JOURNEYS DOWN THE OXYTOCIN HIGHWAY: EXPLORING AND AWAKENING THE VAGUS NERVE WITH CONTINUUM MOVEMENT

* 22ND AND 23RD APRIL 2017 *

WITH CHERIONNA MENZAM-SILLS

ASSISTED BY JANE OKONDO

This workshop is open to all

Oxytocin is often referred to as the love and bonding hormone. Important in birth, breastfeeding, attachment, bonding and our relationships throughout life, oxytocin also supports many aspects of our health and well-being.

This workshop is inspired by recent research indicating that stimulating the Vagus nerve can profoundly affect our health, and enhance our recovery from stress and trauma. Methods of stimulation include activities used in Continuum Movement, including deep, diaphragmatic breathing and vocalized sounding. Continuum, founded by Emilie Conrad, incorporates a range of subtle intrinsic movements, subtle awareness and a variety of breaths and sounds to return to our natural fluidity, and dissolve old patterns in our tissues and nervous systems.

In this workshop, we will:

  • review the anatomy, functions and recent research on the Vagus nerve and oxytocin
  • explore the ground breaking work of Stephen Porges and his Polyvagal theory
  • stimulate the Vagus nerve with the breaths, sounds, gentle movement and subtle awareness of Continuum Movement
  • discover the possibility of enjoying the flow of oxytocin in our own bodies.
