful movement, qigong, and yoga!

The benefits of yoga for health and well-being have been known for generations, yet science is only beginning to catch up. Recent years have seen a surge of research exploring the effects of yoga’s core tenets – mindful, controlled movement and breath – on mood, stress and anxiety levels, bodily awareness, and even attention, chronic pain, or heart rate variability. What yogis knew for generations has been true all along: yoga carries a host of positive benefits for body and mind.

In this workshop, we will marry theory with practice to explore the science behind the mind-body connection and how it can be positively affected by mindful, controlled movement and breath.

Join us for practical sessions with Brighton’s own yoga teacher Alexa Garside, incorporating yoga, qigong (a calmer form of exercise combining movement, breath and meditation) and breathing techniques, and find out about the science of how they can affect your body and mind.
