Yoga – an integrated practice to regulate our nervous system
NeuroYoga blends the latest neuroscience, yoga Asana, Pranayama and meditation to improve your well-being and experiencing yoga on a different level.
Yoga, especially at the beginning of our path,when most of us focus on asana, is felt primarily on an anatomical level. However, even at this early stage , the effects go deeper: they involve our physiology in ways that can help to regulate our digestive, respiratory, hormonal and cardiovascular systems.
Modern neuroscience has caught up with ancient yogic wisdom, revealing that yoga, meditation, and mindfulness improve your brain, makes you stronger, healthier, more relaxed, and more capable of self-actualization.
This happens mainly by means of rebalancing our autonomic nervous system which, due to receiving a growing number of stimuli in our daily life,might be stuck in a state of constant sympathetic (or parasympathetic) activation.
In this workshops we look at a variety of tools proven to help alleviate physiological symptoms like sleep disturbances, elevated blood pressure, states of perpetuate agitation or gastrointestinal distress. The tools encompass asana, pranayama, meditation and relaxation techniques.
Duration: 3 hours
Level: This workshop is open to everybody with a basic knowledge of asana. First experiences with meditation or breathing techniques are helpful.
