Both “meditation” and “yoga” are buzz words in pop health circles, but both are actually categories of mind-body practices - not specific practices. Not all mind-body practices are the same, and the specifics are what make all the difference.
The way in which you practice yoga or meditation can lead to profoundly different neurological states, biochemical reactions, and physiological responses. Lucas Rockwood meets with medical doctor, Mithu Storoni, to dive into the science of yoga and stress, and their effects on the brain.
Mithu Storoni MD, PhD is a medical doctor, science nerd, writer, yoga teacher, blogger and all round brain enthusiast dedicated to defeating stress from everyone’s lives. She earned her medical degree from the University of Cambridge and also holds a PhD in Neuro-ophthalmology.
