Yin yoga to calm the nervous system


A healthy and adaptive nervous system is key to our health. Consider the spine and brain being the central nervous system and from that all the cell messaging is co-ordinated through the rest of the body via the somatic nervous system - your sensory and motor neurons. How we feel and how we move. Truly this means that honouring your feelings starts to open the healing doors much more widely. Yin yoga brings calm to the nervous system and importantly helps to up regulate the para-sympathetic mode of the nervous system - where you rest, digest and heal. Give these three poses a go and feel the difference. Take it breath by breath, moment by moment. Be comfortable in your own skin youtu.be/a_fEsPfFs0s
