Emerging research made accessible by technology such as fMRI has identified emotional circuits in the brain. These circuits correlate with the ancient yogic descriptions of the nine rasas (core emotions). This workshop will provide an introduction to basic psychology/neurobiology of emotion, yoga, and your brain.  We will present practical yogic strategies including pranayama, mudra, mantra, and asana to bring commonly imbalanced emotions into harmony, and explore why yoga has such positive effects on the nervous system.
