Yoga & Meditation
The hero’s journey plays out in every session.
We begin by grounding into this moment, becoming fully present.
Bringing the mind, body and soul back into alignment, we accept the call to adventure. As we move through the sun salutations, we face familiar, increasingly intense challenges…until we reach our edge.
It is there, at the edge, that we grow.
We become aware of our edge, how to play right up to it, how to fall and then begin again, with well-earned humility that opens our minds and hearts to curiosity in every aspect of our lives.
This is how I fell in love with yoga.
All forms of yoga can be transformative, but in my sessions, we take a mind-body hero’s journey.
What better practice to strengthen our physical, emotional and mental resilience simultaneously so that we can lead lives with more peace, confidence and humor?
Meditation: Building Stress Resilience One Breath at a Time
I know…you just can’t meditate. That’s what I told myself, too.
I reached out for meditation coaching in a moment of desperation, willing to try anything as I navigated my own trauma, in 2016.
After experiencing the results firsthand, I joined a course and became certified as a meditation teacher in 2017. I have since taught targeted sessions within training programs on Meditation, Trauma and Resilience to cohorts in the U.S. and Canada.
Yes, it’s hard at first. We aren’t used to sitting still, which is exactly why we need this practice. If resilience is the space between stimulus and our response, meditation chisels out that space, giving us a breath to make a responsive choice.
Meditation also creates the opposite physiological state to toxic stress, helping us move back to a parasympathetic, rest and digest baseline.
The cascade of holistic benefits of meditation for our physical, mental and emotional health are backed by decades of research, including fMRI studies showing that meditation can change the gray matter of the brain.
Find meditation for yourself through a private coaching session or join us for a group meditation.
