Teaching Trauma-Sensitive Yoga with Lara Land
Jul 7 2024
Teaching Trauma-Sensitive Yoga with Lara Land
As yoga teachers, we understand the profound impact trauma can have on the nervous system and how yoga can serve as a pathway to recovery. In this episode, I explore the powerful practice of trauma-sensitive yoga with the yoga instructor and author, Lara Land. Lara guides us through the differences between trauma-sensitive yoga and traditional yoga classes. We explore how this specialized approach creates a sanctuary for students who have experienced trauma by emphasizing safety, choice, and non-judgmental exploration. Our discussion covers the spectrum of trauma responses, acknowledging that each student's healing journey is unique. Lara illuminates how trauma-sensitive practices, such as gentle asana, breath work, and Tristana's non-physical limbs, can facilitate reconnection with the body and a sense of empowerment. Lara's insights remind us that healing is not merely about restoring balance but also about rediscovering one's inner strength. We celebrate transformative stories, like that of a veteran whose life was reshaped through this approach, exemplifying yoga's vast potential for growth.  Lara's vision of making trauma-sensitive yoga accessible to communities affected by trauma is a powerful reminder of our role in creating inclusive and safe spaces for all students to begin their journey toward renewal and wholeness.Connect with Lara: www.laraland.uswww.landyoga.comFacebook .

Colorful Soul Healing: Exploring Synesthetic Art with Heather Eck

Colorful Soul Healing: Exploring Synesthetic Art with Heather Eck
In this episode, I explore the fascinating world of synesthetic art and healing with award-winning artist Heather Eck. Heather’s gift of synesthesia allows her to perceive sounds and music as colors and textures to create stunning visual art that promotes healing and personal growth.    Heather shares her personal journey of realizing her synesthetic abilities from a young age when she would draw the melodies she heard in music. She discusses how later discovering the term "synesthesia" allowed her to fully embrace and harness this unique way of experiencing the world. I chat with Heather about the process she employs to create therapeutic art that has touched many lives, including my own.   The heart of the episode explores Heather's one-of-a-kind artistic process for creating "Spirit Portraits." She walks us through:- How she intuitively connects with subjects through meditation on their photographs- Discerning the specific colors and symbols associated with their chakras - Allowing rhythms of music to guide the visual narrative on canvas- The profound resonance her soul portraits have for clients Stories are shared about the healing experiences and personal growth that have emerged through her work, including a powerful piece inspired by a friend's battle with cancer. Heather's own journey is highlighted - her transition from corporate HR to leaning into her passion as an artist and spiritual coach. This shift represented fully embodying her authentic self and the rewards of aligning with one's true calling.HEATHER ECK is a multimedia abstract artist and writer. An intuitive artist and painter, she interprets people, places, and experiences through color, a condition known as synesthesia. Like an enormous box of crayons, her gift operates by categorizing through intricate but specific shades of color.  While this condition enables her to experience color, she responds to these encounters with people, things, emotions, and spaces by understanding the particular shade of experience that a person dwells in. She uses her gift to detect the most healing color for them and transforms these vibrant energies into captivating paintings that uplift, inspire and heal. Connect with Heather Instagram Facebook Prints & Products: www.heathereckstudios.comwww.heathereck.comShow Offer!!

Evolving as a yoga student and teacher involves curiosity, somatic exploration and the desire for continuous learning, self-discovery and growth both on and off the mat.  When I first stepped onto the mat under Terry Cockburn's guidance, I couldn't have predicted the transformation that awaited me and how profoundly her knowledge and teaching would influence my own personal practice and teaching style.   Together we unravel the journey of yoga beyond just postures, sharing insights into its impact on personal growth.Terry and I  discuss: the difference between functional alignment (adapting poses to suit each individual body) vs. aesthetic alignment (visually perfect pose),the essence of a nurturing yoga practice,  creating an embodied practice - developing a deep awareness and a connection to the body,  the hurdles we’ve had to overcome as teachers, especially during the pandemic, and importance of keeping an open line of communication with students and guiding them toward health and progression in their yoga practice.  a shared love of Qigong and how incorporating it into your practice supports a healthy cultivation of energy. Through our shared experiences, we aim to inspire and support you in creating a daily practice, enriched by education and community. Terry's journey from learning yoga to becoming a teacher, trainer, studio owner and a creative energy behind the River Bird Sangha and school, reminds us of the power yoga has that shapes, not only our bodies, but our life’s direction. For thirty years, she has worked in the fitness and yoga industry as a trainer to individuals, teams and yoga schools and owned a vibrant community-based yoga studio, before pivoting to teaching online full-time with her  and partner Josh Summers.  Links: Riverbird Sangha Website                  InstagramEveryday Sublime PodcastMentions:John Munro www.longwhitecloudqigong.comLaurel Beversdorf  https://laurelbeversdorf.comKen Cohen's Book https://www.qigonghealing.comPaul & Suzee Grilley https://paulgrilley.comStephanie Keach https://youryoga.com/about/Mimi Kwo-Deemer  https://www.mkdeemer.comSend us a Text Message!
