If you experience persistent pain, chronic illness, or digestive challenges…
If you experience anxiety, depression, insomnia, or traumatic stress…
If you have a nervous system, vital organs, or a body…
…then polyvagal theory might just be for you!
Polyvagal theory is the science of the whole-body experiences of safety and danger. It offers deep insights into relationships, emotions, nervous systems, and vital organs. It shows us that the nervous system is not ‘just in your head,’ and that the body is not ‘just anatomy.’ It is both scientific and intuitive.
This class shows you how polyvagal theory can help you support your own physical and emotional healing. You will learn to recognize, understand, and support your nervous system and body with a variety of techniques. In doing so you can find ways to gain more control over involuntary processes like pain or anxiety.
While we will talk about scientific concepts, you don’t have to be a science expert to use polyvagal theory. In this class we will go beyond the theory to explore a range of skills you can apply. All you need is curiosity.
