Vagus Voyage: An Embodied Tour of the Vagus Nerve and its Influence

Schedule: 
Friday, March 18, 2022 - 6:00pm to 8:30pm
Neural flexibility. Neural resilience. Neuroscience.

If these terms seem heady, this workshop will help you embody your brain’s neural playground….your body.

The vagus nerve is beloved by humans for being our chief parasympathetic (relaxation response) nerve. But new science around the influence of the vagus has shifted our understanding of parasympathetic responses.

This workshop teaches you how to access the three anatomical zones innervated by the vagus nerve, and how each zone affects our state of perception and quality of being. The workshop includes novel breath-based exercises coupled with soft-tissue self-massage and positional release in order to feel the fascinating interplay of stimulating sympathetic and parasympathetic modes of being.

Learn to distinguish between the myelinated and unmyelinated vagus pathways and become familiar with Polyvagal Theory. It increases your embodied awareness to foster safe physiological environments for yourself and your students. This workshop is also a great pre-sleep primer, initiating profound and lasting tranquility.

Recommended props for this workshop: Coregeous Ball (or squishy Pilates Ball), Pair of Yoga Tune Up® Balls or other soft self-myofascial release balls (tennis balls can also be used as an alternative), bolster, mat, block.

**This workshop includes 7 Day access to the recordings
