About This Course

Our nervous system constantly provides bottom-up feedback to our brain and guides many of our behaviors and internal responses to threat or opportunity. In this workshop, we will explore the nervous system and the poly-vagal theory to learn how this bottom up communication can be mediated by simple practices we can use every day to support greater flexibility in our response to stress and challenge.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Describe the importance of nervous system regulation to support resilience and well-being.
  2. Define the poly-vagal theory and how it relates to safety
  3. Use simple body-based tools to support stability
