Unlocking the Power of the Vagus Nerve
Join Catherine Annis on this Scaravelli yoga Vagus nerve workshop where we will look at the importance of this nerve and how it can effect us during Yoga - ChillOutYoga, Suffolk, Nov 2019
Have you ever wondered what the Vagus nerve is and why it’s so important?
Playing a fundamental role in the parasympathetic nervous system, the so-called “wandering nerve” is responsible for our rest and digest capacities, and when stimulated, produces a calming and soothing force in our bodies
Join us on this Scaravelli yoga Vagus nerve workshop to explore how we can stimulate vagal tone to help:
∗ harmonise the systems of the body,
∗ lower our blood pressure
∗ lower heart rate
∗ reduce anxiety
∗ reduce inflammation
∗ increase our sense of trust, compassion, acceptance, and joy
We’ll learn some simple techniques to access the Vagus to help us unwind and let go. And whilst many of us enjoy those sensations of increased openness, we’ll also explore how we can balance that relaxation by creating a sense of stability and containment, working to centre and strengthen our physical and emotional selves.
Leave feeling relaxed, resilient, strong and open.
Scaravelli inspired yoga is a stress-free yoga that benefits everyone. Classes are suitable for all ages and all levels, from beginners to those with many years of experience. Regardless of your level of fitness, you will discover a longer, stronger and more flexible spine, a calmer mind, and begin to enjoy increased energy and ease of movement.
It uses the breath and gravity to allow the spine to unfold like a wave, allowing the uninhibited opening and energising of the whole body. As Vanda explains in the opening page of her book “Awakening the Spine”
