"Brain Longevity Therapy Training (BLTT) is a great opportunity to discover the latest practical research application of yoga, meditation, and spirituality for the prevention and reversal of cognitive decline. Become a leader in the field of meditation and memory."
Baby boomers are the fastest-growing segment of our population and today almost 6 million adults are struggling with Alzheimer’s in the U.S. alone. Worldwide, that number is estimated to be at least 50 million people. Around the globe, someone is diagnosed every 30 seconds. You can become part of the movement towards healthy aging and Alzheimer’s prevention through this highly informative, on-demand Certification program, now available to everyone in the world. BLTT will take you on virtual, interactive deep dives into topics important to our members and society.
As a participant, you will increase your knowledge and credibility around neuroscience and yoga and the impact meditation has on the brain. Plus, you’ll walk away with practical tools you can start implementing on day 1 to enhance your teaching/practice and improve your own resilience to face these stressful times. We invite you to meet our team of experts and take action through a series of curated live and on-demand events during this course and beyond.
“This course offers you a comprehensive summary of the last two decades of research and applications of ARPF’s approach to Alzheimer’s disease prevention strategies. It will provide you with an invaluable wealth of knowledge and skills that will inspire both you and those you love to improve their brain health and longevity.”

"This [support group meeting for BLTT students] is super helpful and informative. It's great to meet other people from around the world. It gives me an overview of what your Foundation is about, because I really didn't know much about it or how much support we actually get. I thought that I was going to take this course and just add to my expertise, but now I feel uplifted a little bit more with all the support and awareness and the spreading of this wonderful news. I'm in this different space. So thank you for that. And then also, lots of really wonderful, supportive, bright people in this whole area. So I really feel nourished. Thank you for this. I'm glad that I took the time to be here [at the support meeting]."
- Angie H., Yoga Teacher
This course is developed as a fully virtual training. The online work will be available immediately upon registration, so you can learn from the comfort of your home and take open-book exams. You have one full year from the date you register. For the completion of the course, we will schedule an online Practicum session. The Practicum is the final step to activating your membership as a Certified Brain Longevity Specialist. It will be a simple, 10-minute presentation based on a BLTT-related topic of your choice. We will, of course, explain this in more detail ahead of time.

History of ARPF and its work
Module 15: The Brain Longevity Yoga Exercises for Every-Body
"ARPF offers information on brain longevity to meet the needs of our patient population, from those with cognitive linguistic impairments to dementia to those post-COVID or those with subjective cognitive decline, mild cognitive decline or just an overall fear of becoming one of the above statistics. SLPs play a vital role in treating the signs and symptoms of cognitive decline. As an as an SLP for over 35 year, I now see prevention as a vital part of the treatment plan. The brain longevity therapy training is the answer to my prayers for a holistic approach to this dreadful disease. This information is invaluable and needs to be disseminated."
- Kim O., Speech and Language Pathologist
"I have decided to become a member of ARPF because now I understand and appreciate the value that the membership offers and also because I see the benefits of belonging to the wonderful community you have created and nurtured."

“Immediately, I was able to use the materials and information to offer community public education events and to enhance professional and university educational courses. I also use the information in my clinical practice that includes working with individuals living with dementia, caregiver support, wellness interventions and organizational program development. Additionally, I developed a deeper understanding of the clinical benefits of yoga, meditation and Kirtan Kriya. I am collaborating with another course participant who is an inspiring yoga instructor to develop integrated yoga, wellness and educational based stress management programs.”
