Breathe and Calm Your Nervous System

Are you stressed and anxious? Feel hijacked and hyper-vigilant?

Are you stressed and anxious? Feel hijacked and hyper-vigilant? Our nervous systems evolved to protect us from threats like tigers and sudden danger. Chronic stress and tension are more the norm in modern life. 5,000 year old yoga and meditation breathing practices work with the vagus nerve and help to down-regulate our nervous system.

Enjoy this relaxing practice and see the difference for yourself.

Thrive Global
People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
