Cultivate resilience and self regulation with the tools of yoga therapy:
ETHICAL INTENTION SETING
informs and directs the meeting of physical and mental sensations, such as form interception or emotions, for the promotion of positive physiological and affective states and prosocial behavioral responses.
help regulate and promote resilience by altering the state of the ANS
directly affect cardiac vagal tone and the initiation of the vagal brake to move the system towards the VVS platform.
The yoga tradition offers an array of mind-training practices for regulation such as focused attention and open-monitoring meditation.
Dysfunction of Interoception can be a part of many neurological, psychiatric, and behavioral disorders. Meditation utilize exteroceptive routes (e.g. sound, vision, somatosensation, and cognitive influence) to trigger activity in the brain, and likely exert their effects on interoceptive body signals and function through descending pathways.
Self-regulation is a conscious ability to maintain the stability of the system by managing or alternating responses to threat or adversity, seduce symptoms of diverse conditions such as IBS, neurodegenerative conditions, chronic pain, depression, and PTSD through the mitigation of allostatic load with an accompanying shift in autonomic state.
Resilience provides the ability of an individual to "bounce back" and adapt in response to adversity and/or stressful circumstances in a timely way such that psychophysiological resources are conserved. High resilience is correlated with quicker cardiovascular recovery following subjective emotional experiences, less perceived stress, greater recovery from illness or trauma and better management of dementia and chronic pain.
