How can Yoga help your brain function and corporate productivity?

The volume of scientific evidence on the benefits of Yoga keeps mounting day by day.

Joint studies using MRI techniques to scan the brain by University of Illinois and Wayne State University in USA has found that Yoga enhances many of the same brain structures & functions that benefit from aerobic exercise. Professor Jessica Damoiseaux says “we see increases in the volume of the hippocampus with Yoga practice” . our Hippocampus is involved in memory processing and is known to shrink with age. It is also the structure that is first affected in Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease as reported by Prof. Gothe in the journal of Brain Plasticity.

This study involved Yoga asanas( postures) breathing and meditation practice in the Hatha Yoga tradition.

There is  always a yoga practice available to you, no matter your age, nor your physical limitations.

Meditation is an ancient practice that is one of the eight limbs of  Yoga. Meditation Practices help you to first become aware of what’s going on in your mind and then to tame your mind and bring it under the control of your intention. Instead of the mind running you, you run your mind. This gives you the ability to stay centred and focused regardless of the circumstances. Yoga and meditation help you cope with your stress caused by the challenges of life. Regular practice of Yoga help you to improve you mental and physical health while maintaining your integrity and peace of mind. They increase self-awareness and self-actualisation, by enabling you to understand your feelings and focus on a positive outlook, manage your energy, and better understand your inner-self. They also help you become aware of your strengths, weaknesses, and limitations.

These findings are significant because be it in a corporation, government department or at family level or personal level, Yoga practices can help improve the health and brain function leading to better productivity, ability to handle stress, less disruptions to careers and ability to live independently even at old age. If you need guidance on Yoga for stress, Meditation practices or just looking for Beginners Yoga Sessions, Seniors Yoga, Yoga for experienced practitioners , Corporate Yoga for your employees, or workshops on topics related to Health, Wellbeing and Nutrition, at Sanatana Yoga Academy we can formulate customised plans for you and deliver them as Live Yoga sessions or Online Yoga sessions and Online Workshops.  Visit us on or email us  at or call our Founder Narendra  on +61438496040.
