Fusing theory and anatomy with embodied yoga and meditation to create an intimate awareness of our mind-body dynamic. Bringing contemporary research of the nervous system and neuroscience into our awareness of yoga and anatomy – we discover really that the ancient yogis had a deep understanding of our physical bodies, our subtle energy and our brain’s ability to change – we want to share their insights and the science behind them. Each week there will be a lecture and a get on the mat sequence.
Discover how activating the Vagus Nerve can help us navigate our lives with clarity and trust . The Vagus nerve is at the root of our nervous system health – it touches many of our bodily systems and therefore can be activated by key yogic practices. In our course together we will look at the science and anatomy of the Vagus Nerve – but we will focus on tcreating a tool-box of yogic practices and hands-on techniques to create a better functioning nervous system and a healthy sense of both safety and presence.
What are Mind-Body Therapies?
For almost 20 years we have been building up a tool box of practices – some are from the world of yoga and pranayama, some from massage and hands-on techniques, but we have also been inspired by and trained in trauma-release breathwork, mind-body ballpark and nervous system regulatory techniques.
What is the Vagus Nerve?
The Vagus Nerve is Cranial Nerve 10 and the longest nerve of the autonomic nervous system. Stephen Porges calls it our safety surveillance system as the vagus nerve is 80% sensory (afferent) – sending messages from the viscera to the brain. So so its also referred to as the ‘caretaker nerve’.
