Is it some kind of bug that pervades the air we breathe these days? Something we just can’t escape, no matter where we go?!
It does seem to come in all shapes and forms… the utter discomfort and physical pain that clouds our ability to make an impact at work, that keeps us from really enjoying our recreation or sport and show up in the lives of those that matter to us.
… the helplessness and sadness from our deteriorating relationships with our spouse, our children not playing by our book, the predicaments of caring for aging parents.
…the resentment and exhaustion from a chronic, tough to crack illness.
When I’m hearing for the common thread that runs through them all, what I really hear is the feeling of being trapped by the circumstances of our life. Of feeling like we don’t really have a choice.
What I find fascinating is how we embody this feeling of lack of choice. It shows up in the way we take a step - this walk of resignation, as if we are literally having to drag our own weight.
The stiffness in our back and hips we feel when we get up or change positions. The expression of heaviness in our voice and breathing. The lack of aliveness in our eyes. Those energy sapped mornings.
We have experienced that aliveness and joy in our stride at other times in our lives. It was effortless then. We just can’t find the means within ourselves to access it as easily now.
I will say, that there are many practices out there that work with these circumstances. And it really is a matter of fit.
What I love about my practice is that it’s an embodied practice. What do I mean by EMBODIED, you ask?
By embodiment, I mean using movement as a means of communication and profound change within our nervous system.
When I see someone get up at the end of a session and tell me, that they still had thoughts about their life, but that they didn’t perturb them anymore, I know that they have accessed within themselves a different place. A place that isn’t reactive, but where there is pause and expansiveness and spontaneity.
They can sense the lightness in their everyday movements – their walk, the life in their eyes and the freedom in their jaw and their back. And from that freedom in their whole self, they know that they can access the freedom in their lives that they’ve wanted so badly.
They see more colors, more choices than the black and white of their circumstances, more creativity in their possibilities.
And that is the most satisfying thing in the whole world! To watch this unfolding of possibilities, to see them step into their power – it’s what I live for!
Are you asking, how does it work? Are you asking the ‘Tell me more’ question?
It definitely starts in a pre-verbal place, you know that place where we haven’t yet given words to our sensations and feelings. It’s the quality of touch that allows an opening of dialogue, a pre-verbal conversation with a nervous system that feels safe to tell its story.
It’s the safety of being heard, of being listened to, of being accepted unconditionally, sometimes for the first time!
From that listening, begins an opening of vistas, not seen before. It’s as if it was all there, only the curtains have been lifted for us to see that view from the top of the mountain.
And it’s not woo-woo Shrutee. It starts to makes sense in our analytical brains. There is something very empowering about being able to make sense of our own healing in our logical, thinking minds.
Something you don’t have to place blind faith in. That you can question and expect a response that will meet your heart and your mind. It gives us the control, the confidence that we can access this ourselves. And that is empowering!
It is the difference between getting fixed and stepping into TRANSFORMATION! Something that begins to seep into all aspects of your life – your job, your parenting, your relationships, EVERYTHING!
How do I know if this is for me?
My work is definitely not for everyone.
If you’ve always known deep inside that there’s more INTELLIGENCE to healing than a diagnosis or a pill or blind trust in something beyond your grasp;

Looking for social proof?
Here are a few examples of what my clients have gotten from our work in their own words:
‘I feel like I am gliding.’
‘I feel light and more able to handle my life.’
‘I am calming down. I deal with stuff much better.’
‘My past hasn’t changed but the way I deal with it has.’
‘I feel like I have let go off so much that I have made way for something new and profound and light to come into my life.’
‘I sleep really well.’
'It's been a huge mental awakening and shows up in everything I do!'
