Loving yourself is a journey. What if there is a way to connect to that love daily?
My guest on this week’s episode has transformed the experience and trauma from her own journey in the highly competitive world of dance into a method that we can
Explore our deeply embedded trauma,
And step into a deeper love and appreciation for our own bodies–and ourselves.
It’s called Somatic Movement.
It's about embracing the language of your body, listening to its desires, and allowing the wisdom to guide you.
There is so much wisdom that's innately in the body.
Alana Williamson is an accomplished and acclaimed dancer, an instructor, a choreographer, a speaker and a somatic movement facilitator.
In this episode you will learn:
The difference between dance and somatic movement
The steps and process of somatic movement
Recognizing trauma loops and how to break them down
The importance of seeking out simple moments where you can tune into your body's desires
How to embrace the intuitive nudges our bodies send us, surrendering to them, and allowing our movements to flow
We even had the chance to bring COLOR into the conversation!
This conversation held a treasure trove of beautiful insights. As I revisited it, I was reminded of the importance of seeking out moments in life, simple moments, where you can tune into your body's desires.
After listening to this episode, you will want to find time to move your body. Move in ways that your body has not experienced since it was a very little body.
