President's Message
March into Movement

It's not too late to join us for more amazing sessions! Here's what participants have been saying:

"I really enjoyed the class. I had not tried Tai Chi before today. Thank you for the wonderful introduction. I know it will help my balance."

"Taylor's cues and imagery were perfect for this newbie! So grateful for the opportunity to try out a new practice in a safe setting." 

"I initially thought this class would not fit me well because we were seated. I was amazed at how quickly I realized I was wrong. The class was a challenge for my body and brain, interlaced with fun."

Each session is recorded and sent out soon after – all you have to do is register and you'll automatically receive the recording.

All programs have modifications and no experience is required. We are excited to share this awesome week of wellness with you.

Yours in Brain Health,

New Webinar on April 2, 2024
Our upcoming webinar examines the relationship between early brain development and dementia prevention and yoga. Come learn how the fundamentals of early brain development and child development have advanced in recent years through neuroscience, molecular biology, and genomics– leading to a better understanding of how early experiences are built into the human body and brain.

We are honored to have Judy Romano, MD explain this important topic.

This webinar has been approved for 1 hour CE for Yoga Therapists and 1 hour for Yoga Teachers.

The webinar will be recorded and sent out afterward.

Online Course: A Glimpse of the Future
Many things can hasten the development of cognitive decline and in our brand new, A Glimpse of the Future course, you’ll learn about all of them and what you can do about it from our incredible lineup of world-renowned speakers. In particular, we discuss how women can prevent Alzheimer’s disease because women are at much higher risk than men.

This online course features the incredible presentations of the last conference ARPF organized at the end of 2023. If you missed it, you can still learn cutting-edge and timely topics on all aspects of Alzheimer’s prevention, in particular, evidence-based lifestyle medicine.
