How Yoga Affects Your Brain

Ever had one of those days when frustration turns into anger and you fly off the handle, even though you know you shouldn’t?

Of course, you have. We all have those days from time to time. But unfortunately, few things can wreck such havoc on our relationships as those outbursts of anger and frustration. If this goes on for extended periods of time, it can take a tremendous toll on our life, work, and relationships.

All too often, says B. Grace Bullock, there is one simple reason that we tend to overreact. When we’re under too much stress, the body gets stuck in fight or flight mode. This leaves us anxious, irritable and angry—or depressed and exhausted.

In this interview, Dr. Bullock shares insights into how specific yogic tools can help us reverse this vicious cycle. Once we learn how, yoga can help us rewire the brain and the nervous system to diffuse the stress response, and develop greater mindfulness and control of our life. Dr. Bullock discusses the program she has used successfully in her own yoga therapy practice to teach clients the essential techniques and tools to help reduce stress and reactivity, and in turn develop a more easeful approach to the challenges of everyday living.
