“The issues are in the tissues,” is a phrase you will often hear spoken in the yoga community. The mind and body work in conjunction and we can’t work through issues, come to understand and resolve them by living in our heads, we must access the wisdom of the body for full integration to occur.
There is much that is hidden just below the surface–patterns, memories, experiences that are held in the unconscious, and these unknowingly affect the experience of our life. I have done much research in this arena and continue to do so as I work on my Ph.D. in Depth Psychology with a Specialization in Somatic Studies. Yoga can help to bring these aspects of our unconscious into the light, where it can be processed and integrated–no longer driving our thoughts and behavior in a way that causes dis-ease.
NO PRIOR YOGA EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY.
This is work is for everybody, every fitness level, and every body type. This work is tailored for YOU, and your specific needs.
Carl Jung, an influential Psychiatrist, and Psychotherapist taught that the body and psyche are one. Jung taught that the psyche is a self-regulating system that is constantly striving for growth and that the psyche is the totality of all psychic processes, both conscious and unconscious. If we are denying or not accessing the wisdom of the body, we are cutting ourselves off from a huge aspect of the system, and thus not able to achieve the state of being that we desire.
Jung also viewed the unconscious as the house of potential future development; the aspects of self that live below our conscious awareness unknowingly drive our behavior, belief systems, and actions and prevent us from achieving the growth that we desire. They affect the totality of our experience.
Yoga coaching is just one of the many tools I use (EFT, archetypal and dream analysis, and chakra work are others) to help access the unconscious so that we can process and integrate these aspects of self, bringing them into conscious awareness, and allowing for harmony within the mind, body, heart, soul.
The famous artist Michaelangelo said, “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” You are the artist of your life and sometimes we need to let go of the excess layers to reveal the beauty that already lies within–the beauty meaning your experience of life as a whole, fulfilled being who can gracefully deal with whatever life throws your way. Yoga coaching helps you to sculpt the life you desire, the life you were born to live.
Fulfillment is your birthright and you are already whole. You are not broken. Yoga coaching doesn’t seek to “fix” you. It simply helps to process the layers that are blocking you from that which you seek.
What are you dreaming of? What do you desire? What are you seeking?
Through deep inquiry, you will find that you already hold all of the answers. It will be an honor to guide and witness you on this journey.
Invest in yourself. You deserve nothing but the best.
