RECLAIM YOUR WELLBEING | Health In Your Hands
WORKING WITH THE BIOPSYCHOSOCIAL SELF
LIVING IS LOVING, LAUGHING, LEARNING & STRUGGLING! It’s accepting the great, crap and ambivalent of ourselves and all that is life.
Yoga therapy works to integrate our many layers; physical, energetic, mental, psychological and soulful. Ayurveda, mindfulness and Yoga plus a pinch of pychology and neuroscience, helps us adapt each practice according to your present challenges and needs. Working with whatever comes up in each layer we create greater integrity which naturally leads to wellbeing.
Any aspect of self that’s deficient, excessive or blocked; neglected, overdeveloped or abused, is brought back into balance through self-awareness of the patterns, knowledge of the tools and adapting accordingly. A session might use the tools of movement, breathwork, mindfulness, meditation, visualisation, relaxation, self-care and self-inquiry. All practices are based on Ayurvedic principles to bring back balance to our biopsychosocial layers.
In these one to one sessions we have the opportunity to discover the underlying issues causing imbalance in the biopsychosocial tissues. Addressing the issue at its root, these private settings can be quite intense and confronting, allowing us to make deep and lasting changes.
I can’t wait to start this journey with You!
