MSYT is a 6-week, experiential, educational and embodied journey, integrating mindful meditation, yoga, somatic therapy and psychotherapy techniques.
We 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, release deeply held tension and allow stuck processes to move forward. 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 traveled 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.
I have since studied with exceptional trauma specialists including Peter Levine (Somatic Experiencing), Stephen Porges (Poly Vagal Theory) and Tara Brach (Radical Acceptance) and completed a certificate in Integrative Somatic Trauma Therapy. MSYT is an integration of ancient and modern wisdom, yoga and Somatic Therapy.
This is an experiential course where we put theory into practice. We will establish safety through self-regulation practices, build resilience as we grow our capacity to be with more, and attune to the wisdom of our body to discover true self-compassion and connection.
It is not, and should not be considered a replacement for, therapy or healthcare, but holistic support for your healing journey.
All welcome. No experience required.
