During Vibhu’s 20-minute weekly sessions, we’ll de-stress, rejuvenate and recharge the brain utilizing a practice inspired by Indian Kirtan Kriya (pronounced KEER-tun KREE-a). Kirtan Kriya has been practiced for thousands of years by people around the world and clinical research has shown that this non-religious practice can be a powerful tool for preventing or stopping Alzheimer’s disease, increasing all aspects of cognitive function, (perception, thinking, reasoning and remembering) and reducing stress levels while improving short term memory.
Myra’s 20-minute weekly sessions offer an eclectic mixture of meditation and breathing practices drawn from the traditions of Buddhist and Mindfulness Meditation. With eight weeks of regular practice, meditation has been proven to cause changes in the pre-frontal cortex, the part of the brain that controls awareness, concentration, and decision making. Meditation also helps break cycles of stress and anxiety, two emotions that can impair brain and body functioning. By learning and practicing these techniques regularly, you will experience greater clarity and increased well-being.
Even those who are not experiencing cognition issues will benefit from these healthful exercises.
Consistent meditation practice can help:
