Vagus Nerve Series

The Vagus Nerve is known to be ‘one nerve with thousands of branches’ that connect to our brain, heart and organs. Thus, it is the leader in our body’s crucial functioning of communication to our motor and sensory impulses to every organ in the body. This important nerve functioning can be impacted by stress.

Each class will consist of 2.5 hours and all levels of experience are welcome, even beginners with no yoga experience. Take 1 class or all 3! $50 for each individual class or $130 for all 3 Vagus Nerve Series classes.
