Mind-body practices and the neuro-psychology of wellbeing
In recent years, mind-body practices such as yoga and meditation have become increasingly popular in western society. The current chapter discusses how such practices may contribute to psychological and physiological aspects of wellbeing. Supporting research evidence and neurophysiological theories that may explain these effects will be reviewed. Practical applications of mind-body therapies with a focus on breathing practices for stress reduction and recovery from mass disasters will be presented.
