About the Event
Spring is here! Time to open up the windows…
Join Nicole Von Chorus and Jen Kinsey to learn a current model of the nervous system focusing on the vagus nerve, its relationship to social engagement, the stress response, and dissociation, and how to use this information to cultivate effective strategies for coping with stress and building resilience.
In this two-hour workshop, we will cover the anatomy and function of key areas of the nervous system related to anxiety, depression, mood regulation, and trauma-related stress patterns, as well as how the polyvagal model parallels fundamental yogic philosophy. A therapeutic yoga practice will focus on developing skills for managing our behavioral and bodily response to stress, restoring balance, and increasing our ability to tolerate challenges.
