Build resilience with yoga!
Weekend’s theme is RESILIENCE - the ability to bounce back and recover after stress, strain and difficulties. To become stronger both mentally and physically.
On Saturday we take a look into the vagus nerve and learn to understand how resilience is a character of your nervous system.
The practice is a combination of a more dynamic yang-style hatha yoga and a yin yoga sequence focusing on building a stronger vagal tone (activation of the vagus nerve). You balance the functioning of the nervous system, increase its dynamics and strengthen the activation of the parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous system branch.
Welcome to explore the convergences of research and yogic tradition!
The workshop does not require previous experience in yoga but is designed for all levels. Yoga teachers are welcome to deepen their understanding about the vagus nerve and to be able to share the knowledge to their own students.
Sanni Parkkinen is an experienced yoga teacher (E-RYT 500) and breathing coach coming from Finland. She’s coaching people to live happier & healthier with emphasis on physiology first – meaning that nervous system health is the key to solve many of the issues we tend to call mental. She studies psychology at NTNU and is keen on exploring neuroscience, mind-body connection and the interfaces of research and yogic tradition.
