Many people think meditation means sitting down and doing nothing.  This is not true.  Meditation is an active training of the mind to increase awareness. 

 

Studies show…

  • Meditation increases cortical thickness in the hippocampus (area that governs learning and memory).

  • Meditation decreases cell volume in the amygdala (responsible for fear, anxiety, and stress).

  • Meditation protects the brain by increasing protective tissues.

  • Meditation can help Seniors feel less isolated and lonely (2 feelings which can increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s.)

  • Meditation reduces the stress hormone cortisol, which has been known to increase the risk of developing dementia.

 

You are invited to join our 6-week Meditation for Memory Series.  During this series, you will learn easy to practice breathing techniques to calm the mind, a simple yogic meditation called Kirtan Kriya (recommended by Alzheimer’s Research & Prevention Foundation) and enjoy a 30 to 35 minute guided iRest® Yoga Nidra Meditation to improve memory.  In addition, you will receive access to a recorded iRest® Yoga Nidra Meditation to practice at home.
