Learn About Practices for Brain Health




The Yoga Research Society and Marcus-Brind Center of Integrative Medicine will present The Brain, on April 29, at Thomas Jefferson University, in Philadelphia, at Medical Yoga 2018. Vijayendra Pratap, Ph.D., will present the Classical Yoga for Mental Health practical and discussion in the morning, and Mark Mattson, Ph.D., will give his presentation, Intermittent Fasting for Brain Health, in the afternoon.

Swâmî Kuvalayânandaji pioneered a rational, scientific approach to the understanding of yoga beginning in 1924. His work has helped make yoga accessible to sincere students and researchers throughout the world. The Yoga Research Society builds on this tradition. Under the direction of Pratap, the society has helped to integrate yoga techniques and principles into Western medical theory and practice through research and education.

The Marcus-Brind Center’s physicians have extensive experience in the integration of conventional medicine with complementary approaches such as nutritional, herbal, homeopathic and mind-body therapies. They share the philosophy that illness and healing involve all aspects of ourselves; biological, psychological, social and spiritual. They believe that each person can be empowered to bring greater wellness into his or her own life.
