Through very simple and gentle exercises, we activate the ventral branch of the vagus nerve to balance the autonomic nervous system.
This means to support coming from subtle states of stress or intense survival responses to a state of inner calm and openness for social engagement.

Depending on how many are interested, I am open to offering a 4-week neuro-regulating practice series for a charge in the future. Please let me know if you are interested.
What is the polyvagal theory?
Stephen Porge’s polyvagal theory emphasizes that the parasympathetic nervous system (part of the autonomic nervous system) has two distinctly different branches. One serves for immobilization in life-threatening situations, another activates feelings of safety, trust, and positive social connection.
We might get caught in neurologically activated states of fight, flight, or immobilization for decades. Then, every little trigger that reminds the autonomic nervous system of a traumatic experience can trigger overreactions. These long-term activated states also greatly compromise our health.
We can help activate the ‘social nervous system’ to inhibit or change habitual survival mechanisms. Subtle conscious approaches can transform “frozen neurological states” into highly flexible, adaptable states in the long term.
