If you suffer from digestive issues such as IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease), Crohn’s, or ulcerative colitis, characterized by chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, this video is for you! In this video, I will guide you through a soothing yoga pose (with a block) that gently stretches your abdomen, calms your nervous system, stimulate your vagus nerve, and promote relaxation, all while supporting digestion.
The vagus nerve, also known as the “wandering nerve,” is a crucial component of the parasympathetic nervous system, responsible for rest and “digest.” By coming into a pose that supports the parasympathetic nervous system, you can experience inner calm, reset your nervous system, lower brain activity, and relax your muscles, all of which support digestion.
But that’s not all! I will also share with you a way to augment the effectiveness of the pose by stimulating the vagus nerve, regulating heart rate variability (HRV), and reducing inflammation through the release of anti-inflammatory neurotransmitters.
Join me in accessing the healing and recharging parts of your nervous system, toning down the overactive part (sympathetic nervous system), and supporting your digestion through this powerful combination of yoga and special bonus.
