Brain Longevity® Specialist Spotlight
Your ARPF is proud to introduce another outstanding Brain Longevity Therapy Training specialist:
Based in Maine and Costa Rica, Eryn is a yoga teacher primarily teaching workshops on brain health, as well as working with private clients. Much of her work is with people recovering from injury, illness, addiction, or looking to improve their overall health. Eryn explains, “In my brain health series, I structure classes with a presentation, followed by a movement or meditation practice that compliments the topic we covered during the session. I love using the ARPF 4 Pillars of Alzheimer’s Prevention as a roadmap for my students and in my classes because of how accessible it is. The beauty of starting with four simple guidelines is that it allows students to layer on more knowledge and information at their own pace, in a way that helps create sustainable change in their day-to-day life. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither is a healthy lifestyle. The 4 Pillars approach allows for baby steps, or massive leaps into the deep end, depending on what each student needs.”
Eryn incorporates what she learned from her Brain Longevity Therapy Training (BLTT) into her classes by providing a presentation workshop series, as well personalized sessions for private clients. Sharing information about the importance of healthy nutrition and supplements, not only for a healthy physical body but also for cognitive care and improvement has helped many of her clients develop a healthier relationship with food. “When I share with students the ways in which food can be viewed as medicine, and the ways we can support our diet with supplements to allow for better processing in our body, there is an “ah ha!” moment. Students recognize that we have at least three intervention points (meals) each day when we can support and nourish our bodies and brains with food, and not just mindlessly consume for the sake of consumption. It is often this moment of understanding and empowerment that proves to be the catalyst for pursuing more knowledge about the ways we can support our brain health.”
Eryn adds, “The changes and benefits I have seen in my students have been remarkable. Many of them are young professionals developing their careers and lifestyle, and after learning the 4 Pillars of Alzheimer’s Prevention I have had the joy of watching my students prioritize The Pillars and make changes that support their wellbeing. I have watched them come out of anxious and depressed stages of their life, and grow into confident and healthy individuals. In particular, I have seen the benefits of stress management and spiritual fitness help transform the mindset of students. Often, students come to me frustrated because they feel they are eating healthy and being physically active, but they are still struggling. By implementing stress management and a spiritual practice, they achieve optimal health and access the full efficiency of a healthy brain. My students report a decrease in anxiety, depression, fatigue, brain fog and reduced feeling of burnout. The ARPF guidelines are optimizing the health of my students, my peers, and myself and I am incredibly grateful to be sharing this knowledge and improving health and wellness in my communities.”
