About Discovering the Vagus Nerve

Date : 27 November 2021
Location : The Yoga Shed Wickham
Cost : £23
Time : 2-4 pm
The vagus nerve is the longest nerve in the body yet many of us have never heard of it and have no idea how important it is. The nerve starts at the base of the skull and travels all way down the body connecting all our major organs with the brain.
It is like a super highway sending messages back and forth to the brain and forms part of our parasympathetic nervous system – the “rest digest “ rather than the “ fight or flight “.
If vagal tone is good we tend to be more resilient to stress, recover better from illnesses and are generally more positive.
If it is poor we find ourselves in a continual fight or flight situation and are more prone to stress, physical issues with heart and digestive system, stress and depression. We get caught in a stress loop. A vicious circle.
In this 2 hour workshop we shall look at the science. We shall then practice asanas to work on these areas to improve vagal tone. There will be flowing sequences to warm up the body, strengthen muscles and stretch connective fibres thus increasing blood flow to organs. There will be energizing backbends to open the heart and calming inversions
We shall also look at Pranayama- breathing exercises, and meditation –in particular the loving kindness meditation – borrowed from the Buddhist tradition.
The cost includes an emailed handout.
