Do you feel lost in sensations of stress, anger, irritation, anxiety, fear and struggle? Do you desire to be able to understand and navigate your emotional landscape? Do you feel hopeless in the face of difficult feelings?

“Hopelessness arises out of a combination of negative life events and negative thought patterns, particularly self-blame and a perceived inability to change our circumstances.” ~Brene Brown

I have been a Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher and Trainer for two decades. Yet in my life journey, I was still challenged by big emotions. So I went to study with the BEST and learned… Emotions are a CRITICAL part of our life experience, they are the senses of our souls.

We store trauma in our bodies, our nervous systems, our hearts and our minds. In order to heal, we need the tools to activate conscious awareness with a multi-sensory approach (conscious breath, movement, guided awareness).

Emotions are not something to avoid, numb, bypass or “overcome.” They are an integral part of our sensory system and powerful allies WHEN WE KNOW HOW TO WORK WITH THEM. They “feel bad” to get our attention. When attended to, they are direct guides to peace, contentment, wholeness, self-acceptance, and love.

Come explore HOW:

  • To use movement, breath and meditation to cultivate the strength and clarity to work with your emotions, rather than be overwhelmed by them.
  • To move from anxiety to peace.
  • To source your true power.
  • To meet your unique needs.
  • To trust your feelings, guide your self-awareness to experience deep self-acceptance, inner healing, and fulfillment.
  • Self-Guidance harnesses the power of emotional intelligence, movement and expansive meditative awareness to work with difficult emotions, embedded patterns and trauma.
