Tools & Practices

You already have what you need to achieve your optimal emotional health.

It’s not an expensive course.
It’s not a fancy yoga membership.
It’s not even a therapist.

It’s your body.

When you can truly listen to your body–your breathing, your heart rate, the rumbles in your stomach–you can use these signals as clues to how you’re really feeling.

Here you will find some more information on the modalities we use and recommend.

Breathwork

Breathwork

Your breath is both involuntary and voluntary. You breathe automatically without even thinking about it but you can also consciously change your breath and that will alter how you feel.

There are many practices within this modality and each type of breathwork has a different effect on the nervous system. Your breath can be used to energise yourself, to aid digestion, to release trauma and heavy emotions from the body or to alter your state in general. 

Conscious Dance

Conscious Dance

Instead of dancing from your head can you dance from your body? This modality is all about feeling and following your body, letting the body’s wisdom come through. Underneath the emotions there are layers of states of being that can only be expressed by the body through movement (or stillness).

There are many practices within conscious dance, but they are only conscious if: through the dance we examine ourselves, it is for state changing and it is more like a process. 

Embodied Yoga

Embodied Yoga

Yoga has been gaining popularity in Western culture for many decades now. But joining a strong vinyasa flow,  rocket yoga class or learning to perform handstand, has got nothing to do with embodiment. It can actually make you more disconnected from yourself.

Yoga should not be about looks, or competition or pushing yourself to the limit without being aware of your body. Embodied yoga practices (eg Yin, Hatha, EYP etc) will strengthen your mind-body connection and help you utilise mindfulness in your everyday life.

Cold/Heat Therapies

Cold/Heat Therapies

These practices have been present in many cultures for centuries. Exposing the body to extreme temperatures can strengthen the immune system, the circulation and the nervous system.

Whole body cold water immersion (ice bath or cryotherapy) also stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities.

Heat therapy like sauna can mobilise the parasympathetic nervous system response and can help with deep relaxation.
