yoga & bioenergetics
Sometimes you will experience emotional pain sourced from your body. You might be feeling sexually confused, suffer from listlessness, have a negative body image or just have a sense of muscular tightness. While previously dissociation or shame may have been running the show, you will begin to feel embodied again.
Emotions and relationships can seem blunted or dysregulated from emotional trauma. Studied movements are taught to you, and sometimes authentic, spontaneous movements, (or even silence and no movement), allows us to somatically be in the moment together. Bioenergetic movements encourage an energetic up-regulation or letting-down. Eventually experiences of safety in your own skin returns; you feel grounded.
If you are a dancer, meditator, athlete, or yoga practitioner, you may be most attuned to your body's experience of specific holdings or emotional patterns.
Bioenergetic and yoga movement in therapy leads to a visceral 'knowing', and is an amazing addition to traditional talk therapy.
