As the years passed, I knew I needed more, almost like I had hit a plateau and needed to dive deeper into my healing journey. I found a 200 hour meditation instructor course, and dove into the Pratyahara (meditative) part of the yoga practice. I dove deep into the last 4 limbs of yoga and some buddhist teachings.
This is what changed my life!
I feel like this experience was what changed me to my core, on a cellular level, connecting me deeply to my intuition and wisdom.
This is where I understood the subtle energy body and wanted to learn more about energy healing. I had many fears and anxieties before my meditation journey and it was as though they had vanished.
Have you ever had that inner voice and barrier that keeps you stuck? That keeps you from getting what you want and becoming who you honestly deep down want to be? That keeps you disconnected from your intuition?
All that was gone, It was replaced with a deep sense of knowing. This is known in yoga as Vijnanamaya-kosha (wisdom/intellect/intuitive sheath, Air element).
That’s what meditation can do for you!
I was finally able to complete my reflexology course and then there was no stopping me.
I am now a Crystal Reiki Master, a Reflexologist, I got certified in a healing treatment called Aromatouch, and I certified in Champissage, all while studying and understanding the subtle energy body and energy medicine, the western and eastern. I started a holistic practice and offer these treatments while combining energy medicine and healing.
My dream was to study Yoga in India, but having a family this dream didn’t seem feasible, until serendipity led me to a local Teacher Training Course.
I dove in, and a year later I was a certified Yoga teacher.
The only difficulty was that I felt like a broken bird. I explored all my physical issues and received a long list of ailments, what I call «labels». Now, a yoga teacher, I was equipped with knowledge on how to heal my body.
And this is when I discovered the therapeutic aspect of the yoga practice. I also knew I wanted to make yoga inclusive/accessible, as I had clients coming into my holistic practice that couldn’t get down onto a mat.
As I continued to be guided this was exactly what was presented, I was getting offered gentle, chair yoga and meditation classes. I continued my yoga education to meet the needs of the aging body and became a life coach.
You too can reduce your physical pain, increase mobility, reach self-actualisation and live a better quality of life.
Yoga did that for me!
