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.
It has long been realized and proved 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, less probable: parasympathetic) activation.
In this workshop we practice tools that were designed 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.
