Great post Lone. There's a lot of info. around now about retraining our nervous systems/brains but this is the first I've seen referring specifically to yoga. What amazes me is that in ancient times creators of yoga poses made these connections.

Thanks for the post, Lone. I do know that when I miss my Yoga session, short as it is, I don't feel and think as well as I should. Now it's more clear why.

Yoga helps me with my back problem and my mind; I love that time just for me and my body. Thanks for sharing!

This article is so important. Thanks so much for sharing. Yoga is not some exotic ritual or synonym for pretzel. I encourage everyone to try it. Please explore the whole philosophy--don't just try the exercises/poses (asana). It has been truly life changing for me.
