Applied Polyvagal Theory in Yoga: Therapeutic Practices for Emotional Health

Course Description

This class focuses on the intersection of polyvagal theory and yoga to help your body and mind cope with the demands of stress and recover from trauma. You can compassionately support your growth by enhancing the health of the autonomic nervous system. Therapeutic yoga allows you to attend to the interrelationships between mind, emotions, physiology, and behavior while inviting you recognize the inherent wholeness that resides within your spirit.

Applied polyvagal theory in yoga provides conscious breathing, vagal toning, mindful movement, and meditation practices that help rewire the nervous system. We help clients, students, and ourselves cultivate a felt sense of ease during times of safety, enhance our capacity to handle challenges with equanimity, and reclaim our ability to recover from stress swiftly and efficiently.

Takeaway + Special Discount

Through the lens of polyvagal theory, you will learn how the vagus nerve is a bi-directional information highway between mind and body—more importantly, we will experientially practice together yogic breath, movement, and awareness practices that can easily be integrated within psychotherapy.

About the speaker's new book:

“This well-researched book not only cites the most current applicable studies related to brain science and yoga as they impact mental health, but also provides a steady and thorough summary of yoga’s ancient wisdom as it applies to Polyvagal Theory and psychotherapy…Applied Polyvagal Theory in Yoga has become a valued and validating reference as I offer LifeForce Yoga practices to the yoga and mental health professionals I serve. No matter the healing modality in which you work, I fully endorse the many gifts this book has to offer you and your clients.”— Amy Weintraub, founder of LifeForce Yoga, and author of Yoga Skills for Therapists, Yoga for Depression, and the Yoga for Your Mood Deck (from Amy’s foreword to the book)

“In this beautifully articulated book, Arielle Schwartz leads the way into a deep and wide exploration of body wisdom. Her brilliance lies in her capacity to curate a path of consilience across three major disciplines: science, soma, and soul. Each chapter offers polyvagal-informed yoga practices that enable readers to bring her model to life.”
-Jan Winhall, Polyvagal Institute, author of Treating Trauma and Addiction with the Felt Sense Polyvagal Model

    USABP ON THE MOVE is an opportunity for our community to connect and experience restorative practices while getting exposure to many forms of somatic movement and mindful body-awareness programs. 

    The root of e-motion is “to move.” The same regions of the brain responsible for movement also carry out our cognitive processes. Our brain evolved from movement and still depends on it day to day. Join us to discover how conscious movement can bring nourishing restoration, playful community connection, and the understanding of how moving helps our thoughts, words, and actions.

    Somatic tools may include, among others, breath, movement, self-directed touch, sound vibration, and conscious dialogue.
