Does your mind torture you with what-if and catastrophic thoughts? Do you have trouble sleeping or wake up anxious? Do your plans for self-care fall apart? Stress and trauma get lodged in our body in tight jaw, shoulders, and gut. Yoga, breathing and meditation help.
Why do we feel uneasy about getting to to know ourselves? It is normal for us, especially as children, to feel overwhelmed by painful events. Experiences of feeling unloved and powerless become beliefs. These false core beliefs of unworthiness drive our thoughts and actions. We hide-out by being good. Lash out or numb out. We internalize and shame ourselves.
We draw on the 5,000 year old tradition of yoga meditation and the latest neuroscience on strength and resiliency. We relax into breathing and being present in our bodies. We explore and see that sensations in our body are not here to hurt us. We learn effective tools to stay with troubling thoughts and energy and to release hurtful associations from our past.
Clarity emerges. We begin to deeply know and trust ourselves. We feel calmer, joyful and more able to express our own authenticity.
