Refine the Source to Change Outcomes

Since the 1980s, mindfulness, and yoga as a component of that practice, has been studied both in medical and mental health settings. Since 2000, the explosion of more rigorous research has provided strong evidence that mindful practices, even in short increments, can change the way the brain fires, offering many benefits such as:

  • Increased self-awareness and self-regulation
  • Reduced behavior problems & enhanced executive functioning
  • Lowered stress & blood pressure (heart disease is on the rise in children)
  • Improved sleep
  • Support of treatment of depression, anxiety and eating disorders
  • Added means for trauma healing
  • Enhanced communication & response flexibility

When we change the way the brain fires, we can change thought
patterns and behavior.

  • Stress, depression & well-being
  • Attention, behavior & ADHD
  • Executive function and memory
  • Anxiety & addiction
