It is never too early to start an Alzheimer’s prevention plan. This workshop offers some of the latest scientific research on preventive life-style choices that can improve brain health, including: (1) Diet, (2) Stress Management, with Yoga and Meditation, (3) Physical and Mental Exercise, (4) Socialization / Spiritual Fitness. You’ll learn breath, movement, and meditation practices to improve memory, brain function, sleep, and psychological well-being. Curriculum covers exercises for home practice, including the Kirtan Kriya, a 12-minute practice that has been shown in scientific studies to engage the whole brain and increase cerebral brain flow.

Workshop leaders Carol Mermey and Cheryl Kravitz have been certified by the Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation.

For men and women of all ages; new and experienced yoga/meditation students; yoga teachers – not appropriate for those already diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.
