Dancing Makes You Smarter

More recently we've seen research on further health benefits of dancing, such as stress reduction and increased serotonin level, with its sense of well-being. Most recently we've heard of another benefit: Frequent dancing apparently makes us smarter. A major study added to the growing evidence that stimulating one's mind by dancing can ward off Alzheimer's disease and other dementia, much as physical exercise can keep the body fit. Dancing also increases cognitive acuity at all ages. You may have heard about the New England Journal of Medicine report on the effects of recreational activities on mental acuity in aging. The 21-year study of senior citizens, 75 and older, was led by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City, funded by the National Institute on Aging, and published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

The Big Book of Yoga: The Yoga Family Treehouse (page 1 of 4)

The earliest reliable evidence we have of Yoga being practiced in ancient India is a carving from the early Indus Valley settlement, Mohenjo-Daro, possibly dating back to 3300 BCE1. By way of comparison, Lao Tze, Socrates, and Buddha wouldn't be born until almost 3,000 years later. So in order to provide a truly comprehensive history of Yoga would entail the work of a lifetime (or lifetimes!).

What follows instead is a brief timeline and "genealogy" of the major influences in Yoga going as far back as we have reliable documentation, which is a bit more than 2,000 years or so. (Much beyond that and we have to rely mostly on speculation based on archaeological evidence.) Yoga in Ancient Times Although there were many early writings on Yoga, over time the main text that most scholars and practitioners have come to see as the "Bible" of Yoga is the Yoga Sutra, written by the sage Patanjali.

8.8.2013: Had some intermittent server problems over the last couple of weeks. Things should be back up to speed now. Sorry if it got in your way! MyStar is a stellar lifecycle game. Here you can create different types of stars, in different parts of the galaxy. As much as possible, MyStar is based on our current understanding of the real world. Good luck! Things To Know Take your time: MyStar runs at one million years to a minute. Build your funds: You start with limited currency, but your systems earn you more over time. Watch for habitable zones: Some parts of the galaxy are dangerous for life, and not all regions around a star are hospitable either. Get those Feats!
