Yoga As Medicine Level 2, Yoga Therapy for the Nervous System
The autonomic nervous system (ANS) controls every organ and system in the body, and affecting it is a central aim in yoga therapy. Lectures will examine the physiology of stress and stress-related diseases as well as disorders of the nervous system. Attendees will learn to identify, differentiate and treat disturbances of the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches of the ANS and related breathing dysfunctions. Case work will explore how asana, pranayama, restoratives, meditation and other yogic techniques can help re-pattern abnormal stress responses, both over- and under-activity, common among those with everything from anxiety to insomnia, chronic fatigue syndrome and autoimmune conditions.
