The Nourished Nervous System Podcast

Episode 18 - Nervous System Detox with Sarah Nelsen

Hosted by Kristen Timchak          

Show Notes


In Ayurveda, we talk a lot about digestion.  And it isn't just the digestion of the food you put in your body, but also of the sensory impressions that you take into your mind.  What you take in each day in the form of media, news, and shows needs to be digested and can affect your nervous system.

In this episode with Sarah Nelsen, she talks about how she takes the nervous system into consideration in her yoga teaching and about a nervous system detox she did and the results she found.  

Sarah Nelsen is a certified yoga teacher and yoga therapist and a lifelong spiritual seeker. She delights in helping people create connections to their mind, body, and spirit through gentle movement, breathwork, and opportunities for contemplation. Sarah runs an online therapeutic yoga membership and hosts the Homecoming podcast.

In this episode:

  • What yoga therapy is and the connection between chronic pain and anxiety
  • Ways that yoga can affect the nervous system
  • How Sarah uses gentle yoga practices to nourish the nervous system
  • What her nervous system detox entails
  • Some of the results from the detox
