Whether you feel stressed out, anxious, need to release tension, alleviate pain, address a personal health challenge or a goal, or simply because you want to take great care of Yourself, I am happy to assist you on your path to ultimate health and wellbeing.
I am often asked the benefits from a Qigong practice and of an inner Journey or Sound Journey (in a private or group sessions).There are such a myriad of benefits that, in a few words I would say it is like training our body and mind to find our inner sanctuary of peace and bring back a feeling of balance or alignment where everything feels right.
Feeling caught in an endless “doing more” wheel? In our fast-paced society where we need to accomplish so much, or just try to keep up with the amount of work and chores. That constant and recurrent stress from work, school, relationships, home chores, social media and media in general, create habits, thoughts patterns and lifestyles that do not support us to find that inner sanctuary of peace, clarity, balance and happiness. It became such a challenge to relax! No wonder why most of us, often feeling overwhelmed, stressed, worried, with a scattered mind, it affects us on an emotional level (some frustration, anyone?)
To summarize the main benefits from our services:
Stress and anxiety relief
Concentration and clarity of the mind
Energetic alignment on bodily systems and emotions
Connection to Inner Guidance
The human body, like all living things, is an incredibly effective self-healing organism. Once you feel at peace and the energy within the body is in balance, self-healing and happiness naturally unfolds!
Practicing Qigong and sound and vibrational therapy are the main health modalities we are using.
When you work on muscles, it takes training to get them stronger. It is the same principle with the mind and the nervous system: It takes some training to calm the mind, go into a deep state of relaxation to reprogram pathways in the brain. There are several techniques or modalities to counteract patterns of anxiety and negative thinking and train our body and mind to slow down, be more focused, bring clarity, and overall to balance our emotions so we feel peaceful, strong, confident and happier!
The health modalities we are offering work at the energetic level so we are touching the deep core of our being because that's what we are: energy! The body is a network of vibrational fields and energy currents, and with these modalities we regulate energetic flow through the meridians, we bring harmonious frequencies into our cells so we access our self-healing abilities.
In addition these health modalities expand our awareness, allow us to reconnect with nature, and with who we truly are . It allows a connection with what we can call our True Self , Higher Self, Spirit, Source, inner wisdom, inner intelligence, inner guidance, Spiritual world, Teachers, Guides, Dao or God.... whichever word resonates with you. We like to use the word "inner guidance"
Over the past 17 years I have been experiencing, practicing and studying a palette of Eastern ancient practices, and medicine, as well as modern holistic Western healing modalities. I have been amazed that on an energetic level, what can appear a soft and subtle therapy or practice is actually the most powerful one as we are dealing here with the core of our being, our mind and roots of emotions.
I could not keep it for myself and was always eager to share with the ones around me. Over these years my practice has evolved, refining it so I can help most efficiently and adjust to today’s world. I am still learning and adapting my services to better “serve” the ones who come for guidance. I try my best to contribute in my own way to a better world, one step at a time, one person at a time, being the change I would like to see in the world.
I feel that what we need the most is to find that state of inner peace, having a calm and focused mind, feeling happy and full of energy…. Which is basically reconnecting to who we truly are! Stress being at the root of most dis-ease, anxiety, depression, and attention deficit being today’s pandemic, I am confident that these ancient practices and therapies are a key to bring back inner harmony.
Here is my background:
With a strong foundation in Ayurveda (Ayurvedic lifestyle coaching, dietetics and practitioner of pranic healing, marma points therapy and shirodhara therapy), I have been certified as a Kundalini Yoga teacher. My path came across Paramahansa Yogananda from Self-Realization fellowship and I followed his teachings. These were deeply transformative years and I integrated this practice in my daily life.
More recently, on a spiritual level, the Daoist and Buddhist practices (breathwork and meditation) allowed me to go deeper within. Naturally I expanded my knowledge in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and energy work, studying and learning how to use the sound healing and the vibrational therapy of tuning forks applied to acupuncture points (Acutonics). That path led me to the practice of Qigong flow, a safe practice for all ages, based on TCM which combines physical stretches with flowing movements and breath, and work on body energy pathways and energy fields. Qigong has became my core practice: I won't start a day without it and I am always looking forward to sharing it with those around me. I am YoQi certified associate instructor and grateful for the depth of the training I have received from Marisa Cranfill.
Working with sound healing and meditating, I was right on the path to “journeying”! There is a fine line between praying, meditating and journeying. As I learned the art of journeying a whole world opened up. That spiritual world has always been there but I did not know of a simple way to connect with it…… so I went on the shamanic path of journeying.
Haaaa…… let’s breathe: of course I would not miss diving deeper into that connection between our physical body and mind. Through my trainings in Kundalini and in Qigong, the breath is a crucial element in the practice: from the yogic Indian breathing techniques, to the Daoist techniques who cultivate that inner alchemy and generate more Qi (life force energy), I am also a certified facilitator for the Conscious Connected Breath (CCB) which is all about connecting to our Higher Self/True Self and reaching an altered state of consciousness. Life is truly a journey, isn’t it?
I will spare you from too many details. I have a few other “tools” in my box, assisting my clients as best as I can.
Below are my credentials and certifications.I hope our path will cross one day!
