Leila Stuart, certified clinical massage and yoga therapist, passionate pioneer of movement education, and author of the book Pathways to a Centred Body, shares with Shira how an injury led her to yoga as therapy back in the 70s, on a daily basis to keep the pain at bay.
Liela reveals how prana is conscious bio-electromagnetic energy, and needs to move through us to affect the quality of our emotions, energetic charge and how that effects physiology.
She explains how yoga therapy is a specialised training ensuring client safety and wellbeing through more education and understanding of the body, physiology and psyche, because many different causes can contribute to a specific issue.
A guided experiental anatomy practice that empowers. So self-knowledge leads to better habits, relationships and moods. And self-awareness, essential to lead us from unconscious incompetence, through conscious incompetence to conscious competence.
The importance of the multidimensional psoas; accessing our interic nervous system, connecting the entire upper body with lower body, enabling us to go deep within both viscerally and emotionally and mentally.
And how experience is knowledge and why being present and feeling what we experience leads to self-knowledge and empowered to change their health and wellbeing.
We talk about the importance of community and mentorship instead of yoga as commodity.
