Body & Brain yoga training is designed to develop mastership of the body and mind through physical movements, breathwork, and energy meditation. In our practice, we regard the brain as the central control system for our body and its energy system. Our training is organized into four components.
The first component is Meridian Stretching. Used primarily as preparation for more intense activities, it loosens the upper body and strengthens the lower body. It uses stretches to relax the muscles and open the joints for increased strength and flexibility.
The second step is Meditative Breathing, which combines sequential static postures with focused breathing. This facilitates energy accumulation and circulation throughout the body, including the meridians and chakras.
Third is our signature Tai Chi training, which combines Eastern Energy Principles and traditional Korean internal martial arts. Practitioners train the basic foot and hand movements of Tai Chi and learn to strengthen the body's energy system through proper breathing and mental concentration. The discipline required by the training relaxes the brain and develops body awareness and coordination. It is effective for enhancing the mind/body connection and helps develop balance and physical power.
The fourth component is Energy Meditation, which brings stillness of mind and increases sensitivity to Ki energy. As our energy sense grows, the mind/body connection increases. In this deep meditative state, our body goes to the rest and digest state, relieving the mind and body of our stress. This inner peace is what often attracts people to Body & Brain. We invite you to find your serenity at our Ramsey Body & Brain Yoga center (Bergen County, New Jersey). We are currently offering online and in the studio classes in yoga, tai chi, and meditation.
