Healing Yoga & Somatic Movement
The intention of traditional Yoga is Union. Healing Yoga focuses on restoring harmony to the mind, body, and spirit. When you restore balance and perspective, you accelerate your healing and personal development.
Healing Yoga is an uplifting and rejuvenating practice that reconnects you to your body and encourages greater self-confidence, compassion and self-care.
Healing Yoga blends the best of movement practices including- Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Practices, Doan Tapping, Qi Gong, Movement Meditation, Embodiment practices and Breathwork.
Somatic Movement is a means of resolving inefficient movement patterns and chronic pain that the body has developed through tension, stress, trauma or bad habit.
Somatic Movement lessons, 1:1 or in a group, are an active learning process as opposed to a passive treatment. It educates the sensory motor system to recover innate abilities for greater voluntary muscular control. It is physically and cognitively engaging and trains proprioceptive sensing. It helps release chronic neuromuscular contraction patterns and limited range of movement. Somatic education nourishes and improves the functioning of the whole person.
As we age certain muscle groups become less efficient through lack of use or bad habit. When we cannot control muscles as well as we used to this is known as neuromuscular amnesia. The only way to improve this is through active awareness and kinaesthetic perception of the muscles and a relearning of how to effectively coordinate their movements. This is our focus in a Somatic Movement Lesson.
Somatic Movement Lessons can be facilitated at home or by clinic visit.
1:1 sessions include hands-on feedback and supported movement.
Specific exercises will be reccommended for the client’s daily practice to improve ease and range of movement in the body.
Meditation and Self Care practices:
Learn how to support your mental health so you can better manage stress and anxiety, relax and refresh your energy levels, and restore calm to your mind.
A variety of practices support your self-care skills, including- Deep Rest Meditation, Yoga Nidra, Reiki Energy Healing, Self-Compassion techniques, Practical Self-Care, and Life Coaching techniques.
To meditate is to shift from being reactive to responsive, to become the aware observer of our thoughts and conditioning. You learn the skill to see behind thought and recognise the unchanging aspect of yourself within. The part of you that is unchanging, peaceful and content in all situations.
Meditation is a life practice. We learn to listen without judgement, acknowledge our shadow, and discover the eternal space within.
I assist people in accessing their true self, empowering them with the skills to support the life they desire and to access the innate wellbeing which is their birthright.
Any change you wish to see in this world always starts within!
Learning to meditate is the single most important practice for living a life of greater joy and fulfillment.
