Tune Into Your Nervous System with Yoga:
Discover Its Rhythm and Movement
Below you'll find all the materials you need to get started this week.
Inside the program I’ll show you how to trust signals that are coming from inside, from your own nervous system. At the heart of your journey is dedicating some time everyday to explore simple practices that are based in adaptive yoga and self-awareness.
It’s a transformational process, to step back and gain new insight into your own system and needs so you can build a stronger foundation in supporting yourself and others.
Remember, I created this course for anyone that is dedicated to personal self exploration through building their inner strengths of self-awareness, self-acceptance and kindness. And it’s also for professionals that integrate Mindfulness into their work with others.
How This Program Works
I designed this program with you in mind.
While the core curriculum is the same in each program, our time together, is unique to you, and your community of peers for this round.
Okay. Let's get into it. Here's how the program works:

An Overview of How We'll Move Through the Program
The Course Flow
You'll find a recorded interview with Deb Dana, LCSW, a guest expert, to help you gain clarity. She trains clinicians in how to regulate themselves. Deb co-authored a book with Stephen Porges, PhD., Clinical Applications of The Polyvagal Theory: The Emergence of Polyvagal-Informed Therapies (forthcoming from W.W. Norton).
Then, in each session there will be integration experiences to bring the learning home. These may include tools of yoga such as breathing and meditation exercises; gentle movement; self-reflection; journaling and sharing. Each week, you’ll have recorded practices that are integral to understanding this material experientially, more from the inside out.
There will be also be a Q&A with Deb Dana during the course.
Things To Consider When Building Your Personal Practice
Follow a practice that you enjoy about 4 times a week to let the experience land. This supports you in building a personal practice.
Think about when you'll want to do practices, 15 - 20 minutes or so. Is it easier to set aside time when you start the day or before a meal? Find a time to be consistent. It helps you follow through.
I'll give you practices inside the program to try, so you can see what works for you.
