Yoga, meditation and healthy brain aging

I found it positively refreshing that SharpBrains has included an interview by Alvaro Fernandez, SharpBrain’s CEO with Dharma Singh Khalsa of the Alzheimer’s Research & Prevention Foundation on their website:

The interview is short, to the point and interesting. Here’s one question and answer from that interview:

Fernandez: “Please tell us about your interest in applied brain science. What areas are you most interested in? What motivated you to pursue work in your field?” 

Khalsa: “What interests me the most is how life style influences brain health during aging. What motivated me was my life­long interest in holistic medicine and my 35 years of practice and study of stress, meditation, and memory. I’ve looked at it from both sides; I’ve studied mind/body medicine with Dr. Herbert Benson at Harvard and Kundalini Yoga with Yogi Bhajan.”

Khalsa is one of the speakers in SharpBrain’s upcoming “Virtual Summit.” Here’s a link to the summit’s speaker list - And here’s a link to the Khalsa’s Alzheimer’s Research & Prevention Foundation:
