Alzheimer’s and music

We all have heard that music touches the soul and mind in ways we don’t understand or perhaps appreciate.  Music touches every part of the brain, not just the memory portion.  Using music effectively can open doors for a person like perhaps nothing else.  Here are two “must see” videos on youtube:

The power of music, as used in these settings, is amazing.  I was so impressed with these videos that I am definitely taking a closer look at the music I use during yoga practice with individuals.  Being able to reach behind the curtain and then teach them yoga would be so fantastic!  More on this subject as I proceed down the path.

Namaste.
