Psyche – noun
the human soul, spirit, or mind.
Soma – noun
The body of a person as contrasted with the mind or psyche.
Yoga – noun
Union of the self with the Supreme Being or ultimate principle.
Psysoma Yoga is a mind-body method using a series of techniques derived from somatic experiencing, vagal toning exercises, and yoga asana to develop and strengthen the connection to the self via first person acceptance (the practitioner) and third person guidance (the instructor).
The process of experiencing the body from a first-person perspective – from the interior emotional state to the outward physical manifestation. The process of interior observation by the individual is unique in that it cannot be experienced or described by anyone else. The third-person perspective (the observer that is the instructor) can aid in the process through gentle guidance. The third-person perspective can also include a group setting that allows for mutual exploration through the exchange of emotional energy (synchronized movement, rocking movements, breathwork, chanting, and laughter/social interaction).
Vagus Nerve and Vagal Toning
The Vagus is not just one nerve, but a cluster of nerves that helps relay messages from the brain to the body's organs through receptors via the nervous system. Vagal toning is the process of strengthening this connection through the variety of activities listed above as a way to create deeper connections within the body that will effect the external environment of the practitioner and eventually others that come in contact with the practitioner. Energy is crucial to the human experience and can be shared with those around us!
Please bring a mat, water, and a towel if needed.
