Based on the findings, the study suggests long-term practice of Sahaja Yoga meditation may actually result in positive changes to brain structure and behavior.

As the study authors note, “long-term meditation practice increases direct functional connectivity between ventral and dorsal frontal regions within brain networks related to attention and cognitive control and decreases function connectivity between regions of these networks and areas of the default mode network.” The “default mode network,” is basically the monkey mind, or the fuel behind mental chatter that is all too often negative.

In simple terms, this study found that this meditation can strengthen the connection between areas of the brain related to attention and control, and makes the areas of the brain related to mental wandering weaker. Practitioners also had better scores when it came to impulsiveness and self-control. A win-win for the practitioners and their brains!

Of course, this is just one study, but it bodes well for this method of meditation.
