Alzheimers Prevention & Yoga Therapy Today
Alzheimers Disease is a type of dementia that right now at least 50 million people are living with throughout the world, and an estimated 152 million will be living with the disease by 2050. Until recently, the attitude towards this condition has been one of despair, but research over the last several years has shown that our genes do not have to determine our fate. In fact, the groundbreaking research at some of the top academic medical centers in the world has shown contemplative practices and perspectives can in fact help prevent the onset of Alzheimers disease and promote greater well-being.
Join Dr. Chris Walling, Embodied Philosophy’s Dean of Faculty & Vice President of the Alzheimer’s Research & Prevention Foundation (ARPF) as he presents the latest cutting-edge research from ARPF’s findings on helping people live better, longer.
Dr. Walling will summarize the four pillars of Alzheimer’s Prevention that have proven for nearly three decades to help slow and in some instances reverse brain aging. Come and discuss with him the insights from these advances and the use of evidence-based approaches in yoga therapy that have also shown to reverse cellular aging, improve memory decline, and enhance neuroplasticity. Our With-In attendees will be some of the first to hear of their upcoming research paper on spiritual fitness and yoga, this is not to be missed!
The With-In is a community conversation on a timely topic. Modern spiritual communities, in various ways, are attempting to integrate ancient teachings and traditions with the challenges and questions of modern life. This intersection provokes excitement and curiosity that can be deepened through a co-creative process of community discussion. Questions, confusions, and controversies can arise when one attempts to bridge the ancient and modern. This can be illuminating, but not always comfortable. The With-In provides the community members of Embodied Philosophy an opportunity to learn through the lived experience of others. It is a container through which you can creatively and compassionately sit with these experiences in discussion and community.
