The Flow of Life
Yoga therapy changes lives. Hundreds of scientific studies have found yoga to be an effective treatment for a variety of medical problems ranging from heart disease, high blood pressure, to diabetes, and psychological issues like insomnia, addictions, anxiety and depression.
Virtually anyone can do yoga, even those who start out with little strength, flexibility, or energy, and those with body issues or illness. Applied therapeutically, yoga is a powerful system of overall health and well-being which can:
- reduce stress
- release chronic tension
- increase strength and flexibility
- improve balance
- heighten cardio-vascular conditioning
- lower blood pressure
- improve immune function
- stabilize and lift mood
Sometimes, things don’t flow in life. It can feel like being stuck, divided, or blocked. Yet, most of us have had the experience of entering into a zone of complete absorption in the present moment, where time stood still, everything felt good, and we truly danced with bliss. Finding your positive flow is to experience abiding joy and a clear calm that pervades our being.

If you are looking for help in overcoming a period of emotional difficulty such as stress, anxiety or depression; counselling could help you achieve personal growth and make a profound difference to your life.
Over the past 20 years, a vast amount of research has been poured into studying how and why the ancient meditation practice of mindfulness leads to so many psychological and physiological benefits. It is without question one of the fastest growing areas in psychology and is emerging as one of the go-to tools in counselling and health services. Join one of my upcoming local Brisbane classes and workshops to see what all the fuss is about.
Trauma is a mind-body experience, even when the traumatic event leaves no physical trace. It exacts a profound toll on the body as well as the mind, and persists long after in the nervous system. Trauma is not just the story of something awful that happened but it’s also the imprint of fear left in the sensory and hormonal system. The body’s alarm bells turn on and then never quite turn off, leaving a suffering of disconnection, of never truly feeling relaxed and at ease in life.
