Connect with your body

Issue Thirteen – February 2019

How do you connect with your body and inner knowing on a daily basis? Are you listening to your body’s signals or have you somehow turned into an adult who knows how to walk, but have forgotten you have a body?

The symptoms of disconnection with our bodes manifest in many ways and can compromise our health. The good thing though, is that it’s never too late to change! I used to think I didn’t have the time to listen to my body and that it would slow me down. Today, I know that when I I become mindful and listen to my body, it actually makes me more productive and therefore saves me time and energy.

One of my favorite ways to connect is through Kris Carr’s mediation for busy people. It’s amazing how my body and brain feel so renewed and refreshed after just 10-15 minutes of deeper breathing and meditation! I equally love my yoga practice – it’s like a journey to self; of self, through self and to self – as well as connecting with my body and mind through movement. I always come up with new ideas and solutions when I am out running in nature. Of course, there is no ‘one way fits all’. You need to find a way that works for you and also, to be compassionate with yourself on your journey.

As coaches and other helping professionals, we know how important it’s to walk our talk. By connecting with yourself as a whole being of body, mind and spirit, you can assist your clients to do the same. It will help your clients to slow down, connect with their inner knowing and get to the heart of what really matters to them. Here is my story on how I got into Body-Centered Coaching. Now it’s your turn!

Fun and light living, Issue #5

 

Issue five – January 2016

Hi everyone and Happy New 2016,

This time of the year we get so bombarded with New Year’s resolutions and sometimes we forget the importance of just enjoying life and having fun! For example, did you know that research shows that having an active social life and spending time with friends and family, has the same favorable effects on the health as quit smoking? Having a fun and light living is actually good for your health and makes you live longer! If you want more to your list of proven, pleasurable and health strengthening activities, here are some recommendations (source SciLife);

  • Challenge your brain and keep it active
  • Have sex on a regular basis
  • Get enough sleep
  • Have fun and cultivate an optimistic lifestyle

A fun and light living is certainly on my personal resolution list! Additionally, I have mediation and mindfulness, as something I want to see more of in 2016. And isn’t it great how Law of Attraction works? Universe heard my message and the other day I received an invitation in my inbox to a free guided Mindful Meditation; Self-care for busy people by Kris Karr. I encourage you to check it out here, as well as other healthy lifestyle tips from Kris Karr – “The queen of Kale”. I have ordered the Mediation Album and now I am waiting eagerly to include it in my meditation practice!

Coaching, Mindfulness and the Body’s Wisdom, Issue #3

 

Fall is here! Even if you can’t tell by the warm weather here in Texas… the Fall semester has started and it’s well on its way. The school summer break is over and everybody is back into the routine again. And it’s necessarily not a bad thing! I have been blessed with a great, fun and relaxing summer, and now I feel ready for some new work challenges!

My Body-Centered Coaching Fall Tele Training Series (12 CCUEs) starts on September 22 – weekly until November 17, 2015, with Moving Beyond Limits.

images (1)Learn proven somatic, body-centered techniques founded by Marlena Field, to encourage yourself and/or your clients to move from head to heart. Join me for this highly interactive and practical tele-trainings module and you will discover what’s possible for you and your clients when we can move beyond our limiting beliefs. You can get more information about the Series three modules, and how to register here.

On October 15, 2015, I will attend the 16th annual Texas Conference for Women, in Austin, TX. The conference offers… “the community and connection, the information and inspiration, the motivation and momentum to help you discover what you want—and go get it!” Its a very inspirational and life learning day that I can recommend any woman!

And for the third time at the Conference, I will offer my coaching services in the Coaches Corner. Its designed to give Conference attendees an opportunity for one-on-one “speed coaching” sessions with an accredited coach from the Austin chapter of International Coach Federation (ICF). I would love for you to join me at the Conference, register here!

I am passionate about my body-centered coaching and I love sharing what I know! Therefore, I am happy for the opportunity to speak at the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Austin. At a breakfast in October, I will get the chance to share some of my coaching experiences and tips with the group “Young Professional Women”. What an honor to serve these young, future leaders! Its exciting and brings to mind how an upcoming speaker of the Texas Womens Conference completed the sentence;
“When a woman is in charge…
….problems get solved, opportunities are realized and potentials are reached“.

Love and presence,
Nina
