The Vagus nerve also knows as “The Wanderer” is the largest and most extensive nerve in the human body. It is connected to almost every major organ and gland in your body. This “Holy Grail” of the Parasympathetic Nervous system (REST & Digest!) is also the kissing comrade to the Chakra energy system. Learning to stimulate the Vagus nerve is akin to the reset button for counteracting the effects of chronic stress/ anxiety and depression and the resulting Dis-ease. Through movement, play, breath, toning and Yoga Nidra you will have an opportunity to:

  • Befriend your inner wanderer and learn what balance and imbalance look like.
    Learn the all-important Gut/Brain connection ( the home of all your feel good hormones!)
  • Learn practical take home tools for continued self-support.
  • Be introduced to the vagus nerve/ chakra connection (and why you should care!)
  • Give yourself permission for Deep and Radical Rest.
