About the course: An in depth look at the stress response, and the evidence based data on Kundalini Yoga on stress regulation, tolerance, and resilience. We’ll discuss what stress is, the physiological mechanisms that are involved, as well as the research on the impact of yoga on stress, and how this can inform your students when presenting at teacher trainings. We’ll also discuss ways you or your colleagues can get involved in research, and support the underlying science of Kundalini Yoga, and Meditation if that is an area of interest.
About the presenter: Gabrielle started her journey into the world of mental health at the University of Durham, an Ivy league school in England, graduating with a first class honors degree in Applied Psychology.
Since then her love for understanding the science of how the mind, and body connect has led her to study the ancient practice of yoga and meditation with world renowned teachers.
Gabrielle’s passion for psychology, yoga and meditation has fused all of these elements together. Today she finds herself teaching in many different environments from mental health facilitates, the corporate world, universities, nationwide assisted living homes, as well as a Special Forces Unit. Gabrielle also has a keen interest in research, and sits on the Kundalini Research Institute’s Research Advisory Committee, and is working on researching the stress response in different demographics, and health conditions.
After working in different in-patient and out-patient programming for mental health, and being involved in different teacher training programs, Gabrielle identified a key missing link in the current infrastructure of how we treat mental health: Education! Gabrielle’s vision is to provide a new global framework for how we view and treat mental health, by delivering an integrative approach in empowering the individual in understanding, and supporting their mental health, surrounding three key principles: Education, Experience, and Evolution.
