Each week of our six-week journey together involves a gentle practice integrating mindful meditation, gentle and restorative yoga, somatic therapy and psychotherapy techniques. We will explore practical tools, tips and experiences to help us work through the symptoms of anxiety, stress, trauma and grief. These techniques shed light on how to regulate our emotions and nervous system, connect to the wisdom of our body, mobilise stagnant energy and release deeply held tension. Through this embodied, trauma conscious experience we learn to approach ourselves with kind curiosity opening to a deeper understanding of ourselves and leading to greater self-acceptance, self-kindness and ease.
A little about my recent journey: In 2019, after reading The Body Keeps the Score, I travelled to Massachusetts to study with Bessel van der Kolk (the author, and a leading expert on trauma). Bessel’s teaching gave me so much insight into myself, it was an invitation to learn more and it changed my life. It allowed me to feel deeply and to find compassion for myself, more compassion for others and a deep desire to support trauma survivors on the challenging journey to becoming whole.
Whilst there I studied Trauma Sensitive Yoga with the Trauma Centre’s David Emerson and Jenn Turner, Chakra Psychology and Somatic Therapy with Anodea Judith, Radical Acceptance with Tara Brach and Therapeutic Restorative Yoga with Jillian Pransky. My passion is the integration of Body, Mind, Heart & Soul and I continue my studies in Somatic Trauma Therapy, Trauma Conscious Yoga and I am currently studying my Master of Psychotherapy.
This course is an integration of ancient and modern wisdom, of body & mind. It is not in place of therapy, rather holistic support to your healing journey. Join me and welcome yourself home to body, mind, heart and soul.
