Researchers at LONI (Laboratory of Neuro Imaging) are studying brain plasticity. They are recuiting yoga practitioners
who will undergo an intensive 4-week yoga teacher training (200 hours)*.
Yogis will be asked to complete 2 brief questionnaires (each about 5 minutes) and undergo a 20-minute MRI brain scan during their 1st visit. During their 2nd and 3rd visits,
they will undergo a 20 minute brain scan only.
The 1st visit needs to occur 4 weeks before the start of the teacher training.
*NOTE: LONI is not offering the yoga teacher training. This study is only suitable for people who are planning to participate in such a training regardless of this study.
