Kundalini Yoga using Breath Work, Kriya (set of exercises) , Meditation and Mantra have all been shown to significantly increase your Vagal tone leading to reduced inflammation in the body, improved immunity, a better mood and memory, and a wonderful increase of endorphins - the happy hormones.
The vagus nerve acts as your body’s superhighway, carrying vital information between the brain, body and all your organs, and controlling how your body responds in times of relaxation and rest. Repeated Breathwork sessions can help to tone the vagus nerve, which can notably reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, and may also enhance immune, brain and gut function!
If vagal tone is good we tend to be more resilient to stress , recover better from illnesses and are generally more positive.
If it is poor we find ourselves in a continual fight or flight situation and are more prone to stress , physical issues with heart and digestive system, anxiety and depression .
This will be a safe space for you to learn and enjoy.
