Leila Stuart, Centerpoint Yoga Therapy

Leila3A Message from Leila Stuart… I have been a student of yoga for over 35 years and a teacher since 1993. coque iphone pas cher Drawing on my passion for anatomy and my background as a Registered Massage Therapist specializing in structural realignment and movement repatterning, I have developed a transformational system of therapeutic yoga called Centerpoint Yoga Therapy, which caters to students with physical, mental and spiritual challenges. In classes and workshops, my focus is to create the conditions for students to experience their wholeness by exploring experiential anatomy and the interplay between awareness, gentle movement and breath. coque iphone By cultivating a felt sense of their “living” anatomy and inherent body wisdom, students can apply this intelligence in a practical way to their own healing process. coque iphone 2019 pas cher In my yoga therapy classes, I invite students to make yoga a living transformational process by asking them to practice “off the mat.” I strongly believe that the whole being in all dimensions must be engaged in order for healing to happen; this can occur when awareness is cultivated on a moment-to-moment basis. coque iphone I also strongly believe that the deeper teachings of yoga can be embodied so as to become a daily transformational experience. I had firsthand experience of the transformational potential of this practice when I developed a debilitating fatigue condition in 2001 and crippling rheumatoid-type arthritis in 2005. For 10 years, I was unable to do anything but the simplest, minimal physical practice; I was so grateful for all of the yoga therapy tools that I knew. It was awareness, meditation and the practice of Witness Consciousness that kept me going and prevented me from living in despair. coque iphone I was always able to do SOMETHING that would bring about some change in what I was experiencing. During this time, yoga transformed from a theoretical practice into an absolutely practical, lived experience.

Nicky Myers – Yoga Teacher – Recovery

Nikki MyersThe 12-step recovery model, created in 1939, is the most well-known and pervasive addiction/recovery program in the world with millions of practitioners internationally. In a word, the characteristics and effects of addiction could easily be described as separation. Addictive behaviors separate and disconnect us from ourselves, our loved ones, our environment and so much more. Conversely, yoga itself means union, integration, balance. Yoga and its practices teach the fine art of balancing our multidimensional lives while living in a complex world. The 12-step program approaches addiction at a cognitive level, yoga includes a somatic approach. The combining of the two creates a model that truly addresses addiction as the physical, mental and spiritual disease that it is. Y12SR recognizes that yoga and its practices are a part of a holistic recovery program and rather than a replacement, it provides adjunct tools to address the physical, mental and spiritual disease of addiction.
