Brisbane masterclass: Yoga, meditation and longevity June 2018

2 June, 2018
(Registration open till 1 Jun)

Yoga, meditation and longevity

Dru Yoga and Meditation Masterclass led by senior Dru international tutor Noelene Francis

In March 2018 Noelene presented in the Papers & symposium stream at the Yoga Australia 2018 conference in Melbourne on 'How yoga and meditation can improve your longevity - harnessing new research.' 

One of the most exciting pieces of research over recent years shows that part of our chromosomes, the very end tips, called the telomeres profoundly influence our physical and mental health. If our telomeres are long, we will live longer, and have less illness. Shorter telomeres are associated with tissue degeneration leading to our cells aging prematurely.

Mindful yoga movement and breathwork, meditation and chanting are among the activities that have been proven to create an environment where telomeres can grow longer again!  In short, yoga and meditation positively influence our cellular biology and actually have the power to boost our longevity.

In this masterclass you’ll learn how your regular Dru yoga practice can positively influence the production of telomerase, the enzyme responsible for repair and renewal of our telomeres.

I not only enjoyed it, I loved it! Thank you. It really helped me to feel my core stability muscles. I'm looking forward training them ;-)

Thank you, this was lovely. It was great to have your teaching in my home! Great production also - good picture, good sound, easy to fast forward and great that I could see what was happening as I fast forwarded so I knew when to stop. I also like the way Dru Online is bringing us more specific subjects like this one, that before we have only seen in the workbooks. Thank you.
