Reveal Your Authentic Self
Are your old patterns no longer working for you? Do you feel stuck and desire growth? Do you strive to feel more connected to others? Let's explore what you need in order to move from old, habitual patterns into new ways of being and interacting with the world. I've experienced patterns that I had since childhood no longer work in relationships as I moved into adulthood. Challenging life events occurred and there were times I wasn't sure how to cope and move forward. Seeking support from a professional helped me to:
~develop awareness of patterns in my life that were no longer working,
~learn healthy ways to communicate, and be present and safe in relationships,
~discover my innate need for love and connection,
~create a relationship with myself and other through body awareness and mindfulness,
~love and accept all parts of myself,
~develop a relationship with my younger self,
~help me to find my spiritual path and journey.
You are not alone on this journey. We are all hardwired for love and connection. It's in the moments of connection with one another where we heal.
Most, if not all, people experience 'trauma' on some level. 'Trauma' exists on a spectrum, looking and feeling different for every person. The effects of trauma on individual's physical, emotional, social, or spiritual well-being also varies person to person. Trauma is defined as "experiences or situations that are physically devastating, and/or emotionally painful and distressing, and that overwhelm people's coping mechanisms, leaving them feeling out of control and powerless" (Genevieve Yellin, Sundara Yoga Therapy, 2017).
The trauma is the experience that stays with us, stuck in our bodies, after the event has occurred. As children, we create adaptations in order to survive. When young, the adaptations are brilliant and provide us safety in the moment. As we get older, the adaptations can result in disconnection, emotional dysregulation, mistrust, messages that we don't deserve love and intimacy, isolation. The therapeutic relationship creates potential for a new experience where one feels connected, loved, and understood. Within that space, there is a corrective experience healing and binding mind, body, and soul.
Challenges and struggles may include/not limited to:
-role of female,
-disconnection in self worth & self love,
-relationship with body,
-unwanted patterns and/or thoughts.
As a Trauma Informed Yoga Therapist, a safe space is created, through connection, relationship, and over time, trust, for individuals struggling with anxiety and those who identify with trauma to practice movement/asana and use the teachings of yogic philosophy to assist in self-regulation and the ability to handle triggering situations and reprogram the brain and body.
