In this Hatha practice, Ashleigh Sergeant helps you invite calm to the parasympathetic nervous system. The parasympathetic nervous system, also known as the “Rest and Digest” governs the body’s capacity to to create homeostasis and balance and, as a result, drop into a deep state of relaxation and Presence. Working with this system helps with physical digestion and assimilation as well as the digestion of ideas, experiences and traumas. This extremely powerful and deep class is your medicine for any and all forms of anxiety, restlessness and insomnia.

Thank you for this series. It is so helpful in deepening my understanding of why I deal with adrenal dysfunction and helping me reset my mode of operation.

Hi there,
Just trying to download this episode for later practice and I am not having any success. Can you tell me why that might be? How do I resolve this? I have very limited data, so I find that streaming is not really a viable option for me. thanks Karren
