Yoga for Trauma Recovery
Polyvagal theory and Yoga: An embodied path to well being
A balanced and resilient nervous system allows us to live with ease and flexibility to help us navigate more easily through life’s challenges. Understanding the language and rhythms of the body allows us to tune in to the information that our nervous systems hold and is consistently communicating. Once we cultivate a relationship with our nervous system, we can use this information to enhance our well-being.
Through the practices of yoga and embodiment, while incorporating the principles of the polyvagal theory we learn how to identify these subtle messages, create healthy patterns that allow us to bring our nervous systems back into rhythm, foster resiliency to help us cope during difficult times, connect with others, and co-regulate.
