Brain Yoga

Keep your brain fit and prevent memory loss

Are you overworked and overstressed? Perhaps you’re finding it difficult to remember the countless details in your life. While there are plenty of games, brain teasers, books and websites to help you stay sharp and improve your memory, there’s another way to keep your brain fit that goes back hundreds of years. It’s called “brain yoga” and it’s one of the latest techniques in mind maintenance.
 
Dr. Dharma Singh Khalsa is president and medical director of the Alzheimer’s Research & Prevention Foundation. He’s a mind-body physician and advocates a lifestyle approach to help prevent and treat memory loss. His book Brain Longevity has attracted many supporters who are seeking to nourish the brain through meditation.
 
My Generation met with the Dr. Dharma to unlock the secrets to brain fitness.
