Talk at the Yoga and Science Conference, Austin
February 29, 2020
This conference presents scientific information as it relates to the practice of yoga. My talk will discuss the role of self-compassion in creating a kinder and more connected way of inhabiting our minds and our bodies. It will discuss research on the health benefits of self- compassion, including yoga as a way to enhance self-compassion. It will also compare self- compassion to self-esteem, arguing that self-compassion provides a more stable and less contingent sense of self-worth. Finally, a brief self-compassion practice will be taught for use in daily life. For more information, go to yogaandscience.com
