Flashback to my trip to Ibiza with my soul sister @lbathersby . Evenings on the beach with local musicians and people gathering to celebrate the sunset. I miss the warmer climate and being so close to the sea, practicing yoga and swimming. I feel grateful to have experienced things in my life that bring me such fulfilment. The next stage is to make space for those things to be a daily part of living. Life is so short, and several reminders of that recently have inspired me to take no day of mine for granted. #tothyownselfbetrue #asabovesobelow #travel #traveler #ibiza #yoga #swimming #sunset #sunrise #bodypsychotherapy #biodynamicmasage #meditation #asabovesobelow #livelife #mentalhealthawareness #carpediem #ink #bodyart #pheonix #girlswithtattoos #inkedgirls #tattooedwomen

Whole bodied breathing includes allowing both the chest and belly to expand and relax with the breath. Our breathing patterns can give us clues about our unconscious ways of being and relating. 
Put one hand on your chest and one on your belly and notice which expands more freely and fully with the breath in. Do they move in synchrony? Does one move more than the other? Do both stay relatively still? Feel free to comment your experience! 
Breathing more fully allows us to feel more pleasure and vibrancy physically and emotionally.

MOTION TO EMOTION

Release of tightness and construction in my muscles and diaphragm through movement of my breath took me in a journey to myself. 
As I embodied my sadness more and more with movement of my breath, I was able to connect with my body and felt balanced and brave enough to make changes in my life.

Feel the movement  of your breath in your chest.  if your heart feels sad or fear or anger, that is how you will know you are alive. When you don’t experience this circulation of emotions, you get depressed. 
In order to feel your  natural state of JOY, allow yourself to feel the pain.

I’ve been reflecting on cycles a lot recently. In #biodynamicmassage , we speak of the vasomotoric cycle , which is based on either being in an upswing - full of energy and emotion or a downswing, deep resting. When we allow ourselves one or the other, the cycle continues to move through us at a healthily rate. We have to surrender from what we think we need to do this effectively. Surrendering is not giving in, it’s a letting go and is a part of my daily practice. With it brings gratitude for what we have in this moment and a trust that it’ll all work out in the end. Come to class tomorrow to explore where you are and pratice letting gooo @yoke.dalston at 7:30am & @yogariselondon at 7pm Peckham. 🙏🏾🙏🏾❤️ #forrestyoga #anitaforrest #yoga #bodypsychotherapy #yogaeverydamnday #yogatherapy

Check my story out today for a insight into my trauma responses. Today has been horrendous and post therapy has been truly worrying in its severity. 
Sleep time for me and hopefully tomorrow is better.

ADAPTATION? OR DISEASE…
🌐
Today’s brain-disease model overlooks 4 fundamental truths:

1-Our capacity to destroy one another, is matched by our capacity to heal one another… restoring relationships, and community, is central to restoring wellbeing.

2-Language gives us the power to change ourselves and others by communicating our experiences. Helping us to define what we know, and finding a common sense of meaning.

3-We have the ability to regulate our own physiology, including some of the so-called “involuntary functions” of the body and brain through such basic activities as BREATHING, MOVING, and TOUCHING

4-We can change social conditions to create environments in which children and adults can FEEL SAFE, and where they can thrive.
🌐
Systemic traumas and coping mechanisms are barely understood in a ramping age of information. Partially, this includes the guesswork of many psychiatric medications. Because drug treatments have become so profitable, major medical journals rarely publish studies on NON DRUG treatments for body/mind health issues. Practitioners who explore treatments are typically marginalized as “alternative”. Studies of non-drug treatments are rarely funded unless they involve so-called “manualized protocols” where patients and therapists go through narrowly prescribed sequences that allow little fine-tuning to individual patients’ needs. Mainstream medicine is firmly committed to a better life through chemistry, and the fact that we can actually change our own physiology and inner equilibrium by means other than drugs is rarely considered…
🌐
The obvious disclaimer here is that medication is important for some, but these drugs are powerful and growing in Rx, they are psychoactive, and they are longitudinally unfounded in concern for the completion of autonomic processes. When we ignore these quintessential dimensions of humanity, we deprive people of ways to heal from trauma and restore their autonomy. Being a patient, rather than a participant in ones healing process, seperates people from their community, and alienates them from an inner sense of self.

It’s so valuable to put time into understanding healthy boundaries and what happens within you when other people don’t respect yours. Is that familiar to you? What are your scripts about doing things you think you ‘should’ do versus because you want to and it being or benefit to both yourself and other in equal measure. When affirming your boundaries, be clear, be kind, be consistent in communication. Healthy boundaries allow space for positive relationships that build and grow on a foundation of openness and respect without conditions based on fear or control  #biodynamicmasage #evolutionaryastrology #bodypsychotherapy #archetype #boundaries #hermeticprinciples #asabovesobelow #tothyownselfbetrue #therapist #healthyboundaries #selflove #honesty #truth #depthpsychology

...can be as simple as that:
.
“Feeling the weight of your attention, your own existence, inside your body”, as @bonniebainbridgecohen, the creator of Body-Mind Centering, beautifully describes.
.
This weight is a pleasant one, comforting and grounding, rather than heavy and constricting. It is as if the body gains more substance, becomes more *real*.
.
On the contrary, when we are disembodied, when we live in and operate from the mind alone, we can feel ungrounded, disconnected, even light-headed. Our body feels empty, internally weightless (regardless of our actual weight) -literally and metaphorically, uninhabited.
.
I often say to my clients, ‘you can only heal your relationship with your body, through the body itself -not through the mind alone.’
.
This is where the gap, the disconnect, has taken place and it can only be bridged when we involve the body in the process. Even more than that, when we place it at the very centre of the healing process.
.
So, let’s begin there. I’ve been finding a lot of comfort and presence lately by letting my awareness simply drop in and down through my body, from my head to my heart or belly/womb, and just be there. Today, I’m inviting you to do the same, and notice the difference.
.
To your presence and in-the-body-ness 🙏🏼
.
Have a beautiful Sunday, friends ♥️

В работе телесного психотерапевта  существует несколько видов телесного контакта. Один из них бесконтактный – это наблюдение за телом клиента, считывание с его тела определенных характеристик, дальше формирование у клиента навыка чувствовать эмоцию, переживание, свои реакции через тело или  уметь выразить это через метафору тела – предложить показать, например, что происходит с ним и его телом, когда он злится, радуется, когда ощущает, что его любят, когда он расположен к человеку или наоборот закрыт.
Второй вид контакта – прямой – определенные упражнения, когда терапевт прикасается к вам.  Для такого вида контакта обязательно условие доверия.
Есть ещё один непременный вид контакта – это контакт терапевта со своим телом – умение ощущать, как тело реагирует в разных ситуациях, в контакте с клиентом, обратная связь, умение искренне реагировать своими эмоциональными переживаниями и реакциями, которые возникают в контакте в том числе телесными. ❤️ #body #bodypsychotherapy #psy #psychoterapia #cute #help #work #lifestyle #life #vilchynska_fit

~one of my favourite books at the moment is this one. Most of us have an innate desire to help another but we don’t always know how to offer help effectively. This book talks of the three principles of spaciousness, compassion & clarity and speaks of going inside to understand how you are feeling first before offering help. #biodynamicmassage #bodypsychotherapy #forrestyoga #yoga #yogatherapy

Giving myself lots of rest today after my impactful therapy session last night. My body feels like it's been run over by a truck. I am tired.

Just started on a new canvas because it's something I love to do and also I thought it might help move my body through the traumatic experiencing but have found myself needing to take a break and snuggle in my comfy chair and with my favourite soft blanket. I need rest and containment.

I find myself wanting to blog about my session,yet not being able to find any energy to do so. 😴

Boundaries. Isn't it interesting that the boundary emotions are the ones that are least culturally valued? Anger, disgust...Parents may get frustrated with children saying "no" and many people feel shame when then speak up for themselves. Boundaries are absolutely essential to life yet, we have been trained in so many ways to shut them down in others and in our selves. 
This is a picture of 3 year olds being scary turkeys. Though they are certainly more cute than scary, its an important game. The turkey puffs up it's feathers and makes itself look big. It could be any animal. The dog barks and growls–not because it wants to hurt you, but because it's defending it's territory. "Get out!" It's not indignant (unless it's repressed) it's our sense of self.

Spiritual or new age ideas become reflexive answers, telling someone they should let go of their anger–that it's only hurting them. Maybe that's true. But the problem is that we never get around to helping someone discern from the anger what boundary needs to be held. Anger has really important things to say: "stop! you don't get to do that to me," "I deserve more." Taking away these boundary emotions creates the conditions for oppression and abuse. It's is so interesting that we have become more comfortable being polite than maintaining our own autonomy. #boundaries #boundary #speakyourtruth #somatic #somaticexperiencing #somaticeducation #anger #angermanagement #preschool #codependency #gymnastics #bodypsychotherapy #bodymindsoul #strength #somaticexperiencing #no #sayingno #kalima

The dog barks and growls–not because it wants to hurt you, but because it's defending it's territory. "Get out!" It's not indignant (unless it's repressed) it's our sense of self. Spiritual or new age ideas become reflexive answers, telling someone they should let go of their anger–that it's only hurting them. Maybe that's true. But the problem is that we never get around to helping someone discern from the anger what boundary needs to be held. Anger has really important things to say: "stop! you don't get to do that to me," "I deserve more." Taking away these boundary emotions creates the conditions for oppression and abuse. It's is so interesting that we have become more comfortable being polite than maintaining our own autonomy. #boundaries  #boundary  #speakyourtruth  #somatic  #somaticexperiencing  #somaticeducation  #anger  #angermanagement  #preschool  #codependency  #gymnastics  #bodypsychotherapy  #bodymindsoul  #strength  #somaticexperiencing  #no  #sayingno  #kalima 
Absolutely brutal therapy session last night. The kind where your whole body is wrung out by the end. But I am so utterly grateful for my amazing therapist who gets it right more often than she gets it wrong. 
Today is going to need to be a day of deep self-care as I recover from a truly harrowing session. I am so exhausted and my body still feels like it's crying even though I am not. It feels really strange, like the crying is in my gut and solar plexus not my eyes. 
I have this dense headache that won't go away even with painkillers. Which tells me it's dissociative/trauma release stuff rather than something physical causing it. 
Trauma is insidious in the damage it does.

The current meditation card for this week. I’m slowly working my through 73 cards, each one expanding a little bit further than the one before. It’s becoming easier to focus within meditation, and to connect meaning to messages in Powerful dreams as a result. #archetype #asabovesobelow #hermeticprinciples #aswithinsowithout #evolutionaryastrology #tarot #bodypsychotherapy #biodynamicmasage #yoga #knowthyself #healing #dreams

The body goes to the doctor, the soul goes to church, the mind goes to therapy...but where do we go to be whole? When I am going through a hard time personally, I am actually even more grateful for the sort of therapeutic work I do with people. Our stories are sacred. The stories our words tell, and also the stories our bodies tells as well as the stories of our souls. There is something profound that happens where there is permission to honor all of these parts. 
When I am going through a hard time, my first thoughts (as probably with anyone going through challenge) go towards, "I have nothing to offer," "I don't measure up" (in so many numbers of ways). But, I see myself doing my best and know enough to know that I am dealing with trauma, the brain I was born into, a spiritual journey, and simply a time of growth. If we are growing, we must all walk through the unknown sometimes. Then, as I find myself wanting support for my wholeness, I find myself grateful for what I get to offer to others. Something that is so simple and yet so profound but requires many roads of training and self-work to put back together the lost pieces of wisdom. 
It is redundant (because "healing" means "to make whole") but it truly is our wholeness that heals. Healing does not come from editing, restraint, control, or narrowing of yourself to fit in. It comes from the welcoming and integration of all parts--including more magical parts you didn't even know were there. While we may need the doctor, the church, the cognitive therapist, we must also have ways that these all come together. When we get to have our wholeness.

I am grateful to get to hold people's stories and be a space where it is possible to be whole. If you would like this sort of support, it is always my honor. I also thank you for reading these things here so that we can start to see things differently. #somatic #somatictherapy #breathwork #spiritualhealing #spirituality #bodypsychotherapy #bodymindsoul #soul #story #life #body #mind #healing #wholeness #therapy #touchtalk #somaticexperiencing #depthpsychotherapy #support

Softening the muscular armouring is an important step in allowing the body to breath and feel fully. The core energetic roller is just one tool we can use do this in #bodypsychotherapy.

💔BROKEN HEARTS ARE MORE THAN A METAPHOR... THEY ARE REAL!💔
When someone says "they have a broken #heart ", most of us think it’s just a metaphor for expressing their extreme #emotional pain. But there actually is a medical condition called broken heart syndrome, which manifests itself very similarly to a heart attack (chest pain, #anxiety , shortness of breath...) A #BrokenHeart #syndrome is usually triggered by the #death of a loved one or the #breakup of a relationship. .

This is hilarious. And concerning. But it’s also somewhat progressive. Communication and connection, and what they mean, are transforming at a rapid rate. I feel sad for alllll the humans as we become less attuned to our bodies and feelings. But I also feel hopeful that there are endless new ways we can express ourselves. Whether that’s through online counseling, social media, digital art... Avenues for expression have evolved which I hope assists make people feel empowered or provides a sense of belonging that didn’t exist previously. Online communities are also providing opportunity for real-life connections. If online connection means someone out there is no longer feeling isolated or alienated then that is freakin dope. This is me learning how to create a space for meaningful therapeutic relationship online. I believe it’s possible!

To most, attending an appointment in town is not even something to think twice about. For me, this route marked on the right became a torrid nightmare of breathless hell as I struggled, became disoriented by fatigue and beset by anxiety. The right is the plan I had to keep in my head of where the disabled parking bays are. Of the 16 of them in a 500m radius, the 16th was free and I needed the control centre at home (Christopher) to direct me to them. I arrived 30 mins late. When I left my battery (both phone and mind) had run out and I forgot where I parked and had to stagger into a shop to borrow their phone. 
It took me an hour to do the route marked as 4 mins. 
It is hard to remember how I used to be on days like yesterday. Yet this experience is common for anyone with chronic illness. 
If you have friends who suffer from chronic pain or illness please spare a thought for them when they are late or cancel or just can't keep up with appointments. 
As for me, I try and remember the gift that illness is for me, in so far as it makes me so much more able to fill my life with things I really want as well as a deeper ability to appreciate my own and other people's struggle. It has made me much more authentic and able to stand up to the grief and pain of life and loss rather than running away from it by being super busy and dashing from pillar to post. I have to dispatch with the notion if "the idealised self" - we all have one and many a time it is unachievable and unrealistic - and slow down, engage with meditation and Qi Qong to help me be more gentle and accept things as being just right the way they are. I am learning (slowly) self-compassion and finding ever more compassion for other people in the process. Life is fragile. Life is sweet.

**What is Scaravelli Insipired Yoga?** 23/11/18, 7pm-9pm @lightcentreuk  If you’ve never heard of Scaravelli Inspired Yoga, or if you are a dedicated fan, this workshop could be for you. Vanda Scaravelli pioneered a revolutionary approach to Yoga which is dedicated to listening to your body as it is in the present moment. Which means that we meet our bodies and ourselves anew every time we come to the mat. Using movement and attention and breath to find out, how do I really feel, right now? @tanyalovesyoga.

Gemini full moon reading with my fellow Gemini rising friend. We had several identical cards in the same places, how very apt for the dualistic energy of the twins, ruled by mercury the messenger, the only God who could travel both to the underworld and the over world. This is a time to focus on bridging the intellect and the animal Instincts. For the subconscious thoughts to be closer to our understanding through the conscious minds analysis. A time for seeking messages through both logic and intuition in regard to questions you are asking. A time to invite greater insight into why you’re asking those questions. #evolutionaryastrology #biodynamicmasage #yoga #tarot #gemini #geminirising #geminifullmoon #bodypsychotherapy #meditation #psychotherapy #shadowwork #innerwork #therapist #knowthyself #hermeticprinciples #aswithinsowithout #asabovesobelow #archetypes #symbolism

For our Gratitude Camp picture day, I wore my Aly Raisman style shirt. I am so grateful to have spent nearly 20 years creating a gymnastics programs based on somatic principles of respect and embodied wisdom. And now and SO grateful to get to be a part of healing this sport. Now, more than ever, people are ready to let in what is important. Movement is a development of self. Changing the way we teach movement can change the world. Kids should be able to get the good with out the bad. They should be able to get more of the good. Obviously, it should be a safe space. Physically, sexually, and also mentally and emotionally. In the most subtle ways, its the end of an old paradigm where abuse and control were necessary for success. 
Gymnastics also builds strength. Strength that ultimately over came. I am so grateful for Aly (now known for more than incredible tumbling) and so many others who stood up to demand this change. I am so grateful for all the kids though all these years who have grown up with us in a different way. And I am so grateful for the goodness that is yet to come.

Sports change the world. Thank you to all those using their sport, their body and their voice to stand up for what matters.  #gymnastics #safesport #alyraisman #somaticeducation #somatics #bodypsychotherapy #kids #childdevelopment #embodiment #kidshealth #kidsyoga #kidsclasses #westwood #westla #losangeles #metoo #truth #speakyourtruth #alwaysspeakyourtruth

What if curiosity doesn't kill the cat? Wouldn't it be a shame if our fear kills our curiosity, that could open to us many paths to growth. Our fear is often for the fear itself, and once we decide to face it... oh man, what treasures do we find in ourself and in life! Meet these courageous faces who commit to be the hero in their own journey. Even when it's scary, they charge on and come out with more #selfconfidence, #gratitude, #findingmyownway, while #nottakingthingsforgranted. Join us for the next Intensive Workshop on Nov 30th! ⠀⠀

My work and I love it. ❤ It is when we go to our most painful spots and dye a bit we can allow so much more light to shine through us, in and out. We are light. I see so much light in my clients when they just let go of what is not serving any more. 😍

Oh man! I did this for waaaay too long! The reality with doing this, is that shrinking made others around me comfortable but made me want to self destruct! Literally! 😤
We fight daily battles against oppression for others in worlds far away from ours...but then we suppress ourselves. Humans are weird...and so wonderful! So, let me tell you...you are allowed to be you! You are allowed to say yes. Say no. Dream big. Live large. Live loud. You are allowed! In fact, you being you...allows me to be me! So thank you! 🙏 
What I’ve learnt, is that when I stop shrinking and start striding authentically...my confidence, resilience and courage increases because I feel aligned and in integrity. And that is the sweetest frickin relief I’ve ever experienced! 
Where are you shrinking to make someone else more comfortable?

Ταξιδεύοντας σε ένα καινούριο τόπο, το βιολογικό σώμα ψάχνει τρόπους για να προσαρμοστεί στη καινούργια/άγνωστη συνθήκη... Προκείμενου να βρεθεί κάτι γνώριμο στο περιβάλλον που θα με κάνει να νιώσω οικεία, η ακοή οξύνεται, η όραση διευρύνεται, η γεύση και η όσφρηση ενισχύονται... Και κάπως έτσι σε αυτό το ταξίδι των αισθήσεων κάτι μαγικό συμβαίνει... Αρχίζω να βλέπω καλύτερα (“αυτή η εμπειρία μου άνοιξε τα μάτια”), εκπαιδεύομαι στο να ακούω πιο προσεκτικά, γεύομαι και οσφρίζομαι νέα πράγματα (“πήρα μια γεύση” από κάτι καινούριο) και έτσι η εμπειρία του να βρίσκομαι κάπου μακριά από το οικείο εμπλουτίζεται με νέες γνώσεις... για τον εαυτό και το κόσμο.

***What is Scaravelli Insipired Yoga?*** 23/11/18, 7pm-9pm @lightcentreuk  The practice is detailed (it has its roots Iyengar yoga) but we use the detail to connect to subtle sensations, movements and activations in order to move with greater freedom and ease. It’s less about being proficient at yoga poses (though that may indeed happen) and more about inhabiting our bodies more fully, moving with more freedom and ease, and knowing and perhaps liking ourselves a little better. @tanyalovesyoga.
