Yoga & Brain Health - in there any evidence?


Yoga & Brain health - is there any evidence?šŸ§ 

.

šŸ‘‰Are any of your friends in love with yoga?

šŸ‘‰Do they constantly suggest that you should start practicing yoga as well?

.

Sorry to inform you, but Yoga can be beneficial for your brain health. No excuses, time to visit yoga

class.šŸ§˜ā€ā™€ļø

.

A systematic review of the current literature showed that there is a positive effect of yoga practice

on the structure and function of several brain areas like:

āœ”ļøthe hippocampus (has a major role in learning and memory)

āœ”ļøamygdala (has a role in our perception of fear and other emotions)

āœ”ļøthe prefrontal cortex (it is the source of complex behaviors, planning)

āœ”ļøcingulate cortex (is involved with emotion formation processing, learning, and memory )

.

There is also early and promising evidence that yoga practice can modify brain networks including

the default mode network (DMN). DMN is usually more active when a person is not focused on a

specific task, also when somebody is in a state of self-conscious reflection. Yoga may lead to

changes in functional connectivity inside DMN, which in result may increase present-moment

awareness. Being present in a moment means less rumination about the past or worrying about the future. That's why yoga practice can be recommended to people suffering from depressionšŸ˜¢.

.

Behavioural mind-body interventions like yoga also have cognitive benefits. It can be an effective program for older adults who exhibit signs of cognitive decline.

.

Nonetheless, it's good to move your body!
