The Life Changing Magic of Yoga + ADHD
Here’s what Taucha had to say about how the practice of yoga helped her thrive.
“The more I spent time in yoga, the more balanced I felt, no matter how, crazy school was. … I wasn’t always scattered and overwhelmed. I was actually more organized and less stressed.
And then I did my, my master’s graduating project on mindfulness and stuttering and read the actual research on mindfulness. And it made me realize … this is science based. There’s research behind this. This actually has a measurable impact on your nervous system. And I came from like a bachelor of science degree in psychology and I started a PhD in neuroscience. So I love anything to do with the nervous system.
And then I paid even more attention to the other aspects of yoga. I noticed that in addition to medicinal ways of managing ADHD, there are a bunch of non medicinal ways in managing ADHD, which include breathing exercises, mindfulness practices, exercise, all kinds of things that are folded into the package of yoga.Taucha Post, Yoga Teacher & ADHDer
