Presentations Outline

Dr. Holger Cramer PhD
Yoga for Chronic Pain: Utilization, Efficacy and Safety
Yoga is the most commonly used mind body practice worldwide; and this strong increase in popularity has been paralleled by a sharp increase in yoga research initiatives in the past years. Chronic pain has been a major focus of clinical yoga research from the beginning and there is growing evidence that yoga can ameliorate spinal pain, rheumatic diseases, headache and other pain conditions. This talk will outline the evidence-base of yoga for chronic pain conditions. Special emphasis will be laid on the safety of yoga interventions.

Marian Papp, PhD
The components of yoga and their use

Ina Schuppe Koistinen, PhD
The effect of yoga and aerobic exercise on gut microbiota and the gut-brain axis
We are living in a microbial world and our bodies are covered and inhabited by trillions of microorganisms – the so-called microbiota. There is a growing realization that that our microbiota is a key regulator of human physiology and critical determinant of our health. This talk describes exercise and yoga as possible modulators of intestinal microbiome composition and the link to the bidirectional communication between the gut and the brain.
