A high resolution, instant download of my handmade artwork – An Introduction to Polyvagal Theory.

The latest theory about our autonomic nervous system, postulated by Dr. Stephen Porges. The Polyvagal Theory divides the Parasympathetic functions of the Vagus nerve into 2 parts, that of the Ventral Vagus and the Dorsal Vagus.

The Ventral Vagus is our social engagement network and it is active when we are feeling calm and relaxed. In this state we are open to social engagement and are able to self-soothe and co-regulate.

The Dorsal Vagus kicks in when we are in extreme danger, or when we feel unsafe, but are unable to fight or flight our way out of the situation. It causes us to Freeze, Submit or Dissociate and is our most primal defense mechanism. Excessive activation of the dorsal vagal can cause depression, numbness, shutdown, lack of energy, dissociation and in extreme situations even fainting.

The Sympathetic nervous system is in charge of mobilizing our body and triggers the Fight or Flight response. It increases our heart rate and pumps our system with adrenaline and cortisol. Excessive and activation of the sympathetic chain causes anxiety, panic attacks, hypervigilance, etc.

As a yoga therapist, I search online for all kinds of images for my teaching on the nervous system, polyvagal theory and how they can help in yoga therapy. I was more than happy to pay a nominal fee for this perfect, succinct image for how our autonomic nervous system operates. Many thanks, and thanks from all my clients. Colleen Carroll, C-IAYT
