Why learn from me?
I’m a qualified and experienced teacher of Maths (honed my skills on a tough crowd!) and Zen yoga (I trained with a Zen Master). I know the cycle of overwhelm and burnout all too well, having coached other teachers through it and then eventually burning out myself and quitting my much loved and hard-worked for career.
My journey back to health was through working with my body. I realised and continue to realise that I had been pushing against myself for years, pushing against the inconvenient signals form my body. Learning to tune int my body and listen deeply has been my route to healing and recovery and now to starting to create a life that works for me, rather than striving and pushing through overwhelm.
I weave together my knowledge and experience of psychology, Buddhist philosophy and practice and learning, to create highly effective and efficient ways to tune into your body and get out of your head. I see overwhelm as the gateway to living with ease as without it we cannot think clearly enough to make the decisions we need to move forward in our lives.
What method is taught?
My unique method for tuning into your body and listening, with kindness and curiosity. Tuning into your body gets you out of your head - which is where the overwhelm lives. I see this as the essential first step to be able to start living with ease.
The method was developed during my in-person teaching and through my own personal journey of recovery from burnout. This course is a deep dive into the method with the aim to teach you to be able to do it for yourself and start embedding into your daily life.
The course breaks down my method into four layers, each week building on the previous:
We often want to change how we feel, always striving for better. It can be a revelation to realise the power of just noticing. As one student commented ‘ I had no idea how much I was always wishing I felt differently’ This pressure to be other than we are is one of the main courses of overwhelm and burnout. Learning to pay attention to what is going on for you is the key to building a life that works with your unique rhythms and needs.
The Power of Your Attention
Everyone and everything wants your attention. Learning that you can control where you place your attention is a game-changer. Just knowing you have a choice can feel very rebellious. This week you start to gain control of your attention by purposely placing it in different areas of your body and practising last weeks’ Neutral Noticing
This week we add curiosity. Curiosity helps drop the continual self-judgement, the comparison to others who seem to cope much better than us. Catch your mind being critical of your body, of yourself and get curious instead.
The final layer is the superpower of self-kindness. Self-kindness is a prerequisite for resetting your nervous system but can be very hard to practice - which is why it’s in the final week when you will be ready for it! Find your off switch, allow your body to release patterns of held tension if it wishing to, and if it doesn’t, that’s ok - just noticing will be enough.
To help you embed this method of tuning into your body and noticing how you feel with curiosity and kindness. Embed and take this forward and start to create a life that works better for you - with more ease.
