-----------------------------------------

Lu teaches sessions as a form of active movement, exploring ways to connect with your body, a felt sense of awareness by befriending your body in an active mindful movement explorative way. Creating a safe, supportive space to learn emotional regulation skills through the connection of breath and increased body awareness.

It’s a practice that guides you into becoming more aware of body sensations and your breath. This body based practice better enables you to capture earlier body signs, indicators to stress, anxiety, feeling low, overwhelmed and exhausted. It is an extremely powerful tool when experiencing challenging emotions in situations that feel unmanageable and out of your control.

The sessions encourage self-led exploration to explore and navigate your own body sense, at your own pace, at your own choice so that you can:

  • Self-regulate your thoughts, feelings and behaviours
  • Improve your ability to manage difficult emotions
  • Take actions that benefit your well being
  • Better outcomes and intentions
  • Sense indicators from your body
  • Respond more intuitively
  • Take better care of yourself
  • Make more informed choices - decisions
  • Create space for exploration and enquiry
  • Create sense of calm, safety
  • Increase self-compassion, self-love

Just by getting on the mat, moving your body and consciously breathing, you are improving your ability to respond to life with less stress and more discernment, and feeling connected to your very own body.
