The parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) and sympathetic nervous system (SNS) work together to regulate the way the body responds to the demands of daily life. When we’re under pressure or overstimulated by light/sound/pain, etc., our SNS gets activated in the service of “fight or flight” – enabling us to suspend basic functions like sleep and digestion in order to function on overdrive. When this occurs for an extended time, we experience symptoms of adrenal fatigue and are more likely to get sick, overwhelmed, and unhappy.
In this workshop, we’ll learn about the Vagus nerve and the role it plays regulating the Parasympathetic nervous system. We’ll explore a gentle asana practice to reduce tension in the belly and to restore tone and elasticity to this vital nerve and the organs it innervates. We’ll also work with breathing and somatic awareness practices that you can take with you and do anywhere on the fly. No yoga experience necessary. All are welcome to attend.
