The nervous system is a vast and complex aspect of our human experience that keeps in constant communication with all our bodily systems, and researchers and scientists are finding new information about it nearly every day! It works most intimately with the endocrine (hormonal) and immune systems, the most subtle of all the bodily systems. Yogis of old knew this, prioritized methods to manipulate it, and designed their lives in ways to access its deeper powers. In this five-hour immersion we'll look at anatomical maps of the nervous system, consider ways yogis historically looked to and worked with it to help us better understand its complexity, and engage in practices that offer experiential insight into individual function. Using methods such as asana, pranayama, meditation, big and small group discussions, as well as other techniques, we'll take a deep dive into experiencing and learning about the gifts of the nervous system. Open to any student with interest; special focus for those with some yoga experience and/or those who have completed a 200-hour teacher training.
