Embodiment Strategies to Transform your Life
Physical Embodiment through somatic awareness, yoga postures, breathing techniques, as well as mindful and expressive movement can help you feel good in your body and at home in your own skin, as well as enhance your health and overall wellness. I specialize in working with people with medical syndromes and chronic pain using Somatic Experiencing, restorative yoga and meditation. In my work with people with eating disorders, I promote a non-diet approach that embraces the concept of intuitive, mindful and embodied eating for optimal health, strength and wellbeing. I am certified as a ParaYoga Level I teacher in the Himalayan tradition of Sri Vidya and offer private sessions to support your physical and emotional healing.
Emotional and Mental Embodiment through embodiment-based therapies designed to observe, understand and calm the mind and the emotions to promote wise responses to life challenges. I practice the cutting-edge trauma healing modality of Somatic Experiencing, a bottoms-up and limbic-calming approach grounded in an understanding of the polyvagal theory of the autonomic nervous system. I also am trained intensively in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, a third-wave cognitive-behavioral therapy that seeks to bridge the divide between reason and emotion and teaches skills for effective living. Further, I take into account the yogic model of the mind, principles of embodied cognition and affective neuroscience, and simple yet effective self-inquiry processes to aid awareness.
Spiritual Embodiment to integrate the transcendent with the mundane and allow your spiritual endeavors to help you reach your highest potential as a human being. If you want to be free in the world and not have to remove yourself from the world in order to achieve lofty spiritual goals, this approach may be for you. Learn how your body is the gateway to practical spirituality, and how all the powers inherent in the universe reside within you. As Tantric Hatha Yoga teacher in the ParaYoga and Sri Vidya traditions, I can train you in meditation techniques designed to harness your lifeforce and enable you to connect to the light in your soul so you can shine as your best self.
