In this workshop we explore the interfaces of nervous system health, neurobiology and yoga. Yoga helps to balance the functioning of the autonomic nervous system, says research. From the yogic point of view is nervous system health, however, just a side effect of the increased fluency and flow of the whole system. Welcome to experience the convergence of research and yogic tradition!
In this workshop we explore the interfaces of nervous system health, neurobiology and yoga. Yoga helps to balance the functioning of the autonomic nervous system, says research. From the yogic point of view is nervous system health, however, just a side effect of the increased fluency and flow of the whole system.
We dive in the lecture part into the research conducted about the effects of yoga practice, into the autonomic nervous system as the master of the bodymind and into the yogic view on the human system. The practice part concentrates on balancing the functioning of the nervous system, increasing its dynamics and strengthening especially the activation of the parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous system branch.
The workshop does not require previous experience on yoga.
We will have a short break after the lecture that can be used for free conversation and questions about the theme.

Sanni Parkkinen is an experienced yoga teacher (E-RYT 500) and breathwork coach coming from Finland. Living in Trondheim, Norway, she teaches yoga in which the human being is seen as whole, mind and body being like two sides of a coin. She’s coaching people to live happier & healthier with emphasis on physiology first – meaning that nervous system health is the key to solve many of the issues we tend to call mental. She studies psychology at NTNU and is keen on exploring the interfaces of research and yogic tradition. Sanni has lived and worked in various yoga ashrams and centers in India, USA and Canada. For the past three years she has immersed herself in traditional non-dual Shaiva-Shakta tantra with teachers such as Miska Käppi (close student of Acarya Bhagavan Shri Shanmukha Anantha Natha) and tantra scholar Christopher Hareesh Wallis.
