Why Yoga and Hypnotherapy?

The two practices actually have a great deal in common. One is that there are many different ways to practice and train in both! I’m lucky to have had the opportunity to train with outstanding practitioners in both fields, both during my initial training and in the years since.

From the very beginning I was intrigued by how frequently my teachers – and the historic sources they each draw on – were not only addressing the same issues, but also by the fundamental similarities in their approach and in the solutions offered.

At the heart of the training I’ve received in both disciplines is the importance of really paying attention to the client in front of me. Not only to your words, your body language and your posture but also, in some indefinable way, tuning in to the emotions you are experiencing, to what it feels like for you, right now.

It is this ability to really connect to what is going on for you, the client, that enables the experienced teacher or therapist to identify intuitively how to help you take your next step forward.

Clarity and movement … movement and clarity

With hypnotherapy, the first step is to achieve clarity. Clarity as to what is preventing you from achieving your full potential, and clarity as to why this is happening (because there is always a reason!). Then, if you’re ready to do so, we can work out together how to move things forward to create lasting change.

With yoga, on the other hand, we start with the movement. With learning to listen to how your body wants to move today, now. And for many people that may be enough, at least for the first few years! But with dedication and practice, this process of movement and listening can often be powerful enough to bring clarity and change, without the need to identify exactly what caused the original problem, or why.
