Barbara Lowes, E-RYT 500, YACEP, Reiki Master, BLS

Barb was inspired to study the practice of Brain Longevity after her father passed away from Alzheimer’s. She uses this passion to teach others the empowering yoga strategies found in ancient wisdom teachings. These studies are proven to relieve tension and anxiety, improve mood, boost focus and concentration – plus build a strong memory to keep the brain active, robust, and healthy.

“I’ve been practicing Kirtan Kriya every day since I took BLTT a few years ago and I don’t forget a thing. So, thank you. I have also been enjoying all of the ARPF webinars and programs– I have learned so much. I am thrilled to be a part of this unbelievable experience and to share it with all of my students. I’m also thinking about having a one-week Meditation Challenge, too. I loved the one we did with ARPF. I am forever grateful.” – Barbara
