Understanding the Nervous System & Polyvagal Theory: Establishing Safety through Yoga

Next offering: TBD

Cost: $60 + GST

Webinar Description

This 4 hour interactive webinar begins with an exploration into the anatomy of the nervous system followed by a deep exploration of Stephen Porges’ Polyvagal Theory, which teaches us that the removal of threat does not equal safety. As we gain a deeper understanding of how our nervous system functions and serves to protect us from danger and life threat, we have a greater understanding of what we need to do to self-regulate and maintain a life that feels balanced and harmonious.

This course will include lecture & discussion, as well as a practical application of yoga techniques to tone the vagus nerve (primary nerve of our relaxation response) in order to help re-establish safety through the nervous system. No prior knowledge or experience is required.

Who is this webinar for? This is suitable for yoga practitioners & instructors, body workers & counselors, and anyone interested in learning more about self-regulating their nervous system.
