Resiliency For The Modern Yogi

Module 1: Understanding Your Nervous System —from the polyvagal perspective

Saturday 26th June, 8:30 a.m – noon (PST)

The polyvagal theory is a relatively new approach to understanding the autonomic nervous system, which names a third response to our environment by identifying social connection, in addition to fight-flight and freeze.

Understanding where we sit on this hierarchy, in our own biology, helps us navigate our internal and external environments and build resilience and self compassion. This technique can help us learn to restore trust and build a sense of safety, shaping our responses more consciously rather than being at the whim of our reactions.

This class will be one part lecture (accompanied by slideshow, see two sample slides below), with your choice of self-reflection or journal prompts. The other portion will be movement, meditation and breath as somatic application of the material learned. It will take place live on Zoom, and be recorded and available to watch for one calendar year afterwards.
