Somatic-based therapies for
At the core of every person is the deep desire for safety and belonging and a desire to be seen and heard; this creates the context for how we feel about ourselves, in the skin we live in. Body-based (somatic) practices are designed to get us out of the mind, and into the body. Yoga and other forms of mindful movement, Rolfing, craniosacral therapy, Compassionate Inquiry® and somatic coaching are resources that help to tap into other forms of knowing about ourselves that go beyond analysing and projecting. It is the body that can help to make sense of belief systems that limit us, and also act as a guide to access our deeper potential for healing. I act as a mirror, or intermediary, using these tools to help guide people back to their natural Self; the place where clarity emerges about what is meaningful for each individual.
This is a process of becoming -- at ease, in balance, embodied -- with a defined sense of presence, purpose and connection.
WHAT I OFFER
Moving towards wholism: at Ease
in Gravity, in the skin you're in
Our bodies are not separate from our minds, emotions or experiences. As we journey through life, we hold on to experiences which often leave an imprint in the physical body. Rolfing is a one-to-one process that alleviates tension strains held in the connective tissue by releasing, reorganising and redefining the relationship we have with ourself in gravity, resulting in more balance, integrity and efficiency in space. This work is part table-based work, and part a re-education process of how to inhabit the body in every day life.
Compassionate Inquiry and coaching are offered one-to-one or in couples/small groups. 'CI' provides a safe space to unearth the belief systems that hold us back from living in the present - that are often the root of suffering and limiting behaviour. Coaching tends to look toward the future in finding clarity through uncertainty and change.
At the heart of the yoga practice there exists a space for inquiry, movement and stillness; a space to heal and to re-awaken to our own basic goodness. I teach beginners, experienced yogis and teachers through a combined lens of explorative movement and classical asana. I have a special interest in supporting the ageing process and aiding in the healing process.
