About This Workshop

While our body rests, our parasympathetic nervous system is responsible for things like our heartbeat, breath, digestion, and other bodily functions that we do unconsciously. The vagus nerve is the longest nerve of the autonomic nervous system, and carries signals from these organs to the brain and back. It also helps counterbalance the effects of stress on the body. In this workshop, you will learn about:

  • The functions of the vagus nerve
  • Polyvagal theory
  • Yoga practices that can support the tone and function of this important aspect of our physiology
