Yoga Workshop - Demystifying the Vagus Nerve : Feb 2021

Demystifying the Vagus Nerve

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 Vagus nerve, 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 Vagus 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 nerve 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.

 

This Vagus Nerve workshop continues to be one of Catherine's most popular topics.  If you are unable to attend this time, fear not, this workshop will be run again in the near future.
