    Yoga to Rest & Digest: The Vagus Nerve

    Gabriella Espinosa

    This yoga class uses simple practices to resource and reset the nervous system using breath, sound, gentle movement and massage to stimulate the vagus nerve and encourage deep relaxation. Either follow the class in full or learn the practices which resonate with you to be done in your own time. The vagus nerve acts as a “super information highway” communicating between the brain and our body’s systems regulating our mood, digestion, heart rate and hormones. The vagus nerve balances our nervous system by switching on our parasympathetic 'rest and digest' mode and influences how we connect and feel safe with others. You will need a bolster, blanket, tennis ball and/or soft pilates ball. Gabriella uses a Yoga Tune Up Coregeous Ball.

    Relaxing Restorative Yoga

    Yvonne OGarro

    This restorative yoga class is an opportunity to truly relax, the use of yoga props allow the body to shift from "fight or flight" into relaxation mode. Perfect for when you're a little overwhelmed and you need to give your immune system some time off. The props allow the body to be fully supported enabling release of tension leading to relaxation. Be kind to yourself as you move into stillness which may take time to achieve, but your nervous system will thank you for the opportunity to have an increased sense of well-being. Each posture is held for 5 - 10mins this is to allow the body to rest fully as it takes the nervous system on average 15 mins to shift mode; from sympathetic ("fight or flight) into parasympathetic (relaxation). There are only 4 postures during this class to maximise on rest and minimise movement. This class is great for improving posture, as we so often sit at desks rounded over computer or phones; postures chosen open chest and shoulders as well as creating an overall restful feeling. Props you will need: 1 bolster, 1 belt, 2 bricks, 2 blankets and an eye pillow. (1 x pillow folded in half, wrapped in a towel and pushed into a pillowcase makes a bolster or indeed a sleeping bag tied together | A scarf or robe belt can be used as a yoga belt | 2 x hard back books can be used as blocks| 2 x Bath Towels can be used instead of blankets.)
