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.comFind out more »
