The Sara Lazar meditation keynote speech talks about the benefits that yoga can have on your life. Lazar was a skeptic herself but gave in and found that the stories were true. She began to feel less stressed, her attention span was better, and she overall just felt like she had an increased quality of life. After her skepticism was over with, she began to focus her studies on the health benefits of meditation.
Lazar is a neuroscientist who decided to do a study on the effects of mediation with people that practice it regularly and those that never do. Her study found that meditation may actually slow down or prevent the age-related decline of mental capabilities. The power of meditation is huge and can lead to outstanding health benefits.
