The Northbrook Body & Brain Yoga Tai Chi center is marking a decade of providing a service to the community that dates back to ancient times. Manager Deanna Patacsil shares that the center has its roots in ancient Korean and other Asian methods to provide health and wellness integrative lifestyle education. “It includes a modernized system of holistic healing and science-based, mind-body practices called Brain Education.”
The center offers integrative classes and programs focusing on yoga, tai chi, meditation, martial arts and energy healing. The staff does an individual assessment as to what would be best for a new client entering the program. Breathing properly is essential to overall health, and is done through yoga, tai chi and meditation.
“Your brain, gut and intestinal health can react with different levels of oxygen in your body, as modern neuroscience has shown.” says Patacsil. “Breathing properly can not only help repair the cells in your bloodstream and organs, it can also help repair the cells in your brain.”
